Twice-yearly exams and lab testing are the two best ways to insure a long healthy life for your pet. At Gateway Pet Hospital we believe that the Comphrehensive Physical Exam is the foundation of your pets’ long term health. Your veterinarian is the only person in your furry-kids life that is specifically trained with the expertise to detect problems before they become overwhelming. Our focus on preventative maintenance allows us to show how you can best care for your pet, to avoid the unexpected surprise and sometimes costly measures that are needed when health problems become serious. A thorough comphrehensive physical examination at least annually is the most important step in tracking and maintaining health. Since pets age faster than humans, changes occur at a much more rapid pace and we can help you recognize, monitor and intervene early, before they become catastrophic or too costly to correct.
