Pet Wellness Exams and Other Preventative Procedures

Our Livonia animal hospital offers a number of preventative services to help you keep your pet on the road to good health, from pet wellness exams to dietary advice. Let us provide your best friend with:

Annual Pet Checkup

Most adult animals need an annual pet checkup to make sure all is well. Our veterinarian in Livonia may use lab tests, X-rays, physical inspections, weighing and other methods to get a clear picture of your pet's state of health.

Puppy, Kitten and Senior Pet Wellness Exams

 Your pet faces different wellness challenges at different stages of life. Our Livonia veterinarian can provide multiple puppy and kitten checkups during these animals' first year of life. We also provide twice-annual senior pet wellness exams to watch out for age-related ailments.

Vaccinations in Livonia

Vaccinations in Livonia can save your pet from harmful or even fatal disease threats, especially the core vaccinations that protect against the most common killers. We can provide both core and elective vaccinations, as well as any elective vaccinations and booster shots your pet may need.

Parasite Prevention

Parasites can spell serious trouble or even death for your pet. We can check for parasites, administer de-worming treatments and place your pet on preventative medications.

Dental Exams and Cleanings

Dental exams naturally complement general wellness exams, allowing us to check your pet's mouth for oral cancer, gum disease, tooth damage and other problems. Teeth cleaning under anesthesia is another important wellness step to reduce the bacteria that cause gum disease and infection.

Spaying and Neutering

Our veterinarian in Livonia urges pet owners to sterilize their pets before the age of sexual maturity. The removal of the reproductive organs eliminates or greatly lowers the risk for many serious diseases, including reproductive cancers.


Microchipping can help animal workers identify your pet even if the collar tag has gone missing, allowing your pet to be reunited with you. The tiny microchip containing your pet unique ID number can be injected into the skin quickly and easily, making surgery unnecessary.

Diet and Nutrition

Obesity can lead to hypertension, diabetes, organ failure, joint damage and cancer. If your pet is putting on extra weight, our Livonia veterinarian can prescribe dietary and exercise routines to get the problem under control. We can also prescribe special diets for pets battling allergies or chronic diseases.
