Medical Services

Complete physical examinations are important in keeping pets happy and healthy. The Raritan Animal Hospital recommends regular examinations and vaccination to ensure your pet’s well-being. Each patient has a full medical history taken by our veterinarian, followed by a complete physical exam. Vaccination recommendations are tailored to your individual pet. Regular heartworm and parasite prevention is recommended for all pets. Older pets (greater than 7 years of age) receive semi-annual exams and have routine blood screenings run to detect early signs of disease. Due to advances in veterinary medicine, many medical problems can be diagnosed and managed provided the disease is detected early. It is important to remember that pets age faster than people, and regular veterinary care is critical in ensuring a long, happy life for your pet.
