We at Lakewood Pet Vet in Lakewood, CA, provide a variety of pet care services to help meet our patient’s needs and concerns. Here are some of the services that we offer.
Urgent Care for Pets
Suppose your pet is experiencing an illness or injury you need help for quickly. In that case, it may be necessary to take them to our local animal hospital for a veterinarian on our team that offers urgent care for pets.
Our urgent care facilities for pets are designed specifically for pets and offer treatment for illnesses and injuries ranging from acute medication needs to injuries. In addition, we have specialists available who can help with more severe issues as well.
Pet Wellness Exams
A pet wellness exam is a physical examination typically conducted on dogs and cats six months or older. The exam might be called a puppy or kitten exam if the pet is younger. This exam aims to identify health problems that may require treatment, including pet surgery, early, so they can be treated before they become more serious.
During the exam, a veterinarian on our team may look for signs of inflammation or infection, assess the pet's dental health, discuss diet and nutrition with you if appropriate, perform a CBC (complete blood count) test to look for evidence of disease, or measure weight and height.
A veterinarian on our team might also examine eyesight status, palpate the abdomen for masses or lesions suggestive of cancerous growths or other diseases and assess neurologic function by testing reflexes and nerve conduction velocities.
Our pet hospital, with the help of a veterinarian on our team, might query about allergies and sensitivities present in your pet's environment or body chemistry. We might seek to administer urine analysis panels as necessary. This examination allows a veterinarian on our team to rule out many potential health concerns early on-saving both you and your pet much stress and anxiety down the road.
What Do Pet Wellness Exams Include?
We at Lakewood Pet Vet offer pet health services for pet wellness exams that may include physical examinations, environmental assessments, and medication histories.
Wellness exams help identify early signs of illness or injury in your pet so that treatment can be started promptly. During the physical examination, a veterinarian on our team might take blood samples and measure vital signs such as heart rate and temperature.
