Pet’s Annual Vet Checkup
At Orchard Hills Animal Hospital, your pet’s annual vet check-up starts with a complete physical exam, which includes a thorough investigation of your pet’s head, body, limbs and tail, and all his or her assorted cavities. Based on the exam findings and the history you provide, you and the doctor will decide on a course of action for your pet. Sometimes the visit is as simple as performing a routine fecal exam and catching him up on his vaccines. Sometimes more extensive work is needed, like x-rays, labwork, or an ultrasound. A procedure like a dental cleaning or a surgery may need to be scheduled. Your veterinarian will take the time to explain everything he or she has discovered during your pet’s physical exam, will educate you about it, and will help you make an informed decision that you are comfortable with.
The veterinarians at Orchard Hills Animal Hospital have an excellent network of specialists in the Portland and Vancouver area who we can refer you to. In the event your pet needs more specialized care than we can provide, we can readily refer you to specialists in animal cardiology, ophthalmology, cancer, internal medicine, surgery, critical care, neurology and more!
