Wellness Exams

Wellness exams are a chance for us to assess your pet's overall health, discuss any changes we see, and educate and update you on advancements in veterinary care. They also present an opportunity for you to ask questions.

 

Wellness examinations are the same for your pet as the yearly physical you receive from your doctor. During your pet's yearly wellness examination at Curtis Road Animal Hospital, we will:

  • Discuss any changes in your pet's activity, appetite, behavior, weight, or urinary/bowel habits.

  • Examine your pet's teeth, gums and mouth

  • Examine the eyes for discharge or abnormalities

  • Examine the ears for infection or ear mites

  • Listen to your pet's heart and lungs and evaluate cardiac and respiratory function

  • Palpate lymph nodes for enlargement

  • Palpate the abdomen for organ size

  • Inspect the skin and hair coat for allergies, rashes, masses, or parasites

  • Palpate joints and muscles for lameness, arthritis and other orthopedic conditions

A wellness exam may include ancillary tests such as:

  • A blood test to evaluate the function of internal organs, salts and minerals, red blood cell levels, and the immune system.

  • Urine testing to evaluate kidney function and bladder health

  • Blood tests for Heartworm or tick-borne illness

  • Stool testing for the presence of parasites

 

 
Vaccinations

Vaccinations are an important aspect of your pet's preventative health and are a very effective way to prevent some serious and potentially lethal illnesses. 

It is important for the Doctor to perform an examination prior to administering any vaccines. Underlying conditions could cause an adverse reaction to the vaccine or reduce its efficacy.

 

We tailor our vaccination recommendations based on the lifestyle of your pet, AAHA (American Animal Hospital Association) and AAFP (American Association of Feline Practitioners) guidelines, and Champaign County law. 

 

We can provide the following vaccines for your CAT:

We can provide the following vaccines for your DOG:

  • Rabies - 1 or 3 year

  • Distemper-Parvovirus - 1 or 3 Year

  • Leptospirosis

  • Lyme

  • Bordetella (Kennel cough)

 

Along with the annual examination and vaccinations, we recommend the following for a healthy lifestyle:

For Dogs:

  • A high quality diet

  • Annual heartworm testing

  • Year-round heartworm and intestinal parasite prevention

  • Seasonal flea and tick control

  • Annual or semi annual stool testing for parasites

  • Dental care as needed

  • For dogs over 7 years of age: annual geriatric blood testing

  • Daily exercise

For cats:

  • A high quality diet

  • Seasonal flea control for cats going outdoors or housed with a dog

  • Heartworm and intestinal parasite prevention

  • Dental care as needed

  • Annual fecal testing for parasites

  • For cats over 9 years of age, annual geriatric blood testing

In addition to these basic recommendations, the Doctor may advise you of certain conditions that your particular breed may be prone to.

 

Surgery
In the unfortunate event that pet should require surgery, rest assured that our doctors are skilled and experienced veterinary surgeons.
We strive to ensure your pet's procedure is as safe, comfortable and as pain - free as possible.

 

Some of the procedures we perform are:

  • tumor and mass removal

  • wound/laceration repair

  • orthopedics (visiting surgeon)

  • dental extraction

 

Micro Chipping

A microchip is a tiny (about the size of a rice gain) inert circuit that can be inserted beneath the skin and provide a life-time of identification for your pet. In the unfortunate event that your pet becomes lost without an ID tag, animal care professionals can scan your pet, obtain your information and return him/her to you as soon as possible!  




Dental Care

We believe dental care is just as important

for our pets as it is for us. That's why we

provide a wide range of VOHC (Veterinary Oral

Health Council) approved oral care products

from toothpaste to chews to special diets.

 

Oral care starts with a clean mouth. We can provide a variety of dental services from ultrasonic cleaning, subgingival planing, extractions, and gum treatment.

 

After your pet's dental cleaning, we can apply Oravet, a plaque prevention system. It significantly reduces plaque and tartar formation by creating an invisible barrier that helps prevent bacteria from attaching to your pet's teeth.

 

Radiology

 Radiographs (X-Rays) are an important diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine.

They allow us to view the shape, size and location of organs inside your pet's

body and are helpful for diagnosing and monitoring many medical and

surgical conditions.  An x-ray can detect bladder stones, a fractured bone,

tumor, heart problem, and locate an obstruction or foreign body in your pet's

stomach or intestine.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Laboratory Testing
Our laboratory service utilizes
both an in-house and reference laboratory for extensive diagnostic testing. Blood testing is an adjunct to the physical exam to provide information not evident on physical exam and can provide information that is critical to the sick or injured pet. Providing this service in-house allows us to make timely medical diagnosis and prompt treatment decisions in critically ill patients.

 

Our In-house lab can perform:

  • Full Chemistry - organ function, electrolytes, minerals, metabolites

  • Blood Counts - tests for anemia and immune cells

  • Urinalysis - for kidney function, infection, bleeding

  • Cytology - microscopic exam of samples from the ear, skin, and lump  aspirates ("needle biopsy")

  • Stool analysis - for bacterial, protozoal, and parasitic infections

  • Disease specific testing for pancreatitis, heartworms, Feline Leukemia, FIV

 

Pharmacy

Curtis Road Animal Hospital stocks an extensive inventory of medications that can be dispensed before you and your pet leave the hospital ensuring that your pet will receive the right medication, at the right dose, in the right form as quickly as possible. We will also be able to easily guide you on the medication's use as well as monitor its effectiveness.

 

We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription diets.

Spay & Neuter

In addition to saving lives, spaying and neutering can also drastically improve your pet's health and life expectancy. Spaying a female eliminates the possibility of uterine and ovarian cancer and significantly reduces the risk of breast cancer. Neutering a male reduces the risk of prostate disease and testicular cancer. Neutering also makes your pet more affectionate and less likely to roam, get into fights, or become lost.
