Our staff at Robertson Mobile Vet is filled with passionate animal lovers who are here to help you and your pet! They are highly trained and dedicated to making sure that your pets receive the care and compassion they deserve every time they walk in the door!
We offer the following services to keep your pets healthy:
We offer solutions for a variety of behavioral issues that pet owners are faced with. Behavioral problems can be challenging and frustrating for both pets and pet owners, so it is our goal to work with you towards a solution.
There are many behaviors that can be negative or destructive, and many pet owners feel helpless in bringing peace to their home. We want you to know that we are here to help, and that undesirable behaviors can be corrected.
At Robertson Mobile Vet, we offer a variety of soft tissue surgery (including spaying and neutering), limited orthopedic surgeries as well as dental cleanings. All surgical procedures take into account each pet’s individual metabolic needs and each pet receives full anesthetic monitoring.
Preventative medicine is important when our pets are young, but as our pets age, and become prone to certain disease processes, annual exams and blood work becomes even more critical.
Annual exams and blood work to check liver and kidney values, along with thyroid function have the potential to alert us to early changes that may give us valuable information about your pet’s health. We understand the changes your pet will have as they become older, and we also know the importance of keeping your pet healthy as they enter their golden years.
Please call us today at (352) 373-6203 to learn more about caring for your senior pet.
If you want to travel internationally with your pet, you need to plan ahead. Since each country is different, you will have to contact the embassy or consulate where you are going to find out what you need to do.
Though every country has different requirements, most require a health certificate that is done by a USDA-accredited veterinarian. Luckily, we have a USDA-accredited veterinarian. If you are not a client, you need to make sure you bring your pets’ records in with you to the examination.
You will always need a health certificate and proof of vaccination. You may also need a microchip and blood tests. Many countries require that your pet get treated for parasites prior to travel. You may also need certificates for the airplane ride.
Since each country is different and we can’t stay up to date will all of the changes in each one, it is important that you call ahead and know what you need. Then, we will make sure that your pet is all ready to go!
We are proud to announce we are now offering laser therapy, an innovative new way to treat pain and inflammation in pets. Laser therapy uses specific wavelengths of light to create therapeutic effects such as improved healing time, pain reduction, increased circulation and decreased swelling. Multiple studies have shown laser therapy can help with a variety of problems including arthritis, joint pain, ligament sprains, muscle strains, dog/cat bites, feline acne/asthma, hotspots, post trauma/surgery pain, hip dysplasia, lick granulomas and snake/bug bites.
At Robertson Mobile Vet, we can do most diagnostics in-house. From routine blood work to radiographs (x-ray) we offer an array of in-house services. For more specialized diagnostics, we use reliable reference laboratories as well as have specialists that come into the practice in order to offer abdominal ultrasounds and echocardiograms.
At Robertson Mobile Vet, we are happy to offer microchipping. Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It’s a tragedy that happens all too often.
But there is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure your pet’s safety and retrieval should he or she ever become lost. Microchipping is a standard procedure that implants a tiny chip underneath your pet’s fur. It is a painless and relatively fast procedure and is completely safe.
Over the years, there has been an increase in the need for consultation appointments to discuss with clients their concerns about their pets, whether it’s their behavior, changes as they have aged or weight gain/loss. Consultation appointments are available to discuss concerns, options and next steps needed for whatever stage of life your pet is in.
Flea/Tick and Heartworm Prevention – No one likes to see fleas or ticks on their pet. Fleas and ticks can transmit diseases and we want to avoid that by assisting you through proper prevention. Mosquitos can also transmit a deadly, and unseen disease to your pet; heartworms. There are topical products, oral solutions, and injectable options for flea, tick, and heartworm prevention, so call us today at (352) 373-6203 for us to help you determine which options are best.
Pets that are in pain are miserable. For this reason, we will do whatever we can to keep your pets comfortable.
We have many different choices when it comes to treating apets’ pain. There are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs which are very helpful with mild pain. We also prescribe steroids which can offer a lot of relief. We also have stronger pain medications if the non-steroidal medications are not enough. We also offer glucosamine in tablets and injections to help with arthritis.
Being mobile as well as having an office, Robertson Mobile Vet knows that everyone’s life is busy. In order to make it convenient for clients to have access to their pets-medications we offer an online pharmacy (VetSource) so you can have your pets-medications, prescription diets, and supplements delivered straight to your home.
We believe the best way to promote overall health is through preventative care. Regular checkups allow us to establish a baseline in your pets’ health and make us aware of any changes that may indicate future problems.
We highly recommend bringing your pet in for regular exams. Often health problems that go undetected can become more severe issues when left untreated, so checkups are important even when your pet appears healthy.
We are pleased to offer our clients the highest quality veterinary care. We want nothing but the best for our clients, especially during surgery. It is our goal to make sure that our surgical team is prepared to offer our clients the latest medical procedures. We look forward to learning about the newest medical advances in surgery and actively partake in continued surgical education.
At Robertson Mobile Vet, we believe that routine preventive and wellness care are essential to maintaining the health of every pet. From a young puppy or kitten receiving the proper vaccinations, to a geriatric pet having routine exams and geriatric blood work; we strive to maintain healthy animals in order to continue the human-animal bond.
Vaccinations – Proper vaccination administration is important to the health of every pet. Dependent upon their life stage and environmental risks, each pet has a different requirement for vaccines that we assist in helping you determine.
Deworming – It is important to treat your pet for parasitic infections to maintain a healthy pet. Worms are parasites found inside the body of pets. They can be found either in the intestine or other organs of the body. Deworming can be done either by tablets, syrup, or injection.
Hospice and Palliative Care
As our pets age, there comes a time when their comfort and quality of life has to be determined. By offering multiple options for palliative care as well as end of life services, we can help in this difficult time of all pet owners lives.request an appointment
