At Montgomery Veterinary Associates, serving the Forest Park neighborhood, we prioritize your pets’ well-being. For cats and dogs under the age of 7, annual wellness visits include thorough exams and essential lab tests. Senior pets (7 and above) or those with chronic conditions may need more frequent check-ups. Whether annually or semiannually, these routine visits enable early detection of health changes, allowing us to provide timely care and prevent serious issues. Your commitment to regular examinations is crucial for the ongoing health and joy of your pets in the Forest Park community.

Pet Wellness Services We Provide in Forest Park
At MVA, we provide several foundational services to establish a baseline of health for your pet, screen for early signs of disease, and improve quality of life.
The physical exam is the first step towards keeping your Forest Park pets healthy and happy from one year to the next. We assess your pet from nose to tail and make note of anything out of the ordinary. If we suspect a health problem, we can suggest bloodwork to investigate further, and suggest an appropriate treatment if necessary. We can also conduct an oral examination to check your pet’s mouth, teeth, and gums for signs of periodontal disease and other dental issues and administer any necessary vaccinations.
Internal medicine deals with the diagnosis and treatment of disease inside the body. Conditions we commonly treat in this area of medicine include:
- Kidney/Urinary Disease
- Internal Infections
- Diseases of the heart, liver, gallbladder, endocrine system, etc.
MVA is well equipped to provide the best veterinary care for your Forest Park pet in times of illness. If they are having ongoing health issues, please contact us so we can help.
During your pet’s exam appointment, your vet will take time to answer your questions and ask some of their own to better understand your pet’s overall condition. Our goal is to work together with you, so we can make sure your companion gets the highest level of care they need to live a long and healthy life.
The comprehensive exam is essential, but it only gives us so much information about your pet. Annual blood, fecal, and urine testing can alert our team to potentially threatening changes in your pet’s condition. We can look for abnormal blood values, organ function, and other issues to identify and treat disease as early as possible.
