What to Expect
Preventative health care is an important part of your animal's good health. Once a year, you should take your pet in for a check-up. This will include a full physical exam, and may include vaccinations and blood work if needed. The doctors here will check the health of your pet from head to tail!
Your pet's first visit as a puppy or kitten includes a physical exam, parasite control, and vaccinations. We include advice about house training, obedience training, and nutritional recommendations.
Geriatric care involves regularly scheduled physical examinations and may include blood chemistries, radiographs, and other tests to aid in early disease recognition. This enables us to institute treatment if required, in order to provide a more comfortable life for the elderly pet.
Bring in any medical history you have of your pet when you come to our vet clinic. It's best to keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts. If you have something like this, please share it with our team. If not, let us know everything that you think will be important. The doctors will work with whatever information you have.
In some special circumstances, your veterinarian may refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine or surgery.
