At Spring Valley Veterinary Hospital, we offer a variety of services to care for your pet. If you have any questions or would like more information on how we can care for your pet, please contact us today.
Exams and Consultations
Our staff will get a chance to talk to you and see if you are having any trouble with your pet. We will also go over diet, preventative medicine, and exercise to ensure that your pet is as healthy as possible. Then, one of our veterinarians will do a complete physical examination on your pet. It is always good to have a baseline in case your pet ever becomes ill. We also want to monitor your pet’s weight, ensuring that your pet stays a healthy weight. It is much easier to start a diet when a pet is a pound overweight instead of fifteen! Our veterinarian will also look for any potential problems. Our goal is to catch any problems before they become major ones. The sooner that we are able to catch a problem, the easier it is to treat it and the more likely that your pet will make a full recovery!
Obesity is a common problem among pets, as it can be easy to over-feed a pet that knows how to beg.

Pets’ nutritional needs change as they enter different stages of their lives. The best way to make sure your pet’s needs are being met is to consult with us about a diet made specifically for his or her lifestyle.

They need to be fed a high quality senior diet to meet their changing nutritional needs. Owners really need to monitor their pets’ eating habits because many pets become picky as they get older. Our veterinarians at Spring Valley Veterinary Hospital recommend that senior pets get examined more than once a year, if possible. This will help us to monitor their body weight and condition. We may even catch some problems that you may not notice. We also recommend that owners of senior pets run regular blood work with a urinalysis if possible. This should be done to review certain blood values, including the kidneys and liver. It will also look for early signs of diabetes, cancer, and other potential problems. If the owners are able, we also recommend running a thyroid panel. Arthritis is a very common problem with older pets.
