October – Animal Safety & Protection This month (and every month) is a time to recognize safety measures you should take to protect your pet and ensure they are healthy. Check out the below safety tips:
- Be proactive. Keep all your pets up to date on immunizations.
- Pet-proof your home. Remove or secure choking hazards and toxic chemicals. Make your home pet-friendly and safe.
- Identify your animals. Place tags securely on collars and even label collars with your contact information. If you have more uncommon pets, take pictures in the event they get loose.
- In a disaster, have a plan. Who will be responsible for locating each animal in the house? How will you transport them? If it is a fire, human life takes priority. However, place decals on windows and doors with the number of humans and each kind and number of pets residing in the home. Keep them up to date.
- Learn basic first aid. Caring for your animal at home will prevent a minor injury from becoming severe. Always call your veterinarian if you are unsure.
- Know your animal. If your animal’s behavior changes, watch for signs of illness. Is he injured or spent too much time in the heat? Contact your veterinarian before giving human over-the-counter medications.

Dental CareDespite what many pet owners may believe, “dog breath” is not just a nuisance – it’s a sign of an unhealthy mouth. Bad breath is caused by bacteria. Over time, bacteria leads to plaque and tartar buildup on your pet’s teeth. The result is bad breath, reddened gums, and other common signs of dental disease....
Birds and Small AnimalsRabbits, guinea pigs, birds/avian, and other small mammals have become popular pets as increasing numbers of pet owners come to understand the unique bond that can form with one of these special creatures. But did you know that small mammals need some of the same routine wellness care that dogs and cats need? Do you...
Years in Existence
Our Clients Love Us!
We took our 12 YO girl here for the first time and I only wish we had taken her here sooner! The entire staff was welcoming and took great care of our pup! We are switching to Sorrento today!!
We are so pleased that Sorrento Animal Hospital is now seeing birds! Our parakeet, Polly, had been a client of Dr. De Rose when he was at Greenway. We had heard that when he moved to Sorrento that unfortunately, the practice may not see birds. Fortunately, that was not the case and, when scheduled on certain days of the week, Dr. De Rose can once again see our avian friends! Dr. De Rose is extremely patient and kind with our bird. He has known her for a few years and always is thorough and exacting during our visits. We like how he tends toward the conservative side, outlining all possibilities of what can be going on with your pet. He discusses tests that can be run and always gives a clear run-down of procedures and costs.He readily listens to pet owners about their bird's behaviors and works toward a common goal: keeping our pets happy and healthy. The practice is very efficient. I loved how we could make an appointment by phone or online (through their Facebook page or website address. Staff promptly returned my request for an appointment. FYI, there are the cutest "reception" cats at the front desk. They are very docile, but if you are concerned about your bird, make sure to bring your bird in sturdy carrying cage and maybe consider a cloth covering so your bird doesn't react. Our bird was fine, but some birds may be sensitive 🙂
