At Oradell Animal Hospital your pet’s health and well-being is our number one concern. Our veterinarians will take special care of your companions from birth through their senior years, handling all routine treatments and wellness care.

Annual physical examinations, bi-annually for geriatric pets, are recommended to keep an eye on your pet’s overall health and potentially detect problems before they turn into something serious.

We offer 3 convenient appointment locations – Paramus, Fort Lee, Hasbrouck Heights – Clients are free to use these locations interchangeably for all their pets’ primary care and wellness needs. All specialty and emergency services will be seen at Oradell Animal Hospital in Paramus, NJ, which is open and staffed 24/7/365.

The Wellness Examination

Your pet’s...

Abdomen will be palpated to detect abnormalities such as enlarged organs or masses. Other painful areas may indicate problems with the intestines, kidneys, liver or other organs.

Eyes will be examined to determine abnormalities, such as anemia, glaucoma, cataracts, high blood pressure, jaundice and allergies.

Heart will be examined for murmurs and abnormal rhythms.

Joints and muscles will be examined to detect the possible presence of inflammation, arthritis and tumors.

Lungs will be examined for fluid build-up, wheezing, and abnormal effort to breathe.

Lymph nodes will be palpated to detect the possible presence of inflammation and swelling

Oral cavity (gums, teeth, tongue and palate) will be checked for tartar buildup, dental abnormalities, fractures, loose teeth, tumors, infections and other problems.

Reproductive system will be examined for swellings, discharges, and breast or testicular lumps. If your pet has not been spayed or neutered, our veterinarian will explain the health benefits of doing so.

Skin, ears and hair will be examined as a means of detecting allergies, infections, warts and tumors, fleas, ticks and other parasites.

Disease Prevention

Vaccination against infectious diseases has tremendous effects on reducing illness in your pet. At Oradell Animal Hospital, we will create a vaccination program based on your pet’s lifestyle and exposure to disease.

Core vaccines are generally recommended for all cats and dogs, and include:

  • For cats: panleukopenia, rabies, calicivirus and herpesvirus.
  • For dogs: distemper, rabies, parvovirus, adenovirus and bordetella.

Non-core vaccines are administered to your pet depending upon exposure, risk and lifestyle, and may include:

  • For cats: a vaccine that protects against leukemia virus
  • For dogs: protection against Lyme Disease,  Leptospirosis and canine influenza
