Pet Medical Exams & Assessments in Cottonwood Heights, UT

The team at UPVH is pleased to offer the following Medical Exams & Assessments services.

Wellness & Vaccination Programs
During your annual physical exam, your veterinarian fully examines your pet and discusses vaccinations and ongoing wellness. Just like you do wellness visits with your doctor, it’s important that your pet does the same. During these visits, our team will spend time examining your pet from nose to tail.
Parasite Prevention and Treatment
You may not always be able to tell if your pet has parasites. Fleas can hide under your pet’s fur, and some ticks are very tiny (only the size of a pinhead), so they are very difficult to find. Intestinal parasites like roundworms can cause diarrhea, vomiting, dehydration, and other problems, but some infected pets don’t show any signs at all.

Veterinary examinations and parasite testing are important ways to protect your pet’s health. Let our knowledgeable staff provide you with a comprehensive parasite control program. We can recommend a schedule for parasite testing, discuss what signs of parasites you can look for at home, review ways to control parasites in and around your home, discuss treatment options if your pet has parasites, and recommend ways to control and prevent parasites in the future.

Work closely with your veterinarian to find the consultation service for you and your pet. We provide nutritional consults, cardiology and heart health consults, dermatology consults, and endocrinology and metabolic disorder consults.
Geriatric Care and Wellness Programs
To assist in maintaining a good quality of life as your cat or dog ages, our vets provide your senior pet with routine preventative care and early diagnosis throughout their golden years. Our veterinarians are here to help your geriatric pet maintain their optimal health by identifying and proactively treating health issues as they emerge and while they are at their most treatable before they become long-term problems.
Microchips are tiny electronic devices, about the size of a grain of rice, that use radio waves to transmit identification information. Pet microchips store unique identification numbers that show once the chip is scanned. This number can be reported to the appropriate microchip company where the owners’ contact information is stored. Microchips are made of a material that is compatible with body tissues, so rejection and infection at the site of microchip injection are rare.
Diagnostic Laboratory Services
Our team of veterinarians and veterinary technicians use state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment to ensure your pet’s condition is accurately and confidently measured.
Digital Radiology

Radiology (x-rays) is routinely used to provide valuable information about a pet’s bones, gastrointestinal tract (stomach, intestines, colon), respiratory tract (lungs), heart, and genitourinary system (bladder, prostate). It can be used alone or in conjunction with other diagnostic tools to provide a list of possible causes for a pet’s condition, identify the exact cause of a problem or rule out possible problems.
