At Rock Knoll Animal Hospital in Oklahoma City, we provide quality health care for your pets. Whether it is a wellness check-up or an emergency, our staff is dedicated to providing the best possible care for your pet. Let’s take a look at some of the services that we provide to the pet community in Oklahoma City.
Our annual wellness check-ups begin with a thorough exam. Our veterinarian will do the following:
- Look at the pet's eyes, nose, and mouth
- Listen to the pet's heart and lungs
- Examine the pet's skin and fur for signs of allergies
- Observe your pet's movements
Each of these steps helps our staff determine the best wellness plan for your pet.
Maintaining your pet's vaccination schedule is crucial to a long and healthy life. Without immunization, pets can contract serious illnesses such as rabies or distemper that can lead to death. As part of the wellness check-up, we will make sure your pets are up-to-date on all of their vaccinations.
Helping pets maintain a healthy weight is essential to their well-being. Overweight or obese pets are prone to serious health concerns such as diabetes. During the annual visit, our staff will check your pet's weight. If your pet is overweight, Dr. Payne will create a diet and exercise program to get your pet to a healthy weight.
Some preventative regimes require medication. Flea and tick prevention methods include collars, liquids, or pills. Heartworm medication protects against the parasites that threaten a pet's health. All of these can be purchased as part of your pet’s annual wellness appointment.

As part of our urgent care services, we can perform ultrasounds, x-rays, and other diagnostics to ensure your pet receives the proper care. If the emergency occurs during normal business hours, we will address it as quickly as possible.
