Animal Wellness and Vaccinations

Ongoing Preventative Care

Ensure your beloved pet lives a long, happy and healthy life, thanks to the preventative care services from All Pets Clinic. By making a commitment to your pet's ongoing wellness, you'll protect it from a wide range of common ailments. Preventative care can also identify any potential health issues early before they have a chance to truly develop. Regularly scheduled exams are another way to keep up with your pet's health and diagnose any potential ailments that may be causing them difficulties.

Customized Wellness Plans

We'll work with you to create a customized preventative care plan tailored to your pet's specific needs. These plans can include:
  • Heartworm and flea prevention
  • Nutrition and weight management
  • Parasite control
  • Vaccines
  • Immunize Your Pets

    One of the simplest ways to keep your furry friends healthy is with vaccinations. This can prevent a number of common ailments. Our goal is to always keep your pets healthy and disease-free while never over-medicating them. We'll create a custom immunization plan to suit their lifestyle.

Every pet has its own specific dietary needs. At All Pets Clinic, we'll work with you to determine the perfect mix of food to give your pet a healthy life. We can also help you figure out an exercise routine to keep your pal at a safe weight.

Some allergies can simply be controlled through lifestyle changes, including rethinking your pet's diet.

    Alternative Medical Treatments

    Acupuncture for Pets

    Acupuncture is used to address any disruption in your pet's body's natural energy sources. Acupuncture needles are inserted into specific places throughout the body, thus causing a cellular response to restore energy, promote healing and reduce any pain. Veterinary acupuncture is used to treat respiratory problems, arthritis, immune system issues and many other ailments.

    Chiropractic Animal Care

    Chiropractic care and adjustments are used to correct the musculoskeletal system when it has become misaligned. The most common target of chiropractic is the spine. This process can help relieve pain, improve movement and enhance your pet's overall well-being.

Using positive reinforcement, rewards, training and other techniques, we'll create a customized plan to get the right results.

    Heart Health

    Diagnosing Cardiac Conditions in Animals

    While heart disease and other ailments are commonly known in humans, pets can also suffer from such conditions as well. Thanks to the latest in advanced diagnostics and medicine, the knowledgeable team at All Pets Clinic can effectively detect and address your companion's heart problems. As with most health conditions, early detection is the key to a successful treatment plan.

    Comprehensive Cardiac Exams

    All Pets Clinic offers comprehensive animal cardiology services, including physical exams to check for heart murmurs and abnormal rhythms. If a problem is detected, we can use more advanced testing, such as EKGs and echocardiograms. Our staff will then evaluate the results and help determine the right necessary treatment.

    Emergency Veterinary Care

    Call Right Away for Critical Pet Care

    In the event of a pet emergency, such as an unexpected illness or an accident, All Pets Clinic is here for you. Our dedicated team is here for you in your time of need. Our clinic offers life-saving emergency veterinary care, thanks to our experienced team who can quickly and effectively diagnose any health problems.

    Signs Your Pet May Need Urgent Care

  • Bleeding
  • Broken bones
  • Convulsions or seizures
  • Cuts, lacerations or puncture wounds
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Difficulty urinating
  • Disorientation
  • Dental Health Care

    Bad Breath

    An animal's bad breath is a common complaint heard from pet owners. Just like humans, animals need proper, regular dental care. Come to All Pets Clinic, where we offer complete dentistry services for all types of animals, big and small. Without proper dental care, bacteria can form in your pet's mouth, leading to potential larger health troubles.

    Routine and Advanced Oral Care

    From routine preventative care to more advanced dental treatments, we offer your pet all the necessary dentistry services available. Whether your furry friend needs a tooth extraction or it's just time for an annual exam, our caring team can do it all, using the safest methods.

    Signs of Dental Disease

  • Bad breath
  • Dropping food
  • Excessive drooling
  • Loss of appetite
  • Pawing at the mouth
  • Red, swollen or bleeding gums
  • Sudden disinterest in chew toys
  • Swollen or painful face
  • Yellow, broken, loose or missing teeth
  • Annual Cleanings and Exams

    Caring for your animal's dental health is a year-round process. In addition to annual check-ups, we recommend brushing your pet's teeth at least three times every week. If you'd like, we can teach you the proper brushing techniques and recommend any dental health products.

    State-Of-The-Art Diagnostics


    You can usually tell if there is something bothering your pet. Unfortunately, pets cannot talk and tell you exactly what the matter is. Our experienced staff at All Pets Clinic can diagnose your companion animal's health troubles using the latest technology at our in-house laboratory.

    On-site Lab

    Our on-site diagnostic lab lets us easily run a number of tests and then get you the results quickly. There's no need to send out for results and having to wait for days to get any answers. By running blood tests, urinalysis and other tests in-house, we can more easily determine the best treatment plan. Lab work is also available as part of any routine health screenings.

