One part of caring for a dog or cat is getting them a routine exam to ensure they are in the best of health. We at Oak Grove Veterinary Hospital in San Jose, CA, can provide veterinary care including heartworm testing, flea and tick prevention, vaccinations, and dental services. A “veterinarian near me” is here to help.
Your Pet's Information Is Collected
If you have never brought your pet to our business in the past, you need to fill out some documentation regarding their medical history for our veterinarian to refer to. Your dog or cat's weight and other measurements might be then taken and documented. This information is useful as it provides a point in history to use at future appointments to determine if your pet is eating enough, too much, or dealing with an illness.
Your Pet Is Evaluated in Detail
When it is time for your dog or cat to see our veterinarian, they will be brought into a private examination room for their assessment. If your pet has difficulty around people, let our staff know, so we can be extra careful as they manipulate your pet's body to check for issues. A vet on our veterinary team will check your pet's eyes, ears, nose, mouth, paws, stomach, and other areas of the body in detail for signs of problematic symptoms. If an issue is found, recommendations can be made regarding the proper treatment.
Preventative Actions Are Taken
Your pet will be provided vaccinations at particular times during their life. If it is time for a vaccine, a vet on our veterinary team will administer it during a well-visit. You will be given signs of side effects to watch out for during this time. We may also provide prevention medication for flea and tick problems, as well as medication to thwart heartworm.
