Your pet’s veterinary care is extremely important to the team at Edmond East Animal Hospital. We understand that every pet is an individual. We determine each pet’s health care needs through personalized physical examinations and considerations about each pet’s age, lifestyle, breed, and health condition. Click on the headers below to read more about the expectations for each pet’s life stage.
Puppies and Kittens
When you are the new owner of a puppy or kitten, we recommend they be brought in right away for a complete physical examination with Dr. Johnson. Examining your new pet helps us to determine whether there is any cause for concern, and allows us to establish a health care plan that gets your new friend started on the right paw. Early health care for puppies and kittens includes:
- Physical examination
- Any necessary vaccines, often needed to be completed in multiple visits (3-4 in the first 4 months of life)
- Deworming and fecal examinations
- Spay or neuter at approximately 5-6 months of age
- Pet owner education about needs including diet, dental care, training, regular grooming needs, and more
When your pet reaches adulthood, their care may be less individualized in favor of routine check-ups. These routine examinations will help us determine if anything about their health is out of the ordinary and needs special attention. Vaccines, however, will be personalized for each pet’s individual needs and lifestyle. Care for adult pets includes:
- Regular physical examinations
- Preventive care and testing for parasites and diseases
- Preventive dental care
- Nutritional advice for weight management, if needed
- Diagnostic testing, as recommended by Dr. Johnson, to help with early detection of diseases or health conditions
- Specialized treatment for any identified health concerns
Senior pets have the most individualized health care needs of all pet life stages. Our pets are classified as seniors at different ages, depending on their breed, size, and previous health conditions. For dogs, the senior years may begin anywhere around age 7 to age 8, while with cats, it is generally between ages 10 and 11. Dr. Johnson can help you determine if your pet is a senior. He can examine your pet and consider their appropriate health care needs. For senior pets, care often includes:
- Regular physical examinations
- Diagnostic testing, including metabolic blood work screens
- An increased emphasis on dental care
- Early detection testing for conditions such as heart disease and kidney disease
- Pain management treatment
Quality of Life
The end of your pet’s journey can be one of the most difficult times for a pet owner, and our team is here to support you. We can provide counseling for you about your pet’s health and your expectations for them, individualized conversations about your pet’s quality of life, and recommendations for each pet’s specific needs. We promise to be compassionate and understanding with you as you make important decisions for your pet and honor them during their last days.
This place is the best from the veterinarians to the staff. We are so happy we found this place. My 9 dogs, 3 cats and bird are happy patients and say thank you.
The best vet in Edmond! Seriously the cleanest and cutest office! Dr Johnson and his staff were so incredibly helpful, and fit Sadie in and she is on the mend!
Edmond East does a wonderful job with Bon. Like every dog, Bon hates going to the vet but he is relaxed and calm when going here. Plus he gets top-notch vet care. I highly recommend Edmond East.
I simply love each and every person there!!! Never had a vet that loved my pets as much as me and were so friendly and caring!!! Thank you for making our move better!
We absolutely love Dr. Johnson and his staff. They take great care of our Watson and make us feel like family as soon as we walk through the door.
Hands down the best place ever..Our Babies love them too!!
I love everything about Edmond East! They have amazing doctors, outstanding staff and a fabulous facility!
I highly recommend this animal hospital. I felt very comfortable and they did such a wonderful job checking the lump on my Guinea Pig. They were very careful and sweet when handling him. Really awesome place! Will be returning there for sure!
They treat you and your loved ones like family! They have been so generous and kind to our babies(we are forever grateful). We will never have the need to look for another Vet. This practice, this family rocks!!
You could not get better Veterinarians! Known these 2 for years and we are blessed to have them back in Oklahoma! Welcome Home!
Dr. Rex and the whole Staff are great. Very helpful and caring group.
Dr. Johnson and his staff didn't give up when it came to figuring out what was wrong with our Duke. They are so caring and so very understanding when it comes to your concerns and it does not feel that it is all about the money but rather about the well being of your pet. They have definitely earned my business!
Thanks for taking such good care of Fancy's leg. She's such a sweet dog we love her to pieces, and she will live out her life as a princess!!!
Always reasonably priced, caring, and excellent customer service!!
