Royal Pets Market & Resort (“the resort”) offers complete veterinary and spa services to meet all of your pet’s needs. Preventative medicine is the key to keeping your pet healthy and active. The resort offers a complete plan for maintaining your pet’s good health, from dental visits to vaccinations.
A trip to the vet can be an expensive visit. However, the monthly wellness plans are very reasonably priced. The monthly plans start at $39.95 for cats and $49.95 for dogs. The plans will give you peace of mind knowing that your pet has access to the professional veterinarians at an affordable price.
Some of the key features of the Wellness Plans are:
• $10 unlimited vet visits
• all annual core vaccines
• annual blood work and wellness tests
• free visits to the hotel and salon
The Palace Plan and the Crown Plan include teeth cleaning and prophylaxis. The same day out-patient service includes pre-dental blood chemistry and complete blood count, IV catheter, anesthesia, monitoring, and dental cleaning, scaling and polishing.
Dental care is an important aspect of your pet’s health. A professional dental cleaning is required to remove plaque, tartar, and bacteria from under the gum which can travel to the heart, kidneys, and liver. A healthy mouth will not only help your pet to eat better, but will also improve their overall health.
Signs of dental problems in your pet can include:
• bad breath
• broken or loose teeth
• teeth that are discolored or covered in tartar
• abnormal chewing, drooling, or dropping food from the mouth
• reduced appetite or refusal to eat
If you notice any of these symptoms, contact the resort to schedule an appointment.
If your pet suffers from acute and chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, thyroid disease, Cushing’s Disease, heartworm, or allergies, the highly trained staff can work with you to determine and implement the proper treatment plan for your pet.
Kay and Mark Dunn’s dog, Mighty Mouse, suffers from arthritis due to his advanced age. The veterinarians at the resort give him treatments that ease the pain and stiffness he experiences and help to increase his mobility. He is also taking prescribed medication for his dementia.
“We can really see an improvement since he started the treatments and taking the medicine,” Kay said. “He can find his way back to the door when he needs to go out, which is a real improvement, and lets us know when he wants to eat.”
In addition to dental services, vaccines, and illnesses, the resort offers surgical procedures. The resort’s state-of-the-art surgical facility enables the doctors to perform surgeries ranging from spay/neuters to more advanced surgical procedures.
The resort has four convenient locations: Apopka, Carrollwood, St. Petersburg, and Palm Harbor. For more information about additional services offered at the resort, including doggie day care, go to www.royalpetsmarket.com.
