Qs & As

Do you have a medical or behavioral question for our vets?  Submit your question to us and we’ll ask one of our vets to research it for you.  We will then print the question and answer in our newsletter.  Please submit your questions to newsletter@actampa.org.

Questions from a client:  “Do you need to see a doctor first to schedule surgery? I have a black lab 9 yrs old who has a growth on her upper eyelid. I would like it to be removed.”

Answer:  Yes.  Although we perform growth removals, pyometras and other live-saving surgeries, our veterinarian needs to see your pet for an evaluation.  The low cost surgeries are extremely popular and can take about a week to schedule. If yours is an emergency, make sure the receptionist knows that when you call 813-250-3900 and we will accommodate the situation.  

Question from a client:  “I don’t have much money.  What should I do?”

Answer:  Call us so we can help.  Our prices are low. Most often, once you realize how small the fees are to do what your pet is in need of, you can find the money.  We keep our prices low because we live our motto “Caring more.  Costing less.”  If that doesn’t work, we’ll help you figure a way around it.  That’s the Caring part.
