What to Expect from a Pet Exam
A pet exam ensures the health of your pet, providing an opportunity for the vet to offer essential medical services like dental cleaning and vaccinations. It's a crucial step in detecting potential ailments and issues that could lead to more serious health problems down the line. At White Rock Animal Hospital, we extend our pet exam services to pet owners in Lake Highland, Garland, and East Dallas, alongside sick pet care and treatment.
What to Expect at White Rock Animal Hospital
During the pet exam, one of our experienced vets will conduct a comprehensive physical assessment of your pet. This involves checking your pet's weight, teeth, joints, skin, and ears. Additionally, the vet will examine internal organs including the heart, liver, pancreas, intestine, kidneys, and thyroid. We'll also evaluate your pet's breathing and perform a blood test.
You might be requested to bring along a sample of your pet's urine and/or feces for the appointment. Although we can collect these samples at our office if necessary, it's generally less stressful for your pet to provide them at home. Analyzing your pet's urine and feces helps us identify conditions like kidney stones, parasites, or even cancer.
Your Furry Friend Is In Good Hands
The pet exam follows a pattern whether it's a new puppy or kitten or an adult dog or cat. Nevertheless, there are some notable distinctions. We'll provide guidance on puppy care or kitten care, aiding you in providing the right nourishment, shelter, and training for your new companion. We'll discuss options for neutering, administer necessary vaccines, and establish a vaccine and check-up schedule. Moreover, we'll cover what to expect as your puppy or kitten matures, ensuring your pet's healthy development.
Beyond offering advice, the veterinarians at White Rock Animal Hospital are here to address your questions and listen to your concerns. We are dedicated to assisting you in meeting your pet's needs, ensuring their happiness and well-being.
