Regular vet exams keep your pet healthier, and ultimately happier. At Affordable Animal Hospital in Covina, exams and consultations are an important part of our goal to keep your pets healthy at an affordable price.
What to expect at a Vet Exam?
A veterinary exam, like a checkup or physical, is an extensive health examination of your pet’s body systems, medical history and mental or behavioral issues. It’s not always obvious when an animal is in discomfort and these exams allow us to take a closer look. Based on the results of the examination our vets can give additional recommendations, ranging from diet changes, to X-rays.
At Affordable Animal Hospital in Covina, our vets will check for issues with:
- Skin and coat
- Symptoms of infections or growths

- Signs of virus or other illness

After the examination, our vets will speak with you about our recommendations for your pet. Exams and consultations are a good way to ensure your dog or cat has a long, healthy, happy life.

If you are planning a trip with your pet it is important to schedule an exam before setting out on your journey. Many countries have strict regulations for traveling pets and specialized vaccinations may be required. Additional testing may be required so plan your visit long before your travel date. Even state to state travel may require valid health certificates, especially when flying.