    Advanced Imaging Technology

    At All Pets Clinic, we also have modern imaging services at hand, including X-rays and ultrasounds. This non-invasive technology gives us a better look at your pet's internal organs and bones, thus helping us identify any injuries or illnesses. X-rays can also monitor your pet's healing process while recovering from injury or surgery. Ultrasounds are often used in conjunction with X-rays to give us a more complete view of your pet's organs.

    Endoscopy and Other Surgeries

    We try to avoid surgery whenever possible. An endoscopy is a popular alternative as it does not require any incisions. An endoscope is used to gently examine and evaluate your pet's stomach, colon and intestinal tract. This procedure is also used to perform biopsies.

    However, in some instances, surgery is the only option. You can place your trust in Dr. Vargas and our experienced team. We use the safest pain control medication to help your pet relax during any procedure. A safe, quiet recovery area is on-site as well to ensure your pet's comfort while recovering from surgery.

    Veterinary House Calls

    We'll Come to You!

    Most veterinarians don't make house calls. However, Dr. Mauricio Vargas got his start running his own mobile vet practice before opening All Pets Clinic in 2011. If you can't make it to the clinic, your pet won't cooperate or you own a larger animal that cannot be transported, give us a call at 941-751-1200. No matter what the reason is, we're happy to come out and meet your pet.

    Benefits of Veterinary House Calls

    House calls save you the time and effort of having to transport your animal companion to our clinic. Your pet will always receive one-on-one care in a comfortable setting. If you own multiple pets, a house call eliminates the need to bring them all to our office.

    Frequently Asked Pet Health Questions

    After my pet is microchipped, what else should I do?

    The microchip should continue to work with no maintenance throughout the life of your pet. However, if you move or change your phone number, please contact its manufacturer to have its information updated. If your pet is lost, the microchip will have your current, up-to-date contact information.

    Can I get pet health insurance? What is usually covered?

    Pet health insurance works the same way as your health insurance. There are premiums, deductibles and multiple levels of coverage to choose from. Basic levels of coverage take care of routine checkups, visits and diagnostics. More comprehensive plans may include prescriptions, procedures, surgeries and disease treatments.

    Does my pet need a full set of vaccinations for a rabies certificate? Which shots are necessary for my pet and how much do they cost?

    Only a rabies vaccination is needed for a rabies certificate. However, your pet will probably need a full physical exam before the rabies vaccine is administered. Ask your vet about which shots and vaccines are necessary for your cat or dog. There are usually "core" vaccines as well as additional preventative options. Remember that preventative care costs much less than treatment of an issue later on.

    How do I know if I am getting value from my veterinarian?

    A good veterinary clinic should be meeting the needs of both you and your pet. In addition to quality care, a veterinary practice should provide you with regular communication, further information about pet health and always follow up about your animal companion's well-being.

    My pet isn't getting any better after my visit. What should I do?

    First, make sure you are aware of the timeline for treatment and recovery. If your vet told you that your pet wouldn't be back to normal for a few days, wait until this timeframe has passed. If your pet still isn't getting better, call right away. A follow-up exam may be required to check on their progress and determine the next step.

    I am having trouble dealing with the death of my pet. Where can I turn to find help?

    Dealing with the loss of a pet can be a truly difficult process. Your pet is a part of your family and their passing can hurt as much as that of a human family member. Many veterinary hospitals, as well as therapists and professional organizations, offer counseling following the loss of a pet. There are also pet-loss hotlines and support groups online to help. You don't have to face this difficult time by yourself.

    Can I ensure my pet's health while also making sure vet visits remain affordable?

    The more you care for your pet at home, the less you'll have to spend on visits to the vet. Maintaining your pet's diet, weight, exercise, hygiene and grooming will prevent any frequent trips to the veterinarian's office. You should still bring your pet in for regular checkups as well as all proper vaccinations and shots. It is also a good idea to set aside a "pet emergency fund" in case of any unexpected health problems that may arise.

    My cat doesn't go outdoors, so why does he or she need a heartworm, flea or tick preventative program?

    Even though your cat doesn't go outside, insects can still get inside your home. Mosquitoes carry heartworm disease and can get indoors, causing infections. Fleas and ticks can also enter your house via your clothing. There is no true way to 100% prevent these insects from getting inside, which is why your cat should be on such preventatives.

    My pet has the same issue as the last time he or she was treated. Can you just prescribe the same medication as before?

    Your pet's symptoms may appear the same but the actual disease could be different. Multiple diseases share similar symptoms, so this could be a completely new issue. You should schedule a new appointment to make sure your pet receives the correct diagnosis.

    How can I choose the right veterinary hospital for both myself and my pet?

    A good relationship with your vet is key to your pet's health. Decide what factors are important to you, such as their hours or their reputation. Schedule a consultation to meet with the vet in person to get more of a feel of if their practice is right for you.
