At Pet Care Veterinary Hospital, regular wellness exams allow us to evaluate your pet’s general health and become aware of any problems before they become serious illnesses. We recommend that you bring your dog in every year for a wellness exam and lab testing until he or she becomes a senior citizen. Older dogs can see major health changes occur in a very short amount of time, so it is important that we see your aging pet more often. We will recommend how often based on your dog’s personal needs.
We will go through your pet’s history with you and will ask questions concerning any unusual behavior you may have noticed, which may include:
Because we live in a high-risk area, we will ask about your pet’s exposure to fleas, ticks, heartworms, and intestinal parasites. We will develop an individualized treatment/preventive plan to address these issues.
We may also recommend additional testing to diagnose/verify a health problem or if any abnormalities are found during your pet’s examination.
Thank you to everyone. I already thought Dr. Bean was an amazing vet when he sat on the floor with my kitties to do their exams, now I realize he cares about his patients on ALL levels, as well as their parents. I highly recommend this office.
They all were amazingly compassionate people, and truly were hurt from hearing the news. They also care for our Lesser Sulfur Crested Cockatoo that we still have and will for many years to come. They have helped with everything from checking her health after over 14 years of being at a vet clinic to getting her foods shifted over to a much more healthy diet.
Dr Hulls was very good with our 5 yr old Macaw. Explained to us very well everything he was doing or had to do. Will be bringing our Carl back when he's due...Thank You
My pet ate part of a rug and although I thought she had passed it, there was still someone her intestines. She had surgery and then we had some issues that made me nervous. The staff was wonderful when I was so stressed out and helpful when I came in (daily) with new issues.
Pet Care Veterinary Hospital has provided the BEST care for my dog. Since moving to Virginia Beach, 7 years ago, I went to 2 other veterinarian services before luckily finding Dr. Partlow and Dr. Hulls, who I credit for saving my dog's life and keeping him in perfect health. The care that the staff takes is just as if their animal patients are their very own pets. I couldn't love and trust Pet Care Veterinary Hospital more, and I highly recommend them!
