The best care you can give your pet includes regular veterinary examinations. A complete physical exam by your veterinarian may find potentially serious conditions before they even affect your pet. A typical examination evaluates your pet’s teeth, ears, eyes, heart and lungs, abdominal organs, and lymph nodes. These examinations are needed more frequently for puppies and kittens as well as for senior pets. For older pets, periodic laboratory testing is an invaluable part of health monitoring. Diabetes, early kidney problems, low grade infections, and many cancers can often be found through laboratory testing.
Hypertension is now considered a significant health concern for pets. As a result, evaluating a pet’s blood pressure has become a standard part of the middle aged and older pet’s exam at Verona Animal Hospital.
Also, we welcome pet owners who would like a second opinion of their pet’s diagnosis or condition to visit our hospital, and we will gladly address any concerns about the pet’s current treatment and care.
