Animal Hospital of Tampa Inc, in Tampa, Florida, provides pet microchips, baths, dips, prescriptions, and a helpful list of recommended products.
We encourage owners to take advantage of microchips for all pets. This safe, non-removable microchip is as easy as a simple appointment and takes only a few minutes. We recommend the Avid Microchip™ for permanent identification of your pet, in case they are ever separated from you. It is also highly recommended for recovery, in case of hurricanes, weather disasters, lost pets, disputed ownership, collar removal, or other unexpected problems.
Baths & Dips
These are given the day your pet leaves our kennel, after morning appointments or medical procedures, to ensure that they come home clean, as well as, free of fleas or ticks.
You may call ahead for your pet's prescription refills, so they are ready for pickup without the wait. Home delivery is available for heartworm preventive, flea and tick products, in addition to, many other products.
By calling us, you can save a trip to the clinic, and your order will be delivered directly from us to your door.
A list of recommended products is available for your convenience. We have confidence in these products and they have been used previously with success many times before.
Advantage™ Multi-Topical Solution, with Imidacloprid and Moxidectin, is administered monthly to your pet's skin.

This medicine kills adult fleas, controls flea infestations, while treating hookworms, whipworms, and roundworms. It also prevents Heartworm disease, scabies, and ear mites in cats.
Comfortis™ is an oral pill given monthly to kill adult fleas, which starts working within 30 minutes and is 100% effective within 4 hours. There are 5 sizes available for dogs, including chewable. It is recommended on a full stomach and is only available through veterinarians. A Presidential GREEN Chemistry Challenge award was given to Comfortis in 1999 from the US Environmental Protection Agency.
Trifexis™ is a heartworm protection, which is an oral chewable tablet made by the manufacturer of Comfortis, consisting of Spinosad, Milbemycin Oxime. It is used for prevention of heartworms, control of intestinal worms, and to kill fleas.
Occasionally, we have puppies or kittens available for adoption, but this is not a common practice of ours.

Please note that we do not screen postings, nor take responsibility for any actions regarding these postings.
