Veterinary Services for Austin Pets

Pet Wellness Exams and Vaccinations

During your pet's wellness exam in our Austin, TX veterinary clinic, our veterinarians perform a "nose-to-tail" assessment of your pet's health. We examine your pet's ears, eyes, and nose; check your pet's teeth for dental problems; listen to your pet's heart and lungs; and carefully examine the skin and coat. We also look carefully for any unusual lumps or swelling, palpate the abdomen and muscles and perform an orthopedic evaluation of the bones, joints and back. Pet vaccinations for your dog or cat involve a simple procedure that is safe, effective and well worth the financial commitment. Many diseases that were once considered fatal to pets are now under control due to the use of modern vaccines.
