Health care for your older pet goes beyond regular vaccinations, parasite control, dental cleaning, regular exercise, and good nutrition. Our patient-customized health care program seeks to not only promote health, but also prevent, or at least slow, disease by focusing on the body systems that are most affected by aging.
We begin the process by obtaining a complete patient history and performing a thorough physical examination. Knowing what to look for is extremely important. That’s why we believe in performing screening procedures so that we always have accurate information about your pet’s needs and can provide the care required to prolong and improve the quality of your pet’s life.
All screening procedures will be discussed with you at the time of your appointment. The test results and any treatment plans will also be discussed with you within 48 hours of your visit.
Remember, just as when people have an annual physical, in most cases the results are normal. Even then, it’s good to know that everything is “all right” and the evaluation provides valuable baseline data on which to compare future results. If a condition is revealed, you know it has been discovered as early as possible and treatment can be started.
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!
