Though television audiences remember Lassie for saving distressed children from wells, her handlers remember her for being a regular dog who didn't know that she was famous. Keep your superstar healthy with this Groupon.
$20 for a Wellness Exam for a Dog or Cat ($58 Value)
Each appointment includes a dermatological exam, an evaluation of all major organ systems, and an inquiry into the furball’s behavior and home life. The veterinarians may recommend vaccinations that might be due, discuss routine diagnostic testing, and lend their expertise during a dietary consultation aimed at long-term health and improved table manners.
Pet Medical Centers
Under the umbrella of Pet Medical Centers, nine Miami-Dade and Broward-area veterinary hospitals provide sophisticated healthcare for furry, feathered, and scaly family members. The hospitals’ specialty services include nonanesthetic dental care, ultrasounds, radiology, and endoscopies. All locations boast surgical operating rooms equipped with windows and cameras to give owners peace of mind, and many of the clinics are equipped with lasers for blade-free incisions. Besides emergency care, the doctors and technicians—some of whom have appeared as specialists on Univision and Animal Planet—perform general wellness examinations and informative nutritional consultations.
Although medical care provides what pets need, boarding services treat pets to what they want. Most locations double as cat and dog hotels, but only one deserves the title of pet resort—at Coral Springs Pet Resort and Medical Center, animals enjoy a climate-controlled dog park with a pool, baths with massaging jets, and expansive canine suites with window views.
