Preventive Care

Wellness Exams

Your pet’s health is important to us, and our goal is to keep your pet healthy for a long and happy life. At Katy Trail Animal Hospital we believe that annual wellness exams for your dog and cat are important steps toward that goal. We emphasize wellness and prevention; the annual exam allows us to develop a picture of your pet’s overall health so we may detect disease before it becomes a serious health condition. Annual exams also allow us to develop a long-term comprehensive health baseline profile for your pet, which will aid us in future treatment.

Wellness exams at VCA Katy Trail Animal Hospital include a full physical exam, thorough screenings for common diseases such as heartworm, lymes disease, and giardia, and important vaccines that protect your dog or cat from preventable and serious diseases. All vaccine schedules at Katy Trail Animal Hospital are customized to reflect your pet’s individual needs. Food and nutrition guidance and a dental exam are also part of the annual wellness exam.

Our exam rooms are comfortable and allow plenty of space for multiple family members to attend your pet’s wellness exam. We will spend time with you so that we may answer all questions you may have. We value the time you spend with us.
