Meet Dr. Cecilia Magalhaes

Dr. Cecilia Magalhaes has been practicing veterinary medicine since 1980. Over the years Dr. C has noticed that the pets traveling to her practice arrived distressed and anxious, sometimes making the visit more upsetting for both the owner and the pet/s.  And so for the past few years Dr. C created Vet Home Express (serving Greater South Florida) offering state-of-the-art PERSONALIZED at-home veterinarian services in the comfort of the pets’ home.  The result — no more vomit, bathroom accidents, or hair all over your car. Less stress for you, and less anxiety for your beloved pet! 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 house 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
