Pets age much faster than humans which means they need to be examined twice a year. This allows us to detect disease early and start treatment right away. The veterinarians at Oakcrest Pet Hospital provide routine wellness exams and exams for sick pets. An exam consists of a thorough evaluation of your pet's eyes, ears, mouth, heart, lungs, abdominal organs, skin, and skeletal system. The doctor will ask you if you have any health concerns for your pet and discuss the exam findings.
Please bring any pertinent medical history of your pet when you come to your appointment. It's best to keep records of your pet's health throughout his or her life and let the doctor know when you have observed changes. Please tell the veterinary technician or doctor about any medications your pet is receiving, including heartworm prevention, flea/tick prevention, and supplements. If you need an estimate for recommended care or surgical procedures, do not hesitate to ask. In some circumstances, the doctor may refer you to a specialist who can perform additional diagnostics and has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine and surgery. Our staff can make arrangements for your pet to see the specialist and provide any necessary care afterwards.
