Our Wide Offerings of Pet Care Services

At Union Avenue Veterinary Hospital, we have the know-how and equipment to keep pets healthy with comprehensive preventive care, fast and accurate diagnostic and routine surgery, and emergency procedures. We’ll discuss our most requested services here.

Wellness Exams and Preventive Care

The first and most important step in taking good care of your pets is to schedule routine wellness exams. This allows our vet to fully assess their current state of health and administer any treatments they might need. We will give them a full physical exam where the veterinarian looks through their fur to detect parasites and any abrasions or scaly patches on the skin. The inspection allows us to see if there are any indications of abnormal growths, areas of discomfort or pain, and any deformities or mobility issues.

During the visit, we’ll ask you questions about any changes in behavior, their eating habits, sleep changes, or differences in their routine activity levels. This lets you tell us about anything that might be causing you concerns. If your pet is due for any vaccinations or needs pest control treatment, your animal will receive them at this time.
