Pet Physical Examinations in Fort Lauderdale
Annual Pet Health Checkups
Regular check-ups are an important part of keeping your pet healthy. DPC Veterinary Hospital in Fort Lauderdale recommends that all pets receive a yearly comprehensive physical examination, though more frequent exams are also encouraged if there is need.
Routine physical examinations are vital in prevention and maintenance and can ensure that any medical conditions are treated before they become critical. Exams aid your pet's veterinarian in developing a clear picture of your pet's health and help establish an interpersonal relationship with your loved one.

What to Expect at a Physical Examination
During the examination, your pet's doctor will:
- Evaluate your pet's vital signs
- Listen to the lungs and heart
- Check eyes and ears
- Exam the teeth and oral cavity
- Check for any unusual growths
- Evaluate the joints and muscles
It's also the perfect time for the doctor to evaluate behavior, diet, and other daily habits. DPC Veterinary Hospital encourages all clients to discuss all concerns and ask as many questions as possible at the time of your examination. We strongly believe in working closely with our clients to achieve the best possible results to improve the quality of life for each and every pet.
The Importance of Providing Routine Vaccinations
Along with regular physical exams, vaccinations are the cornerstone of preventive health care for your pet. Thanks to recent advances in veterinary medicine, many common diseases that affect cats and dogs are now preventable through the use of vaccinations.
Some such vaccines are Rabies, Distemper, Bordetella (Kennel Cough), and Feline Leukemia. These and other diseases are easily prevented through routine cat and dog vaccinations. Our goal is to provide quality care at the lowest Vet fees in the Hollywood area.
DPC Veterinary Hospital is proud to offer a wide variety of low-cost pet vaccination packages. These packages ensure the optimum level of preventative care for each pet at a reasonable price.
