1. How often should my pet have an exam?
~There are many factors that determine the frequency of recommended exams, like age and overall health. Our exams are tailored to your pet’s specific needs. We will discuss with you your concerns about your pet’s health and decide together your pet’s exam schedule.
2. How often should I bring my pet for a rabies vaccine?
~There are 1 year and 3 years Rabies vaccines available. Your pet’s needs may vary. Therefore, after a physical exam, vaccine history, and discussion with our veterinarian, we will customize a complete immunization schedule for your pet.
ALERT: There has been a rabies alert in our area in February, 2016. A rabid cat was found on corner of Del Valle and Ehrlich Rd. in Citrus Park. All pets indoor and out should be vaccinated.
3. Is it true that Dr. Brooks and staff spend a vast amount of time and hospital resources treating, saving and rehabilitating local wildlife?
~We spend time and hospital resources to assist the FWC and local rehabbers serve the wildlife in our area.
4. What is “Pet of the Month”?
~Pet of the Month is a fun contest we run once a month. Clients submit pictures via email or through Facebook message. Once we end the submitting phase, we then post all entries onto our Facebook page. Finally, the pet’s picture receiving the highest amount of “LIKES” will be deemed Pet of the Month. You can “SHARE” our post with your pet’s picture to your FaceBook page, but you must direct people to “LIKE” your pet’s picture on our DIRECT FaceBook page, as we cannot view “LIKES” on your personal page. Once we have a winner, that pet will receive a giveaway (which varies each month). Then, your pet will be added to our Website gallery for the month that he/she won!
5 .Does Citrus Park Animal, Bird & Exotics Hospital give clients estimates before every service?
~We encourage you to ask for estimates on all procedures. Our sincere wish is that you know to the best of our ability what your pet’s medical needs will cost. This way you will be better informed, allowing you to make the best health decisions on your pet’s behalf.
6. Does Dr. Brooks refer pets to specialists if he feels they need further care or evaluation?
~In the event the veterinarians at CPAH would like your pet to be seen by a specific specialist, we will match you and your pet’s needs with the best veterinary specialist. We are fortunate in our Tampa Bay area with veterinary specialists in fields like internal medicine, opthamology, soft tissue, orthopedic, oncology, cardiology, and more.
