At Southwood Animal Hospital & Pet Resort
we offer the following services for your pet.
Treat your pet to a luxurious bath. Our special, cleansing baths remove dirt, debris and that doggie pet odor- your pet will feel fresh and revitalized. If scratching is a problem, our medicated baths contain soothing agents that help stop the itching.
Illness doesn’t always have a physical cause. We employ a veterinarian with advanced training in animal behavior who helps determine the cause of such disorders as separation anxiety, obsessive behavior, and aggression issues. She will then develop a customized treatment regimen for the client.
Birds, Reptiles, Rabbits, and Small Mammals
Veterinary medicine for exotic pets is growing as the popularity of these animals increase. With better public education in health, nutritional and environmental management, all species have greater chance for living longer and healthier lives. We employ staff veterinarians who possess experience in the care and treatment of exotics.
Pets are like our children- we feed, nurture and lavish attention on them. Our highly qualified kennel staff does the same when you can’t be there. We provide loving care to keep them both happy and healthy during their stay.
Is your pet unhappy or lonely while you’re at work? Give your companion the personal attention he or she deserves throughout the day. We offer the same TLC and additional amenities offered to our pet resort guests.
Regular professional cleaning is important to maintaining your pet’s teeth. We use modern and safe ultrasound technology to clean each tooth thoroughly above and below the gum line. Dental technicians polish teeth to create a smooth, lustrous tooth surface more resistant to plaque buildup. Fluoride treatments help strengthen enamel and reduce tooth sensitivity. Advanced dental care is available to those patients who require it.

In an emergency, seconds count. Emergency care is offered during all regular business hours. In addition, we are affiliated with Pet’s Emergency at Northwood Animal Hospital, the only 24 hour emergency center in Tallahassee.

Some pets require special food, and all pets benefit from a balanced diet. Our trained staff is available to help you to choose the right diet for your pet to keep him or her happy, healthy and active.
Animals feel pain and discomfort just as people do. We know that recognizing and alleviating pain in our patients helps them recover more quickly from illness and surgery.
Radiology-Xrays help our veterinarians evaluate musculoskeletal, cardiovascular (cardiopulmonary), gastrointestinal, reproductive and urinary systems. We also offer intraoral radiology for our dental patients.
We offer many surgical procedures, the basic spay or neutering to advanced surgical techniques. All patients are carefully screened prior to surgery and anesthetics are specifically tailored to your pet. Adequate equipment allows us to constantly monitor your pet’s body temperature, blood pressure, heart and respiratory rate, and blood oxygenation during their procedure. In addition, our trained technicians also provide intense intraoperative and postoperative care for your pet.
This non-invasive, state-of-the-art technology uses sound waves to painlessly examine specific internal organs – primarily the heart and abdominal organs. Pregnancy sonograms are also available. condos are located behind a store front glass window providing cats 24 hour access to outside viewing.
