  • Take Your Cat To The Vet Day

    August 17, 2016
    August 22nd is National Take Your Cat To The Vet Day! Here are the top 5 reasons routine vet visits are a vital part for your cat to live a long, healthy life. Cats age more rapidly than humans 
A cat reaches approximate human age of 15 during its first year, and then 24 at age 2. Each year thereafter, they age approximately four “cat years” for every calendar year. So an 8-year-old cat would be 48 in cat years. Veterinary care is crucial because a lot can happen in those four “cat years,” which is why yearly visits are so important. Cats are masters at hiding illness
 Cat’s natural behaviors make them excellent at hiding how they feel when they are sick or in pain. Your cat could be developing a health condition long before you notice anything is wrong. Veterinarians are trained to spot changes or abnormalities that...

  • Immunization Awareness

    August 8, 2016
    Proper and timely immunizations are extremely important to the well-being of your pet. Vaccines, given at the proper time, will help strengthen your pet’s immune system to fight off deadly diseases. So what exactly are vaccines and why should my pet get them? Vaccines help prepare the body’s immune system to fight the invasion of disease-causing organisms. Vaccines contain antigens, which look like the disease-causing organism to the immune system but don’t actually cause disease. When the vaccine is introduced to the body, the immune system is mildly stimulated. If your dog or cat is ever exposed to the real disease, his immune system is now prepared to recognize and fight it off entirely or reduce the severity of the illness. Essential Vaccinations for Your Dog Distemper, Hepatitis, Parainfluenza and Parvovirus (DHPP): Commonly called the “distemper shot,” this combination vaccine actually protects against all four diseases. Rabies: Rabies virus is...

  • The Importance of Regular Teeth Cleaning

    July 29, 2016
    Most dog and cat owners never take a good look inside their pet’s mouth. That’s unfortunate because many pets show signs of gum disease by the time they are four years old and it’s because they weren’t given proper mouth care. Exam your dog’s mouth regularly to prevent future periodontal diseases and keep his smile dazzling with a mouthful of pearly whites. What to look for when checking your pet’s mouth: Malodorous (bad) breath – Normal dog breath doesn’t smell like lavender and rose petals but if his breath is extremely offensive and is accompanied by loss of appetite, vomiting, excessive drinking or urinating, it’s a good idea to take them to the vet. Healthy gums – Don’t forget to check their gums! Healthy gums should be pink, not red or white, and should show no signs of swelling. Signs of Oral Disease – Some additional symptoms of more serious...

  • AAHA ACCREDITED HOSPITAL DAY

    July 22, 2016
    Today is the first annual AAHA-Accredited Hospital Day and South Bay Veterinary Hospital is honored to be able to participate in the celebrations! The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) has designated this day as an opportunity to educate pet owners about what accreditation means for their pets and to thank accredited hospitals for holding themselves to a higher standard. AAHA-Accredited Hospital Day will be held each year to celebrate champions for excellent veterinary care. The mission of AAHA-Accredited Hospital Day is to highlight the exceptional care provided by AAHA-accredited hospitals and to educate pet owners about the value of accreditation. Only 12–15 percent of veterinary hospitals in the United States and Canada are AAHA-accredited and we are so fortunate to be in that top percentage of hospitals that can say they hold such an accreditation. AAHA-accredited veterinary hospitals are home to leading pet health care teams. AAHA has been recognizing...

  • The Importance of Microchipping Your Pet

    June 14, 2016
    Losing your pet can be a traumatic and even tragic event. Conscientious pet guardians protect their pets with collars and ID tags. Unfortunately, collars and ID tags are not foolproof and dogs and cats can still get lost. Collars can break or fall-off, leaving your beloved pet among the countless, unidentified lost strays at animal shelters.  This can easily be avoided if pet owners took the time to get their pets microchipped. What are microchips? Microchips are implantable computer chips that encode a unique identification number to help reunite you with your lost pet. They are no bigger than a grain of rice and they are placed under your pet’s skin with a needle and syringe, not much differently than a routine vaccinations. Unlike collars and ID tags, they can never break or fall-off. They work by receiving a radio signal from a scanner and transmitting the encoded chip identification...

I have been bringing my pets to South Bay Veterinary Hospital for 11 years. It would take a long time to tell you just how much I admire and appreciate everything that Dr. Deo and his wonderful staff have done for me and my pets. When I lost two of my kitties to heart failure and one to cancer, the compassion from Dr. Deo and Gina is what helped me get through the terrible loss. This Hospital cares a great deal about animals and their welfare and I have complete confidence in the staff and the veterinarians there.

We have 4 cats, 1 with special needs as he is a diabetic. I wouldn’t even consider taking my babies to anyone other than SB Vet Hospital. Dr. Rozsa is truly the “Cat Whisperer.” Her compassion and knowledge are like none I’ve ever seen before and I’ve had pets my entire life.
