General Medicine and Services
Examinations - At Texas Animal Medical Center, we offer comprehensive examinations that help evaluate the overall health of your pet. Regular physical examinations can detect problems in their early stages, before they become serious illnesses requiring prolonged treatment. Preventative medicine is the easiest, least expensive and most important way to keep your pet healthy. Early detection ensures prompt action that may solve the problem before serious consequences occur.
Vaccines - Immunizations are a crucial part of your pet's health care. Most immunizations are recommended yearly while others are given boosters every 6 months. Usually administered during an annual exam, we work with you to develop an individual vaccine protocol that best suits your pet's needs.
Nutritional Counseling - Proper diet is an important part of your pet's health. Should your pet need a new diet due to health concerns or you are just looking for a healthy alternative to your current brand, we offer individual consultations and nutritional plans to help keep your pet healthy.

Dentistry - Clean teeth and healthy gums are essential to your pet's health. Infections are more common in the mouth because they can go undetected for long periods of time.
