Good Health Exam

Because your pet ages more quickly than humans, it is critically important to schedule an exam at least once a year, or more frequently as your pet ages or if there are health issues.

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.


We strive for a balanced vaccine schedule that provides the protection your pet needs from infectious disease without over-vaccinating. Vaccines are essential in preventing canine distemper, parvovirus, rabies, Lyme disease, and more found in dogs. For cats, vaccines prevent feline leukemia, panleukopenia, respiratory diseases, and rabies.


Each year, millions of pets go missing and, sadly, never make it back home. A simple microchip implant is a safe, effective way to avoid this tragedy. A microchip is about the size and shape of a grain of rice and is easily implanted beneath the skin between the shoulder blades. It’s an easy procedure and is as painless as a vaccination, offering a lifetime of assurance.

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.

X-rays for dogs | Mineral Ridge, OH

Diagnostic Services

No matter how attentive to your pet’s health you may be, disease or injury may strike unexpectedly.

Our investment in the best and latest diagnostic systems provides us the tools we need to make assessments and decisions swiftly and accurately.

Ultrasound is a non-invasive procedure that uses soundwaves to provide moving pictures of your pet’s organs, including the abdomen and heart. It requires no anesthesia and is less stressful and more comfortable for your pet. A quick and accurate diagnosis can make all the difference in deciding the right course of treatment for your pet.

Digital Radiology

Advances in digital x-ray technology allow us to produce faster, more accurate x-rays than traditional film and plate radiographs while reducing your pet’s exposure to radiation and providing clearer high-resolution images for even better diagnosis. Monitors in each exam room enable us to view your pet’s digital images during your visit and help make important care decisions.

Diagnostic Laboratory

Blood, fluids, and tissue samples provide us essential information about your pet’s health that might not be detectable during a routine or emergency exam. It is critical to quickly obtain results during the exam process to provide an immediate diagnosis and treatment plan for your pet.

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.

Diagnostic Specialists

Your pet’s health is the most critical concern to us. As with our own health matters, there are times when specialists are consulted for second opinions or to improve the chances of a successful outcome for more unusual or complex cases. Mahoning Valley Veterinary Centre has an extensive network of laboratories and specialists to assure that your pet’s diagnosis and treatment plan has the best chance for its recovery and good health.
pet surgeries | Mineral Ridge, OH

Surgical Care

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 for pets | Mineral Ridge, OH

Dental Care

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.

pain management for pets | Mineral Ridge, OH

Pain Management

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.

Laser Therapy

Mahoning Valley Veterinary Centre utilizes pet laser therapy to promote healing and reduce pain for various conditions, including arthritis and post-operative healing.
veterinary care for senior pets | Mineral Ridge, OH

Senior Care

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.
