General Wellness & Check-Ups
The time we have with our pets is precious. From the moment we bring them home with us to when they’ve become our best friends, they bring joy, comfort, and companionship to our lives. That’s why we promote regular wellness checks to ensure we are able to understand the unique needs of your pet. We know each pet’s health journey can vary depending on the age, lifestyle, breed, and other factors that we consider each and every time we see your beloved animal.
At Oak Forest Veterinary Hospital, we understand that this form of preventative care is one of the most important ways to keep your pet from developing serious conditions, including dental disease, heartworms, arthritis, diabetes and more.
Following is some of what is included in regular wellness checks during different stages of your pet's life.
- Prescription Diet Food — Our veterinary staff will help you decide if your cat or dog needs a special diet to improve his or her immediate and long-term well-being.
- Behavioral Assessment — If your pet is having behavioral issues, our veterinary staff can provide a basic consultation and an appropriate referral you’ll need to take the next step to a happier home.
- Routine Veterinary Checkups — Your pet’s vaccinations and boosters are one factor in maintaining good pet health. But prevention of disease and other conditions requires some hands-on assessment, too. Our veterinarians will work with you and your pet to make sure he or she has a clean bill of health.
- Senior Pet Health Care — As cats and dogs reach the seventh year of age, special attention should be paid to them. They likely have several years of life ahead of them, and we help you improve their quality of life during those years with veterinary services such as routine physical exams and blood work analysis.
Our animal clinic is proud to serve the pet owners of Houston, TX and the surrounding communities of Oak Forest, Timbergrove, Lazybrook, Greater Heights, Garden Oaks, Spring Branch, and beyond.
