Dental Care

Dental health care is a key component of our veterinary services, as poor dental hygiene negatively impacts overall health. Regular dental exams prevent gum disease and infections that can spread to internal organs through the bloodstream.

Physical Exam

Physical exams are just as important for your pet as they are for you and me. They are probably even more important because your dog or cat can’t tell you when they need to go to the doctor!  Even if your pet seems to be perfectly healthy, you should bring them in for a physical exam at least once a year, and more often if they are older.

“Harbourside Animal Hospital is a fantastic veterinary clinic. Tabatha, in particular, always takes extremely good care of us and our dog. We have had excellent interactions with both Dr. Hodge as well as Dr. Burns. I would highly recommend this vet to anyone seeking care for their animals.”

Featured In The New Barker Magazine

Harbourside's very own Dr. Timothy Hodge has written a featured article for Volume 44 of The New Barker magazine! The New Barker is Florida's top lifestyle magazine for dogs and their people.  In this article, Dr. Hodge discusses the myriad of natural and safe methods of flea and tick prevention for dogs. Fleas and ticks can impact our pet's health and wellness as well as cause chronic issues for our furry friends, which is why we believe proper prevention is always better for our pets and easier than treating an infestation.  Check out Dr. Hodge's articles in previous issues of The New Barker here, and click the link below to read Dr. Hodge's most recent article!
