Wellness Checks

Animals need routine physical exams. During a checkup, we will look for any indication of a disease or illness. We will also check if your pet is at a healthy weight and recommend any necessary treatments, such as vaccinations or parasite prevention. You should schedule checkups at least once per year.

Fleas and Ticks

Pets are very prone to fleas and ticks, and it can be challenging to get rid of them once your pet has them. They are not only a nuisance, but cause lots of skin irritation, can transmit disease, and can make your pet's coat look dirty and matted. In addition, it can be scalding during Arkansas summers, making prevention even more critical. Luckily, fleas and ticks are prevented by applying topical medications year-round. We can assist you with this during your pet's annual exam. In addition, the earlier you catch fleas or ticks, the easier they are to treat successfully.


Vaccinations are an essential part of preventative care for pets. Vaccines help protect pets from various illnesses, including rabies, distemper, parvovirus, feline leukemia virus (FeLV), and many more. By immunizing your pet with the recommended vaccine schedule, you can be confident that it will remain safe from harm and enjoy a long and happy life.

Our trained veterinarians at North Hills Animal Hospital will assess your pet's health history and lifestyle to determine their necessary vaccinations. We provide thorough physical exams before vaccine administration to ensure your pet's safety. Additionally, we offer customized vaccine protocols tailored to meet specific lifestyle requirements.
