Examinations-


At Mountain View Animal Hospital we do thorough physical exams to help evaluate your pet’s health.  During the exam, our vets will assess the body condition and overall health of your animal, as well as take the time to educate you on any conditions or abnormalities noted during the exam.  They will consult with you on any questions or concerns you may have about your pet’s health and/or behavior.


We strongly recommend yearly physical exams for most pets and bi-annual for older pets, so that our patients can receive the best care. This is for the benefit of your animals, so we can monitor for any changes as they age and practice good preventative medicine. For more information on exams please go to our Health Section.


Examinations are available by appointments only. Our office is open Monday through Friday 7:30 am to 6 pm and on Saturdays from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm. Please call with any questions or to set up an appointment.


Vaccinations-


During the first few weeks of your pet’s life, he/she receives immunity from their mother’s milk. As they get older, the immunity wears off and your animal does need to receive a series of vaccines as a preventative measure to help bolster the young animal’s immunity. The series of vaccines are given every 3-4 weeks and usually consist of 2-3 shots depending on their age. For more in-depth information on vaccinations please see our Health Section.


Reminders-


Mountain View Animal Hospital sends monthly reminder cards to clients to inform them of exams, vaccines, tests, or treatments that their pet(s) will be due for in the upcoming month.  We also call clients the business day prior to exams and surgeries to remind them of their pet’s appointment. Following surgeries and medical cases, we call to check up on the animal’s condition and progress.


Heartworm Disease-


Heartworm Disease is becoming more prevalent in this region especially with animals moving to the area from high incidence areas. Heartworm disease is transmitted by mosquitoes and can be fatal when left untreated. Diagnosing Heartworm Disease has become fairly easy, requiring only a quick blood draw (all we need is a few drops) and about 10 minutes for the test to run.  Before placing your dog on a preventative, it is important that your animal tests negative to the disease.  If Heartworm disease is diagnosed it is important to realize it CAN be treated and has a better prognosis if diagnosed in the early stages.
