What to Expect

What to expect with your new pet

When you are looking for a veterinary care clinic you should be able to count on superior care and excellent service. We at Kem Road Animal Hospital in Marion, IN have assembled an expert team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible healthcare for your pet. We have a state of the art veterinary facility which is clean, comfortable, and efficient.

At least once a year you should take your pet in for a check-up. This will include a full physical exam of your pet from head to tail, including a thorough examination of the eyes, ears, teeth, heart, lungs, abdomen, body condition and hair coat.

Bring in any medical history you have of your pet when you come to Kem Road Animal Hospital. It's best to keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts. If you have something like this, share it with our team. If not, let us know everything that you think will be important. Our doctors can still work with whatever information you have.

Our veterinarians are calm, compassionate and willing to explain all the procedures your pet undergoes. Our qualified staff and facilities are set up to undertake surgery and perform procedures requiring anesthesia, such as teeth cleaning. Because of the general risks inherent to anesthesia, especially for very old, very young or very ill pets, your veterinarian will likely suggest an exam and lab work of blood and maybe even urine, before your pet is anesthetized. Antibiotics may be necessary before and after any procedure.

In some circumstances, one of our doctors may refer you to a specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine or surgery.
