One of your biggest responsibilities as a pet owner is caring for the health and welfare of your pet. Pets, like people, need routine healthcare. If you live in Durham or surrounding communities, you can bring your pet to Alexander at the Park Veterinary Hospital for quality vet care. Our full-service animal care facility offers all the pet care services you need to keep your kit or pup in the best of health. Here’s what you can expect from our comprehensive vet care.
Our preventative pet care programs start with an annual exam to inspect your pet’s overall health. During this exam, our veterinarian will check your pet for signs of health issues like parasites, allergies, joint problems, digestive issues, or other health conditions. We’ll weigh your pet, take his temperature and inspect his body from head to toe. We’ll also listen to his heart and lungs to detect early warning signs of cardiovascular or respiratory diseases.
Depending on our findings, we may perform diagnostics like blood, urine, or fecal tests to confirm a health condition. If your pet needs medications, our in-house pharmacy makes it easy for you to get the prescriptions he needs.
At Alexander at the Park Veterinary Hospital, you benefit from the experience and expertise of Dr. Karen Robertson, DVM, and our team of veterinary experts for the care of your beloved pet. Our comprehensive pet care services range from annual exams to dental care, diagnostics, parasite control, surgical services, internal medicine, emergency care, lab work, and acute care. Our team treats a diversity of pets to include dogs, birds, reptiles, rabbits, small farm animals, and pocket pets.
Importance of Routine Veterinary Care
Routine vet care is one of the best ways to preserve the health of your pet. As your pet gets older, he’s more susceptible to illness and disease. Some health conditions and diseases may not have outward symptoms until the advanced stages, which may be too late to treat. Through routine exams, our veterinarian can detect signs of illness early on so your pet can get immediate treatment. Early detection and treatment can help save your pet from pain and suffering. It can also save you money in extensive treatments. Early treatment also improves your pet’s chances of recovery from serious health issues.
