Desert Ridge Animal Hospital
Pet Wellness Exams
Your pet comes first at Desert Ridge Animal Hospital, and we show you how that’s true with our comprehensive wellness exams.
Comprehensive Wellness Exams
First, we will discuss your pet’s medical history and current overall well-being. We will talk about lifestyle, diet, any medications, and behavior issues your pet might have. We do this first so that we can take plenty of time to introduce ourselves to your cat or dog, making a point not to rush so that your pet feels more comfortable with us.
We then perform a head-to-tail assessment examining the eyes, ears, heart, lungs, skin, abdomen, lymph nodes, and teeth. During the examination, we will review and highlight any concerns we find or things to consider. If your pet is looking healthy, we will let you know that right away!
We Answer Your Questions
What diet is right for your pet’s specific breed, age, and lifestyle? There are so many choices available, so we will help you choose what is best for your pet.
If you have questions about why your cat or dog is behaving a certain way, we can help you identify the potential causes and advise how to help.
What supplements are safe to give to your pet, and which will actually help them live a healthy life? We will help you choose which supplements make sense to ensure your pet lives as long and comfortably as possible.
Heartworm disease is more prevalent now in Phoenix than it has ever been before. We can help you prevent your pet from getting this disease, as well as other preventable diseases.
When should you spay or neuter your pet? When should you transition from puppy food to adult food or from adult food to a senior diet? How can you increase your senior pet’s quality-of-life? We can help you navigate the best recommendations for your pet based on their current stage of life.
