About Us

"emergency home vets broward"

Dr. Cecilia Magalhaes offers at-home veterinarian services in the convenience of your own home for dogs and cats in Greater South Florida. Traveling by car may not be an easy feat for both you and your pet — that’s where Vet Home Express can help! Less stress for you, less anxiety for your beloved pet — and state-of-the art PERSONALIZED care for your pet in his/her natural environment. Your cat/dog will benefit from undivided attention (with NO other patients waiting in the next room)!

My scope of practice includes:

Puppy/Kitten Care (Newborn pup to 12 months old)

From the moment they are born, puppies/kittens begin to develop and change (and will surely delight you!) which characterizes the first 12 months. You will be amazed at how quickly your puppy/kitten will grow and mature. At-home vet care for your pet includes:

  • vaccinations
  • deworming
  • teething care (as well as advice and guidance)
  • nutrition care (as well as advice and guidance)
  • puppy proofing and more …

Adult Dog/Cat Care (1-7 years Old)

Although sexual maturity usually occurs between 6 to 14 months of age in most pets, full growth and mental maturity may take much longer.  The best way to keep your pet healthy and living longer is to provide a well-balanced diet and plenty of exercise, but also good preventative health care. My at-home vet care services start from annual exams and span all the way to emergency visits. Please see the complete list of vet care services here.

Senior Dog/Cat Care (8 years and older)

For the healthy senior pet (depends largely on preventative vet and home care) the twilight years may be simply a case of slowing down slightly. Most older pets still enjoy going out for walks, playing and interacting with family members. They may sleep longer and more deeply than previously and urinate more frequently, but generally continued preventative vet care will keep them healthy and happy for years to come. Focused customized care for senior pets includes:

  • arthritis and joint stiffness care
  • spinal stiffness care
  • weight management
  • geriatric supportive care
