Bringing your pet to our hospital at least once a year for a physical examination can aid in the early detection of serious illnesses. During a physical exam with Dr. Vineyard, your pet is assessed from the tip of their nose to the tip of their tail. Dr. Vineyard believes that educating each client on their pet’s health is the foundation of the client/doctor relationship. Each examination is scheduled so Dr. Vineyard has the appropriate time to communicate to each pet owner exactly what their pet needs to stay healthy. Evaluating the ears, eyes, mouth, coat, body condition and listening to your pet’s heart and lungs are just a few key points of the physical exam.
