Pet Exams

At Clairemont Village Pet Clinic in San Diego, CA, we offer exams that check for common pet diseases and other health conditions that are easier to treat when we catch them early. Knowing what will happen during your pet’s exam makes it easier to prepare for your pet’s first visit to our clinic. 


How Often Should You Bring Your Pet for a Wellness Exam?

It is best to bring your pet to a veterinariain as soon as possible. Even if your pet had an exam at the animal shelter or with their prior owner, you’ll still want to bring them to our office to make sure that nothing was missed. After that, you’ll usually bring your new pet in for a check-up once per year.

What Happens During a Pet Check-Up?

When you arrive for your pet’s first wellness exam, we’ll take a few minutes to help you finish up any necessary paperwork and let your pet get acquainted with our vet and other members of the staff. Once your pet is comfortable, we’ll conduct a thorough visual exam and look for issues that include obvious signs of fleas, hot spots, allergies, and other common issues. Depending upon your type of pet’s needs, we’ll also do some bloodwork and another testing to check for parasites and other diseases. 

What Common Pet Diseases Will a Vet Check for During the Exam?

Parasites are common in puppies and kittens. Left untreated, these can lead to weight loss and malnutrition that can impact your pet’s development. If our veterinarian identifies any health issues, treatment will begin immediately.

  • "Dr. Diamond,

    I know that I always tell you how wonderful you are to "Nala" and I. But just by the amount of patients you have tells me that other clients feel the same way! You never make us feel like you are rushed. You make sure that we know you care for each and every pet. I have raised many dogs and went to many vets in my lifetime. But never had such a wonderful vet as you. It is very hard to compare any vet to you, because you my friend, are in a class of your own! God bless you, Dr. Diamond. Thank you soooo much for caring about us."
    Sincerely, Michelle & "Nala"
  • "Dear Dr. Diamond and all of your wonderful pet angels,

    I was touched to receive your beautiful card and you all wrote messages! That is incredibly special.As you all are. I am so grateful for your loving expertise with caring for all our dogs, but especially Spike. He lived longer and better thanks to your care. May 28th was a shockingly sad day but I just kept focusing then and now on your kindness and gentleness."
