Pet Check-Ups

Our comprehensive pet check-up services are designed to detect any underlying health issues, provide preventive care, and address any concerns you may have as a pet owner.

During a pet check-up, our experienced veterinarians will thoroughly examine your pet from nose to tail. We carefully assess their physical condition, including their coat, skin, eyes, ears, teeth, and overall body condition. We also listen to their heart and lungs, palpate their abdomen, and check for any abnormalities or signs of discomfort.

We understand that each pet is unique, so we take the time to listen to your concerns and gather a comprehensive medical history. We value your input as a pet owner and appreciate any observations or changes you may have noticed in your pet’s behavior, appetite, or activity levels.

In addition to the physical examination, our veterinary team may recommend diagnostic tests to assess your pet’s internal health. These tests can include blood work, urine analysis, fecal examination, or specific screenings based on your pet’s age, breed, or medical history. These tests provide valuable insights into your pet’s organ function and can be used to detect early signs of diseases and help guide preventive care measures.

At Hillside Veterinary Associates, we believe preventive care is the cornerstone of your pet’s health. During the check-up, our veterinarians will discuss and administer appropriate vaccinations based on your pet’s lifestyle, age, and risk factors. We will also provide guidance on parasite prevention, such as flea and tick control, heartworm prevention, and deworming protocols.

We value the opportunity to educate pet owners about nutrition, exercise, and behavior, as these factors are vital in maintaining your pet’s overall health throughout their lifetime.
