We focus exclusively on emergency treatment and advanced specialty veterinary care. (For annual vaccines and wellness care, please see your primary care veterinarian.)
Each BluePearl pet hospital is unique. Our Tampa location offers these specialties and services provided by skilled, compassionate and dedicated professionals.
If you believe your pet is sick, hurt or in distress, we’re here to provide expert care. Our trained emergency clinicians are prepared to diagnose and treat urgent cases, including severely injured or critically ill pets. Common emergency cases we see include:
Griffindor, or just Griffin as his pet parent Miriam calls him, is one tenacious chewer. Any toy he gets, he wants to also get to what’s on the inside like many dogs also are known to do.
One day, Griffin’s persistent chewing caught up with him and he became sicker and sicker. Miriam suspected it might be related to his little habit, and began looking for a vet that could help him immediately. That’s when she brought Griffin to the emergency and specialty vets at BluePearl in Tampa.
Griffin needed surgery as soon as possible to remove the plastic squeakers he had swallowed that became lodged in his stomach and small intestine. The critical care and surgical team at BluePearl were able to successfully remove the foreign bodies from his GI tract, and Griffin quickly recovered.

Through every step of your pet’s emergency care experience, we keep you and your pet’s primary veterinarian informed and involved.
Our veterinary cardiology team diagnoses and treats diseases of the heart and lungs. We use advanced imaging tools and techniques to identify your pet’s specific condition and develop a treatment plan. Cardiology patients have a variety of treatment options, including minimally invasive procedures.
Your pet’s primary veterinarian may refer you to our cardiology service for:
Critical care patients come to our hospital due to trauma, the development of an acute life-threatening illness or immediately following major surgery. Our critical care service carefully evaluates each patient and creates a custom monitoring plan by measuring variables such as pulse, heart rate, blood pressure and more.
We are prepared to treat many different types of trauma, including:
Our radiology service performs many non-invasive and minimally invasive diagnostic procedures. These services allow the specialty clinicians unique, non-invasive opportunities for evaluating various diseases.
Veterinary internists are trained to take care of patients who can’t tell them what’s wrong. By using the pet’s history, clinical signs, lab results, imaging studies and other testing, our internal medicine specialists can diagnose severe, chronic illnesses or symptoms that appear suddenly.
Our compassionate oncology team offers a variety of treatment options for pets with cancer. Patients benefit from our comprehensive approach to cancer care, which uses advanced combinations of surgical, medical (chemotherapy), immunological and radiation therapy.
From initial diagnosis to ongoing care, we take an integrative approach to treating cancer that includes:
By helping you understand your pet’s disease and by providing appropriate educational tools, we all work together to improve and promote your pet’s best quality of life.
Our neurology team uses advanced imaging technologies, cutting-edge medical therapies and surgical procedures to diagnose and treat patients with neurological disorders that affect the brain, spinal cord and nerves.
Some of the most common neurological disorders we see include:
If your cat is experiencing symptoms including changes in behavior or eating habits, weight loss, fever, rapid heartbeat, changes in litter box habits, shedding or diarrhea, they may have a condition called hyperthyroidism.
Similar to humans, cats have a thyroid gland that regulates their metabolism. If the gland develops a tumor (almost all are non-cancerous), hyperthyroidism can occur. Untreated, this condition can be fatal. Our BluePearl veterinary specialists can diagnose this condition and treat your cat, often with a single injection.
When your pet needs surgery, our veterinary surgery team is ready to provide the best possible care. Our hospital is equipped with advanced tools, technology and monitoring capabilities to provide sophisticated medical care and compassionate service during your pet’s time of need.
