Your choice of a veterinarian is an important one. As a responsible pet owner, you should expect a range of veterinary care services, and professionals who understand your pet is a member of your family. At Veteran’s Memorial Drive Animal Hospital, you can be assured of a clean, state-of-the-art facility that can deliver the highest quality of care for your cherished pet.
During your first visit to a Houston animal clinic, your pet will be weighed and examined from head to tail. Your Houston veterinarian will check eyes, ears, teeth, throat, coat and skin. The vet will also feel the animal’s limbs and abdomen to detect any abnormalities or problems. If you have veterinary records, bring them with you, so the vet can get a full picture of the animal’s condition. The vet will ask questions about what your pet eats, the amount of exercise he or she gets and other questions about habits and behavior. You will receive information about vaccination, parasite prevention and other matters that help to ensure your pet’s continued health.
Your initial visit to your Houston animal hospital is a good time to get to know the veterinarian and to discuss any concerns you have, such as feeding problems, behavioral issues or questions about preventive care. Your veterinarian’s years of experience can help you to provide optimum care for your pet.
If your pet has an ongoing health problem, the vet may wish to do blood tests or other diagnostic procedures in order to provide proper treatment. The veterinarian can provide you with information about holistic care and alternative methods that may be of benefit to your pet’s health. If necessary, we can refer you a specialist for your pet’s care and will work closely with them to keep your pet healthy and functioning well.
