Regular wellness exams allow your veterinarian to evaluate your pet’s general health and become aware of any health problems before they become serious illnesses. Since your pet cannot vocalize his feelings, you must rely on regular physical examinations by a veterinarian and your at-home observations to assess your pet’s health. Your veterinarian may also wish to perform diagnostic tests, including blood tests and/or x-rays, to evaluate your pet’s health.
Similar to people, pets need to visit the veterinarian more often as they get older in order to prevent and treat illnesses that come with age. AAHA recommends that healthy dogs and cats visit the veterinarian once a year for a complete exam and laboratory testing. Healthy senior dogs and cats should receive a wellness exam and lab testing every six months. Depending on your pet’s age and health, your veterinarian will suggest an appropriate physical examination schedule to help keep your pet in tip-top shape.
We will request a complete history of your pet’s health. Don’t forget to mention any unusual behavior that you have noticed in your pet, including:
Eating more than usual
Excessive drinking of water, panting, scratching or urination
Weight gain or weight loss
Our affordable monthly payment plans make it easy to say yes to all of the care your pets need.
Your pet’s regular wellness visits are about so much more than just another round of vaccinations, although those are important too! By adhering to your pet’s schedule of exams, you are increasing the chances that any health problems will be caught and treated before they turn into something more serious. Wellness visits can save you time, money, and possibly even heartbreak.
Each Petly Plan package is tailored to your pet. It covers everything you come in for anyway at a discounted rate and it breaks the payments up over a year. That way you have 12 easy monthly payments instead of one large bill. You also have many other benefits that include discounts on non-package items, affordable co-pay visits to the office and unlimited free nail trims.

From spay and neuter services to more complex veterinary surgical procedures, including soft tissue surgery, orthopedic surgery and limited neurosurgery, Lindale Veterinary Clinic always operates with safety in mind. In fact, we use many of the same safety measures as human hospitals. Performing most of the pre‐surgery blood work at our in-house lab, we are able to make sure your pet is healthy enough for the procedure.
Depending on the urgent nature of the surgery, pre‐surgical abnormalities will be addressed, drug selections may be modified and sometimes surgeries are postponed or even canceled until the surgical team feels the surgery is safe to perform.
In addition to constant supervision by the surgery technician, your pet will also be monitored with state-of-the-art equipment, including an ECG, a non-invasive blood pressure monitor and a pulse oximeter. Rest assured, only the safest, most effective and latest anesthetic and pain-control protocols are utilized. Your family’s best friend deserves expert veterinary surgical care. We offer the highest level of surgical expertise and specialized care for your pets.
For more than 20 years, Lindale Veterinary Clinic has served as a surgical center throughout the east Texas area. Our entire team of veterinary experts has specialty training, and our experienced staff offers a wide range of services under one roof.
Grooming / Nail Care
Good grooming will help your dog look and feel his best. Routine grooming sessions allow us to examine your dog's coat, teeth, eyes, ears, and nails for signs of problems. Fur that becomes matted can cause serious health issues for your pet. Dirt and oils can accumulate under mats and cause painful skin infections, and the mats themselves can be painful as they pull and stretch the skin underneath. Severe matting can even affect your pet’s ability to see, walk and eat normally. For dogs and cats, long nails can become painful and interfere with their ability to walk. Keeping nails short also helps you protect your floors and furniture from being scratched and your clothes from being snagged.
Regular veterinary dental care is one of the most important ways to promote pet health. Lindale V et Clinic will help you develop the best dental plan for your pet. This includes professional teeth cleaning for dogs and cats, any necessary extractions, as well as diet, pet nutrition and recommendations for a good at‐home dental care routine.
Periodontal disease can be prevented, treated and even reversed if caught early. Together, you and LVC can protect your pet against the havoc of periodontal disease, such as heart disease and kidney failure, by maintaining your pet's dental health.
