Wellness Exams and Preventative Care

No need to worry. We have you covered.

Your pet’s health is important to us. Las Tablas Animal Hospital recommends annual wellness exams to ensure that your animal companion remains in good health. Recommended frequency of exams will depend on your pet’s age and general health status. These exams also allow us to check on crucial health concerns so we can continue to help you manage them properly. Routine exams keep your pet happy and healthy!

Preventative care is a top priority at Las Tablas Animal Hospital. We want to make sure your pet receives the best care at our hospital and at your home, so during your visits, your veterinarian will talk with you about the best food options for your pet’s breed and lifestyle, provide tips on how you can avoid common household hazards, suggest simple ways to keep your pet’s teeth clean and breath fresh, recommend vaccinations and provide more tips for at-home care. At Las Tablas Animal Hospital, we pride ourselves on being an important resource and helping you raise and care for your household pet.

We want to be there for you and your pet through the years. Essentially, there are three stages in each pet’s life: the kitten or puppy years, the adult years and the senior years. As your pet grows in and out of each stage, your Las Tablas Animal Hospital veterinarian will guide you on pet care to ensure the ideal health of your pet.

We will monitor your pet’s development at every visit. Las Tablas Animal Hospital’s veterinarian-performed physical exams comprehensively assess every aspect of your pet’s health. Wellness exams typically include:

  • Ear exam
  • Eye exam
  • Dental exam
  • Skeletal exam
  • Reproductive system exam
  • Internal health evaluation

Integrative Therapies

At Las Tablas Animal Hospital we are dedicated to keeping your pet healthy and working together with you and trusted veterinary partners to maintain the health and longevity of your pet. We believe that many pets may benefit from integrative or alternative therapies when combined with western veterinary medicine. Our experienced medical staff works closely with well-respected colleagues to refer our patients to local providers for services such as laser therapy, acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, rehabilitation services and more.
