Our veterinarians at Safe Harbor Animal Hospital have developed a unique system of care for all your animal companions in Pensacola, Florida. As pets grow older, their care and dietary requirements may change. Therefore, it’s important to familiarize yourself with each age group’s specific health requirements, from a few weeks old to the ‘golden years.’ Additionally, scheduling your pet a routine wellness exam is essential for keeping them in optimal health.
The following information provides a detailed list of our comprehensive wellness and preventative pet care services currently offered by our veterinary hospital.
Puppy & Kitten Preventive Care
Our new pet or puppy/kitten care includes:
A full veterinary “nose-to-tail” physical examination

You may have many questions about your new family member – we encourage you to ask us! As your partner in pet’s health, we are committed to helping you feel informed and comfortable in all your decisions.
Senior Care for Pets
Since pets age faster than humans, we recommend an exam every six months after your pet turns 7; this helps them to live a longer, happier life. In human years, this would be equivalent to seeing the doctor every two years or so. Good senior pet health care requires attention to several factors:
Diet and weight management
Early disease detection blood and urine tests
The function of thyroid, kidneys, and liver
Eye and vision health
Pain management discussion
Regular exams and testing allow us to determine what is normal for your pet, and knowing these results helps us detect any abnormalities early. Early diagnosis is crucial to your pet’s health and may also significantly reduce treatment costs.
