Routine Check-Ups

Routine check ups at Alpine Veterinary HospitalYour pet benefits greatly from regular wellness examinations. At Alpine Veterinary Hospital, we recommend that all pets receive a comprehensive physical examination at least once a year. One of the most important reasons to bring your pet in on a regular basis is to monitor and treat conditions before they become untreatable. Since pets can't vocalize how they are feeling, illness or disease may be present before you are aware of symptoms. The benefit of early detection allows time for steps to be taken to manage or correct a problem before irreversible damage occurs. Because our pets age so much faster than we do, regular wellness exams are one of the best ways that you can help your pet live a long, healthy life. Regular exams allow us to detect symptoms of disease and illness in your pet and treat them before your pet's quality of life is affected. Our preventative care includes:

  • Annual wellness examinations and laboratory screening
  • Senior and geriatric wellness examinations and laboratory screening
  • Immunizations: vaccination and disease prevention recommendations have changed significantly over the last few years. Our doctors will work with you to help decide what's right for your pets lifestyle
  • Dental Care
  • Nutrition and diet
  • Behavioral counseling
  • Parasite control
  • Disease prevention
