Veterinary Exams

Taking your furry friend to the veterinary hospital for regular check-ups is one of the basics and foundations of being a good pet parent. We perform comprehensive tests and assessments on your pet during these visits, which will help identify any underlying problems. Also, based on results, your veterinarian will be able to decide if any changes are needed to your pet’s current treatment plan, diet or routine. Call us at 250-376-7208 to schedule your pet’s next appointment and to learn more about what we offer during our veterinary exams here at Central Animal Hospital.
