Dr Smith and the staff at Sarasota Veterinary Center are firm believers in preventative care for our four-legged family members. Dr. Smith’s years of experience in emergency and critical care medicine taught him the importance of placing an emphasis on preventative medicine to keep pets healthy, happier and living longer. We apply this philosophy to pets of all ages from pediatric care for puppies to wellness care for adults to geriatric medicine for aging pets.
As the human/animal bond grows stronger and advances in medical technology helps pets live longer, we want to insure a great quality of life for our client’s pets. We teach our clients to be proactive in order to avoid problems that could adversely affect their pet’s health and well-being. Part of our exceptional service is to take the time to explain why we make certain recommendations to protect your pet’s health.
A large percentage of our day is spent on explaining things and answering questions so pet owners can make better informed decisions on their pet’s health and well-being. Whether we are discussing products such as heartworm or flea and tick preventatives, a procedure such as a dental cleaning or a supplement or dietary recommendation, you can be sure that Dr. Smith has researched all the possibilities and will give you the best advice for your pet. He will answer all of your questions and allow you to be a part of the decision making process as well. It all fits in with Dr. Smith’s longstanding motto that “Pets Are Family Too”!
