What to Expect

Cup in water

At Carlton Veterinary Hospital, our goal is to offer a veterinary health care team committed to providing exceptional client service and outstanding veterinary health care. Our commitment to you is to offer compassionate care paired with advanced and up-to-date medical treatments. Your pet's annual wellness exam will include a complete physical with a thorough examination of the eyes, ears, teeth, heart, lungs, abdomen, body condition and hair coat.

We recommend brushing your pet's teeth as often as daily, however even the most cooperative pet may not readily go along with a tooth and gum brushing. Like you, your pet can lose his teeth due to decay and neglect. Based on your pet's oral health, a dental cleaning by your veterinarian may be in order.

It's a good idea to keep an accurate medical diary not only of the procedures and vaccinations your pet receives at the vet, but also of notes on things like your pet's elimination habits and any physical changes or unusual occurrences. Keep track of small shifts in your pet's behavior, including urinary marking habits and mood swings, along with diet and routine modifications. These seemingly unrelated occurrences may be helpful to your veterinarian in diagnosing your pet's medical condition.

Our veterinarians are calm, compassionate, and willing to explain all the procedures your pet undergoes. Our qualified staff and facilities are set up to perform surgeries and other procedures requiring anesthesia. Due to the general risks inherent to anesthesia, especially for very old, very young or very ill pets, your veterinarian will require an exam and lab work to rule out any potential underlying conditions before your pet is anesthetized. Antibiotics and pain medication may be necessary before and after a procedure and informational instructions will be provided following a procedure or hospital stay.

As our client, we are there to help provide guidance for your pet. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us to speak with one of our doctors or our dedicated veterinary team.
