Your pet’s health is always our number one priority, which is why for most pets we recommend annual wellness exams to ensure that your animal companion remains in good health. If your pet is a senior–over seven for dogs, over nine for cats–we strongly suggest twice-yearly exams and blood screenings. That’s because pets age more rapidly than humans, meaning disease and illness develop faster as well.
Our wellness services are comprehensive and thorough, because we want to do everything in our power to keep your loved one healthy. At each visit, the doctor will examine your pet from nose to tail, looking for anything out of the ordinary. We will also develop and implement a customized preventative care plan tailored to your pet’s unique needs, lifestyle and risk factors. This will include vaccines, parasite control, nutrition and weight management and anything else we deem relevant to your furry family member.
Sometimes diagnosing a health issue means piecing together all the information you have about a pet—their lifestyle, medical history, clinical signs, lab results, imaging and testing—to create a clear picture of the problem.
At Mt. Olive Veterinary Hospital, we have the experience to assess your pet’s condition as accurately as possible, and to provide treatment, hospitalization, surgery, and specialist referrals if necessary.
Some of the conditions and diseases treated with internal medicine include:
- thyroid issues
- infectious diseases
- inflammatory bowel disease and other gastrointestinal disorders
- acute or chronic kidney failure
- asthma and respiratory conditions
- pneumonia and bronchitis
Taking care of your pet’s health starts with a thorough veterinary exam. To schedule an appointment for your pet, call us at 973-691-9333.
