South Tampa Veterinary Care (STVC) is now fully open with mask-optional in the building. However, we have left several COVID policies in place.
For appointments and weight checks, please call in to be escorted by a technician directly into an exam room or the scale.
For bordetella (kennel cough) vaccines and Cytopoint injections, please call in and give your parking spot number. A technician will administer the medications in your car or in the hospital depending on your pet’s disposition.
For food and medication pick up, please call in and give your parking spot number and a staff member will bring them out to your car.
As a reminder, retractable leashes are not allowed in the clinic for the safety of your pets. We look forward to seeing you. - STVC
