In recognition of National Homeless Animal Month, Sandy Paws Veterinary Clinic is offering free veterinary exams to adopted pets. During the month of August, adopters can bring their pet's adoption records for a free veterinary exam. This offer is limited to one free exam per household,  adopted within the last six months.

"Adopting a pet is a life-long commitment," said Dr. John P. Mead, Owner/Veterinarian, Sandy Paws Veterinary Clinic. "It is essential that our pets have yearly preventative care to maintain a long, healthy life with their adopted families," said Mead.

Over the past decade, Dr. Mead has cared for homeless and adopted pets as the Chief Veterinarian at the SPCA Tampa Bay and Pet Pal Animal Shelter & Clinic. He has performed more than 20,000 spay and neuter surgeries, countless wellness visits and emergency surgeries.
