Offering affordable, comprehensive care for your furry family member.
SPCA Florida’s McClurg Animal Medical Center evolved from a high volume spay/neuter and wellness clinic into one of Polk County’s largest veterinary hospitals with seven full-time veterinarians, more than 30 veterinary support staff members. From our highly skilled surgery prep and recovery team members to our inpatient hospital technicians who handle emergency cases during business hours. Whether your pet needs routine heartworm testing and vaccines or specialty surgery, SPCA Florida’s Animal Medical Center team is dedicating to providing your cats and dogs with professional care necessary to keep them healthy and happy.
Proceeds from the Medical Center help pets of those less fortunate as well as our community’s homeless cats and dogs served through our Adoption Center. Each month SPCA Florida invests approximately $12,000 to restore the health of owned animals whose guardians cannot afford full treatment costs or to rehabilitate and treat homeless pets or transferred animals from partner Polk County Animal Control.
Wellness Packages Features Annual Testing and Vaccines
Preventative care is critical to your pet’s health. You will protect your pet and save money by ensuring your cat or dog is examined by the veterinarian regularly, vaccinated annually, and undergoes yearly testing for potentially fatal diseases like heartworms and feline leukemia/FIV. Dogs and cats are just like humans — they need vaccinations to stay healthy and to keep potentially deadly diseases away. They also need boosters to keep the vaccines effective.
Many vaccines can be given to pets as young as 6 weeks old, so talk to one of our veterinarians about setting up the best vaccination schedule for your cat or dog, kitten or puppy. More information about age appropriate vaccines and what they protect against, can be found by visiting our vaccination page.
Routine and Advanced Surgical Procedures
Spay/neuter surgery is core to SPCA Florida’s mission to humanely address pet overpopulation. That’s why we offer affordable fees and encourage pet owners to spay or neuter their pets when they are nine weeks old or three pounds. We also offer a Community Cat Program, which provides a reduced cost for the public and humane trappers to bring in free-roaming, un-owned felines, sometimes known as feral cats, in humane traps to receive pain medication, spay or neuter surgery, ear tipped (universal sign on sterilization), and a rabies vaccine. Visit the link above or call (863) 646-7722 for more details about that program.
SPCA Florida’s surgery team also performs advanced surgical procedurs including, but not limited to exploratory, femoral head ostectomy (FHO) and other orthopedic operations, eye enucleation, intestinal repairs, mass removal, lifesaving leg amputations, and much more. Additionally, SPCA Florida handles emergency surgery during business hours, providing an affordable alternative to other private veterinary clinics. Given SPCA Florida frequently serves cats and dogs whose medical history is unknown or pets whose owners cannot afford extensive diagnostic testing, the organization’s high quality surgery monitoring equipment is critical and helps to keep your pets safe during surgery.

Pet Dental Cleanings and Extractions
Like humans, dogs and cats have plaque and tartar buildup that can be ingested, enter the bloodstream and damage organs. These ongoing health issues can be very costly and sometimes even fatal so preventative care is critical. Four out of five dogs over 3-years-old have periodontal disease. If your pet is losing teeth, drooling or dropping food, experiencing oral bleeding, loss of appetite or shies away from you touching the mouth area, he or she may have periodontal disease.Healthy teeth equal better breath and most of our furry companions could definitely use a breath freshener, so book your pet’s dental consultation appointment today, (863) 646-7722 or [email protected].
