Good Health Exam
Here’s what you can expect during a Good Health exam:
- Check temperature, respiration rate, pulse, and weight.
- Check heart and lungs to detect any abnormalities.
- Check ears for yeast, bacteria, parasites, and foreign objects.
- Check eyes for abnormalities, injuries, or ulcers.
- Gums, teeth, tongue, and palate are checked for abnormalities, fractures, decay, infections, tarter, and loose teeth.
- Check the reproductive system for any swellings, discharges, or breast lumps.
- Examine skin condition as an indicator of overall nutritional health, as well as for allergies, infections, warts, cysts, tumors, and parasites.
- An abdominal exam will detect irregularities such as enlarged organs, masses, or areas that are painful.
- Lymph nodes and nose are checked.
- Skeletal exam including legs and feet for abnormalities or signs of arthritic onset.
Each microchip has a unique identification number which is registered, along with the pet’s and owner’s information, with a national pet registry. Most veterinary hospitals and animal shelters have electronic scanners for reading microchips. If your lost pet is found, the registry is called, and you will be contacted.
No matter how attentive to your pet’s health you may be, disease or injury may strike unexpectedly. Mahoning Valley Veterinary Centre is prepared to quickly and aggressively diagnose your pet’s illness. Our investment in the best and latest diagnostic systems provides us the tools we need to make assessments and decisions swiftly and accurately.

Our extensive, state-of-the-art in-house diagnostic laboratory conducts mandatory pre-surgical screening. This critical precautionary measure assures us that we have the necessary information about your pet’s specific condition before, during, and after any surgical or treatment procedure.
At Mahoning Valley Veterinary Centre, no surgical procedure is considered routine. That’s why we require mandatory pre-surgical screening and continual monitoring during and after each and every procedure. We utilize the latest laser technology to maximize our surgery’s success and provide the best results.
We monitor all parameters of our anesthetized patients, measuring heart rate, internal temperature, pulse, respiration, and oxygen saturation of red blood cells. A continuous ECG is also used for your pet’s safety.
Dental care is vital to the overall health of any animal. Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys and can affect the entire body through the bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population.
Despite these disturbing facts, many pet owners are not aware of the importance of dental care to their pet’s health. There are many different ways to improve your pet’s dental hygiene, including home brushing, dental chews, and regular inspection.
The most effective way to protect your pet from dental disease is through professional cleanings. We perform thorough cleanings, including the area beneath the gums that you can’t see or access at home.
If your pet has brown/yellow teeth, bad breath, or difficulty eating, these could all be signs of dental disease. Call to schedule your appointment.
When our pets are in pain, so are we. It’s an awful feeling to know that your special friend is hurting, especially when there isn’t anything you can do to help them. Our goal is to eliminate as much pain as possible and give these pets a better quality of life.
We administer strict pain management protocol for all surgical procedures to ensure your family pet is as comfortable as possible at all stages of the procedure.
We also anticipate and plan for procedures with the potential for future pain. In addition, we also work with pet owners to educate them on how to recognize signs of pain in your pet.
Since pets age faster than we do, it’s easy to forget that they can be considered seniors after just seven years. And as they get older, their health needs change in unique ways that require proper consideration. We will work with you to develop a health plan that is right for your senior pet’s unique needs.
As a pet owner, you want to make sure your pet has the highest quality of life as they age. With proper care, they may even get more time to spend with you and your family!
We’re here for your pet at every stage. Reach out to us about the proper care for your senior pet.
