Wellness Exams

Your pet’s health is always our number one priority, which is why for most pets we recommend annual pet wellness exams to ensure that your animal companion remains in good health. If your pet is a senior–over seven for dogs, over nine for cats–we strongly suggest twice-yearly exams and blood screenings. That’s because pets age more rapidly than humans, meaning disease and illness develop faster as well.

For pet wellness exams in the D.C. area, trust District Veterinary Hospital – Brookland’s veterinarian-performed physical exams to comprehensively assess every aspect of your pet’s health.
