Dog Exams in Livonia, MI

Personalized Cat & Dog Exams

Since every pet has their own unique set of traits and health risks, it is important that we fully understand their condition and lifestyle before treating them. Our doctors and staff at Levan Road Veterinary Hospital have a vested interest in your pet’s well-being and seeing that you get to share as many years together as possible. To stay well, your pet needs yearly cat or dog exams, vaccinations, and blood screenings to ensure that they are staying the course and receiving the necessary protection. Call us today at (734) 464-6281 to stay up to date with your annual pet exams.

Puppies, Kittens, Adults, and Seniors Have Different Needs

A 3-month old puppy, a 3-year old dog, and a 13-year old dog will not receive the same treatment when they visit for their checkups.

  • Puppy and kitten care is focused on giving your pet the best possible start in life. Nutrition, behavior, vaccinations, and parasite control are all addressed as we monitor growth.
  • Annual exams for adult dogs and cats are emphasized to maintain health and prevent disease before it happens. This is a more rewarding way to practice medicine, as preventing is superior to presenting a pet with end stage disease, which may have less chance of being treated. Vaccinations (when indicated), parasite control, weight control and nutrition are addressed routinely.
  • Senior care involves monitoring your pet's health closely and seeing them annually or biannually for exams and diagnostics. Senior pets often have chronic, long-standing conditions that require tailored pain control and other medication to improve and support their quality of life. See our Golden Years Club for more about the senior care we offer.

How Exams and Screens Benefit Your Pet

Prevention lies at the core of keeping pets well, and truly is the best medicine. At Levan Road Veterinary Hospital, we are proactive about preventative care and wellness for pets of all ages. Yearly exams allow us to check your pet for outward physical changes, while blood and parasite screens show us what is going on inside. Illnesses or other conditions that may just be getting started can be detected with the help of our diagnostic tools. With early detection, we can therefore provide early treatment for your pet.

Does Your Pet Have a Wellness Plan?

While your pet may seem to be doing just fine without regular wellness visits, they could be concealing an illness or be at an increased risk for infection. Pets hide their illnesses well, which is why routine exams and tests are so important. For more information about our pet wellness services, please contact us at (734) 464-6281.
