At Fort Caroline Animal Clinic we are proud to offer a broad variety of veterinary services in our state of the art facility. We treat dogs, cats and pocket pets (guinea pigs, rabbits, hamsters, rats, etc.)!
More than 80% of dogs and 70% of cats over three years old have some form of dental disease. Dental disease can be very uncomfortable for pets and the longer it is left untreated, the more complicated and costly it becomes to treat. Furthermore, certain dental diseases can lead to issues with your pet’s heart, liver and kidneys, and can also flood their body and bloodstream with harmful bacteria. At Fort Caroline Animal Clinic, we conduct a thorough oral exam during each wellness visit and are equipped to conduct more thorough teeth cleanings if a cause for concern is identified.
Fort Caroline Animal Clinic offers “happy visits” free of charge for clients and patients. We prefer these appointments are scheduled, but we are also happy to see you and your pet for these visits on a walk in basis as well. The concept of the happy visits is to condition pets to enjoy going to the vet by having visits that are full of positive experiences. This allows pets to be comfortable when they come to actual veterinary appointments, which leads to more efficient and timely care. A happy visit includes weighing your pet, walking through an exam room if possible, love and affection from the staff, and a treat or two!
1 in 3 pets go missing at one point or another during their life. At Fort Caroline Animal Clinic, recommend you microchip your pet as it may greatly increase their chances of being found if they were to become lost. Microchipping is the most effective means of identification for your pet. Similar to vaccinations, microchipping is safe, quick and causes little pain. Once the microchip is inserted you just simply register and rest easy knowing you’re protected in the case your pet becomes lost.

Routine wellness visits, healthy diet and exercise are three of the easiest ways to keep your pet healthy. Additionally, our knowledgeable doctors and staff use wellness exams as an opportunity to educate clients on how to care for your pet to give them the happiest, healthiest life possible.
