Your Pet’s Physical Exam

During your first visit to a Houston animal clinic, your pet will be weighed and examined from head to tail. Your Houston veterinarian will check eyes, ears, teeth, throat, coat and skin. The vet will also feel the animal’s limbs and abdomen to detect any abnormalities or problems. If you have veterinary records, bring them with you, so the vet can get a full picture of the animal’s condition. The vet will ask questions about what your pet eats, the amount of exercise he or she gets and other questions about habits and behavior. You will receive information about vaccination, parasite prevention and other matters that help to ensure your pet’s continued health.

Discussing Pet Problems With Your Houston Veterinarian

Your initial visit to your Houston animal hospital is a good time to get to know the veterinarian and to discuss any concerns you have, such as feeding problems, behavioral issues or questions about preventive care. Your veterinarian’s years of experience can help you to provide optimum care for your pet.

Managing Your Pet’s Health Problems

If your pet has an ongoing health problem, the vet may wish to do blood tests or other diagnostic procedures in order to provide proper treatment. The veterinarian can provide you with information about holistic care and alternative methods that may be of benefit to your pet’s health. If necessary, we can refer you a specialist for your pet’s care and will work closely with them to keep your pet healthy and functioning well.

  • "I’ve been coming here for over 25 years and with over a dozen pups. I’ve moved 4 times and regardless of distance VMDAH is the only choice for me."
    Bob N.
  • "I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Crist and Veterans Memorial Drive Animal Hospital. I have NEVER been to a doctor (especially a veterinarian) who took a full hour to do an exam and history. I was so impressed with the time taken and genuine concern that Dr. Crist had for my kiddo. I am so happy that they provide alternatives to traditional veterinarian medicine like chiropractic, acupuncture and supplements. I highly recommend VMDAH!"
