Pets We Treat

In a recent survey, it is estimated that 43% of households in the United States have at least one dog, and close to 36% of households have one or more cats.  At Tampa Veterinary Hospital, we realize that not everyone considers themselves a 'Dog' or a 'Cat' person.  Our doctors love to see a wide variety of species that don't walk on four legs. Of course, we see plenty of dogs and cats, but we also see what some people would consider non-traditional pets.

Not only are our specially trained veterinarians skilled at diagnosing illness or disease, they can also discuss with you a variety of needs for your special pet including diet, environment, handling and other issues which are important to keeping them healthy and happy.
