Essential Care for Every Age

Throughout your pet’s life, their needs will change and we’re here to provide high quality age-specific care to keep your dog or cat comfortable. Preventative care should begin when your puppy or kitten is between six and eight weeks old with vaccinations, intestinal parasite screenings and prophylactic dewormings in addition to a complete physical exam. This will continue as your pet grows older, even into their senior years, to ensure optimal health.

Maintaining Your Pet’s Wellness

During your pet’s wellness exam, the team at South County Animal Hospital will perform a thorough physical exam as well as additional wellness services including:

A crucial part of our wellness care at South County Animal Hospital is the physical exam. Your veterinarian will perform a nose-to-tail exam of your pet to assess their health including:

  • Eyes
  • Ears
  • Nose
  • Teeth and gum color
  • Heart and pulse
  • Abdominal palpation
  • Body condition
  • Weight
  • Lymph nodes

We always strive to keep you up to date on what’s going on with your companion’s care and provide explanations for our recommendations so you can make the best possible decision for your pet’s health. Our team will always allot time to discuss any questions or concerns you may have and address them accordingly.

Despite the physical exam being integral to our wellness care, sometimes it may be insufficient to provide answers about your pet’s condition, so your veterinarian may recommend annual lab testing including blood and urinalysis. This testing checks for potential diseases, such as kidney or liver disease, which don’t usually present outward symptoms until the disease is far progressed. The earlier a problem is detected, the sooner your dog or cat can receive treatment.

The team at South County Animal Hospital provides a variety of cutting-edge diagnostic and treatment modalities, including cardiac diagnostic ultrasound. Our team can also confer with  several board-certified specialists to ensure the accuracy and effectiveness of treatment. Internal medicine refers to diagnosing and treating disease inside your pet’s body such as:

  • Pancreatitis
  • Kidney/Urinary disease
  • Internal infections
  • Cancer
  • Diseases of the liver, gallbladder, endocrine system (e.g., diabetes, adrenal, thyroid, etc.) and heart disease
