Professional Veterinary Exams in Arlington
Checking Up on Your Pet’s Health
An important part of maintaining your pet’s health and enhancing
their quality of life is making sure your pet sees their veterinarian
regularly. At Arlington Pet Care Hospital, we understand that visits to
the doctor can be scary or uncomfortable for you pets. We strive to make
their visit as comfortable and stress-free as possible. We treat your
pets as we would treat our own furry family members.
Regular checkups are an essential component of preventative medicine. We
strongly believe that seeing your pet regularly will allow us to know
what is normal for their health and thus we will be able to identify any
deviations. This allows us to intervene early before any health irregularities
become larger issues. We recommend that most pets come see our Arlington
veterinarians at least every six months, though we may recommend more
frequent visits depending on your pet’s specific health needs.

Physical Exams at Arlington Pet Care Hospital
Wellness exams at our veterinary hospital look very similar to the annual
physical exams we humans receive from our doctors. Our Arlington veterinary
team will perform a visual exam of your pet from nose to tail, and everything
in between. This comprehensive look is helpful for spotting any obvious
health issues, as well as observing your pet’s general mood and behavior.
We’ll ask you a variety of questions about your pet’s recent
health and behavior, and whether you’ve noticed any changes in their
We may also ask you questions about your pet’s:
- Activity level
- Bowel movements
If you’re a new patient, in addition to the topics we’ve covered
above, we may also ask you about your pet’s medical history and
whether they have any existing health conditions which we should know
about. We ask these questions in order to get a clear picture of your
pet’s health from the person who knows your pet best – you.
During your pet’s physical exam, we may also order
laboratory tests for your pet. These tests, like blood work or urinalysis, tell us what’s
going on beyond your pet’s fur or feathers and can help us complete
the picture of your pet’s overall health. These tests will also
help us understand what diseases your pet might be predisposed to as well
as monitor existing health conditions.
Based on all of the information we collect during your pet’s physical
exam, we’ll be able to make tailored recommendations for your pet’s
ongoing healthcare. We’ll equip you with the knowledge you need
to give your pet the happiest, healthiest life possible.
