Pre-Purchase Exams

Pre-Purchase Exams

We understand completely the excitement – and the worry – that comes with adopting a new pet. That’s why Alto Tiburon Veterinary Hospital offers Pre-Purchase Exams as part of our comprehensive suite of services.

What is a Pre-Purchase Exam exactly? It’s an opportunity for you to discuss with a trusted animal care provider any concerns you might have about your potential new furry family member.

These exams typically include:

  • Breed education
  • Bloodwork
  • Screenings for parasites and kennel cough
  • An ECG
  • Optional COVID testing
  • Examination of parentage if available

You and your veterinarian might also discuss the ins and outs of pet insurance, as well as dietary recommendations.

The main reason we conduct Pre-Purchase Exams is that we believe, before you take the leap of adopting a new pet, you should be as informed as possible. To schedule one, give us a call at (415) 383-7700.
