Primary & Preventative Pet Care

At Urbanvet, we are committed to offering the best primary and preventative care services for pets in Newport Beach, California.

Comprehensive Overall Health Exams

Routine check-ups are the best defense against diseases, injury, and parasites like fleas and tapeworms, among many other preventable problems. Detecting health issues in their early stages significantly increases the chances of successful resolution. This is great news for your pet’s well-being, as a greater chance of success means less difficulty.

Whether it’s your first time bringing in your furry friend or a returning visit, our experienced veterinarians will perform a comprehensive overall health examination during your first or annual visit. We encourage our clients to discuss specific issues they notice with their pets, such as diet, bathroom habits, activity level, etc. Our doctors will thoroughly examine, educate, and, when applicable, treat specific conditions to ensure your pet’s optimal health and well-being.

Expert Recommendations: Ensuring Longevity and Happiness

Experts recommend that dogs and cats should be examined at least once a year. We encourage more frequent exams for senior pets to address age-related concerns and maintain their vitality (> ~7 years old).
