Hershey Veterinary Hospital Services
A complete physical examination is a crucial part of your pet’s health. Cats and dogs age much faster than humans and a physical examination can help to detect problems early, allowing for faster intervention and treatment. We recommend annual or semi-annual examinations depending on the age and health of your pet.
Vaccinations and Wellness Testing:
We offer a full line of high quality vaccinations to protect your pets. Vaccination protocols are tailored to individual pets based on age and exposure. We also offer a variety of in house wellness tests including:
