Frequently Asked Questions – Gulfport Veterinarian
1. Hey, Gulfport Veterinarian, sometimes when I call I can’t get through quickly or I have to wait in the waiting room. Why is that?
Well, we try our best, but we are a very popular and busy animal hospital in the Gulfport-St. Petersburg area. First we really work hard at trying to provide the best and latest professional veterinary pet healthcare ,that we can, and still make it as affordable, to serve the residents in Gulfport and St. Petersbrug.
We also employ some of the latest veterinary medical technology such as Digital Radiology, complete In-House Laboratory services and Cold Laser Therapy. Obtaining this technology is expensive to buy and also to maintain. Now, we could raise our fees, but this would make it harder on many of our clients. So we had to make a choice to raise fees, which would decrease the number of clients or did we want to be able to help as many people as possible. We decided on the latter, to serve the community. So, yes we are busy and sometimes our clients have to wait, but we would rather serve the community, than force others to have forgo caring for their pets. We want to be the St. Petersburg animal hospital that places the well-being of our pets above pure financial gain.
