We know that by diagnosing a problem early we can often save the pet pain and suffering as well as reduce long term treatment expenses later. Bringing your pet to Green Valley Animal Hospital for physical examinations, is crucial to his or her health. We offer thorough physical examinations so that we can detect any potential problems ahead of time.

Our approach to wellness:

  • Bi-annual yearly physical exams *(While physical exams are critical to animal health, you can help too. If you notice any irregularities with your pet, take detailed notes and bring them in with your pet for an examination).
  • Regular examinations of stool for intestinal parasites.
  • Yearly laboratory blood work *to spot trends and changes in organ function

What exactly does a physical exam include? Some things you can’t see, feel, touch, or hear without special tests and equipment but, many times you can gain a lot of information about your pet through simple observation. In a physical exam, your veterinarian looks for anything abnormal. Every pet is a little bit different, just like every human is different. Once your veterinarian does the general physical exam, any areas of concern will be given more attention.

While Preventative healthcare for our pets is essential to their longevity, we understand that pet owners may worry about how to pay for it. Our doctors and staff do ask that payments are rendered at the time of service. Although we do not provide in-house pet insurance or other payment arrangements, we do take Visa, Discover, Mastercard, and U.S currency as a forms of payment.
