When your pet suffers, you suffer. Most pet illness and suffering can be avoided by regular pet wellness exams in Gary. Glen Park Animal Hospital, the superior veterinarian in Gary, also serving Marriville, Hammond and Griffith, is passionate about keeping pets healthy. Preventative care of all our patients, which centers around the yearly wellness exam, is crucial for your pet’s good health
Pet wellness exams in Gary are a method of veterinary practice where we examine your pet on a regular basis – yearly for adult pets and more frequently for younger and older ones –to detect and treat anything brewing that could develop into something serious. Early detection means early treatment leading to more successful outcomes as well as much less expense for you. Also, regular exams allow us to follow your pet’s health throughout his or her lifetime.
Your pet’s annual wellness exam with our Gary veterinarian is akin to your yearly physical. We perform a thorough hands-on physical where we:
In addition to a thorough hands-on exam, next in a pet check up in Gary is pet vaccines, which safeguard pets against dangerous and even deadly diseases. These pet vaccines need to be administered yearly after your kitten or puppy has developed a basic immunity through more frequent vaccinations. A vaccine actually contains a very small amount of the bacteria or virus that then equips the immune system to fight against and protect your pet from these diseases.
A diagnostic as well as baseline aid is pet bloodwork. Often during pet exams, our Gary veterinarian will take and measure your pet’s blood to check the complete blood cell count (CBC) as well as a full chemistry panel. The results of the pet bloodwork can indicate if your pet suffers from anemia, infection or organ illness.
Parasites are not only annoying but also carry a host of perilous diseases. Another important part of the pet wellness exam in Gary is detection, prevention, and if necessary, treatment of parasite infestation in your pet. The stool sample tells us if your pet has intestinal parasites, which can be readily treated with medication. Flea and tick prevention is easy with a variety of topical or ingested products. Heartworm testing and prevention keeps your pet from acquiring a parasite that literally strangles the internal organs.
It’s simple: we want to see your pet healthy as much as you do. Call us to schedule your beloved companion for pet wellness in Gary, Marriville, Hammond, and Griffith.

I have been bringing all of my dogs to Glen Park Animal Hospital for the past 20 years and have found their service to be excellent! I am a nurse and have found that the care, competency and compassion that the entire staff gives to the animals is as good as (and in some instances even better than) the "human doctors/hospitals"!! Dr. Larson explains everything and does good follow-up with my "fur-babies". You can tell that the entire staff loves their job!
