Some pet owners only take their pet to a vet or animal hospital if there is an emergency, without asking the question, "Is there a vet near me?" The answer is yes. In reality, your pet needs to be seen on a routine basis. Good health is the beginning of great health, wellness, and prevention. Your pet needs to see a vet for a variety of exams, to ensure your pet is developing as it should. This means checking every part of your pet's body, from head to tail. At Summit Veterinary Hospital, we have provided Los Gatos residents with reliable pet care services for many years.
High-Quality Tests and Exams We Perform
Annual Wellness Checkups: During this visit, if your pet is not a patient, we will create a medical file. The file will contain all the tests we take, the results, and the treatment plans. If shots or needed or due, we will give those to your pet at this time. Services we offer include:
- Blood tests
- Parvovirus testing
- Dental examination (treatment if needed)
- Heartworm testing
- Flea dipping treatment, and more
Senior Pet Care
At Summit Veterinary Hospital, we know that older pets need special care as they age. We will follow up on your concerns relating to mood changes, unusual eating habits, or other differences you may notice with your pet. Some of the problems older pets experience are:
- Less energy
- Loss of appetite
- Dim or failing vision
New Puppy or Kitten Checkup and Wellness Exams
Welcoming a new addition to your family and ours is a joy to behold. We want to make sure that your new pet is healthy and thriving. We recommend that you schedule an appointment to bring your new addition(s) to our office for a wellness check, and for shots, and other care that new pets need, as they are starting in life. As a new pet owner, we would like to get you some tips on how to care for your new family addition. Tooth brushing and parasite control and management are of great concern for new pets.
