Physical examinations are crucial to your pet’s health. We offer thorough physical examinations so that we can detect any potential problems ahead of time. There are many pet health problems that can be avoided through regular physical exams, which is why we recommend that your pet has at least two examinations with our staff per year.

While physical exams are critical to animal health, you can do your part by being a vigilant pet owner. If you notice any irregularities with your pet, take detailed notes and bring him or her to DC Ranch Animal Hospital for an examination.

Appointments
We suggest that you schedule an appointment for your pet in an attempt to provide both you and your pet a convenient, efficient and safe visit to our hospital with a minimum of delays. We make every effort to adhere to the appointment schedule. We occasionally run behind due to emergencies, and we ask for your patience and understanding.

If you prefer to see a specific doctor, let us know when you schedule your appointment, and when you arrive.

Please keep your pet on a leash or in a carrier at all times. This will avoid exposure to other patients and avoid escapes.
