What Services Does a Veterinarian Offer?

Veterinarians perform a range of services to keep pets healthy. They complete routine examinations to check for physical signs of disease, as well as do blood work, imaging tests and other diagnostics to take a closer look at possible complications. Veterinary services make it possible to reduce the risks of chronic illnesses, such as obesity and heart disease, as well as ensure a pet is receiving proper nutrition and care in its day-to-day life.

Our team at Blue Lake Animal Hospital is committed to delivering the best care possible. We use a combination of innovative veterinary services to support your pet’s lifelong health: 

  • Preventative care, including heartworm prevention, vaccinations and dental care
  • Surgical services, such as neutering, tumor removal and orthopedic surgery
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Reproductive care
  • Senior pet care
  • And more. 

What Happens During a Veterinary Exam

Your pet’s regular physical exam reveals key information about her health. Our veterinarians look for signs of potential disease by examining the following:

  • Ears: Both cats and dogs are prone to ear infections. This can be caused by ear mites or bacteria, and the signs include inflamed, painful ears. We carefully check your pet’s ears for these symptoms, and we also check for polyps that should be removed. 
  • Eyes: Eye injuries and infections can put your pet’s vision at risk. Flat-faced dog breeds, such as French bulldogs, are especially prone to eye-related complications. It’s important to have a veterinarian take a close look at your animal’s eyes for these reasons. 
  • Mouth: Dental health issues can cause inflammation and infection in other parts of your pet’s body. A few common oral complications include gingivitis, tartar buildup, loose or missing teeth and oral masses. Oral bacteria can enter the bloodstream and damage the kidneys and other organs.  
  • Skin: Your pet’s skin and coat reveal a lot about his health. Itchy skin and hair loss are symptoms of several health problems, such as fleas, infections, allergies and endocrine imbalances. Much of his health can be discerned simply by examining his coat. 
  • Muscles and Bones. If you notice your pet has developed an abnormal gait or limping, let our veterinarians know. Injuries and chronic diseases like osteoarthritis can impact your pet’s movement patterns, but so can lifestyle problems such as inactivity. It’s important to make sure there aren’t any serious underlying conditions.
