At Clermont Animal Hospital, our goal has been to assemble a veterinary health care team committed to providing exceptional client service and veterinary health care. Our commitment to you is to continue to offer our world class service and a state of the art veterinary facility.
Your pet's annual vet check-up will include a total physical exam, possible tests such as fecal exam, and blood parasite screen (heartworm plus other tickborn diseases). If anything unusual is found during the exam, the Dr. may order other tests or proceedures. We always give estimates for services beforehand. Along with your exam, the technicians will be happy to perform complimentary nail trims as well.
Because even the most cooperative pet may not readily go-along with a tooth and gum brushing, an annual dental cleaning maybe in order. Like you, your pet can lose his teeth due to decay and neglect. Because of the general risks inherent to anesthesia, especially for very old, very young or very ill dogs, your veterinarian will likely suggest a few exams, such as lab work of blood and urine, before your pet is anesthetized. During the procedure he might need an IV drip; antibiotics may be necessary before and after.
Your veterinarian may refer you to a specialist, veterinarians who have completed advanced studies in specialties such as internal medicine, surgery, and emergency care, if your dog must undergo a procedure that requires more precise knowledge and experience.
