We recommend a complete physical examination for all pets on their first visit to us. One of our veterinarians will check your pet from nose to tail. This enables us to establish a baseline of what is normal for your pet’s health. Our veterinarians recommend an annual physical examination for all pets. Senior pets and pets with certain medical conditions are recommended to have more frequent examinations. The physical exam provides clues to the existence of problems, and often leads to the recommendation of diagnostic testing such as radiographs or blood testing to more clearly identify the problem.
The examination involves looking the animal over from head-to-toe, feeling for bumps and lumps both inside and outside the body; checking ears with an otoscope to see down in the canal; checking eyes with an ophthalmoscope; checking for tooth or gum disease, and listening to the heart and lungs for any sign of illness.
Bring Your Medical History
Bring in any and all medical history you have of your pet when you come for your pet’s first visit. Previous history can be very beneficial to our veterinarians. Your pet’s vaccination history is also necessary, so we know what diseases he or she is protected against. If you have something like this, share it with our team. If not, let us know, and we can contact your previous vet clinic and request a copy.
We at World of Animals at Elkins Park have assembled a caring team of veterinary professionals to bring you the best possible care for your pet. Our veterinary facility is clean, comfortable, and well equipped. Call 215-635-2700 to schedule an appointment that is convenient for you.

Meet Our Vets
Saying goodbye to an old companion is one of the most difficult things to do…. Yet today I was forced to say farewell to my faithful friend ‘Montgomery’…. an 8.5 yr old Havanese. Thankfully, I was surrounded by veterinary staff who genuinely cared for my boy. They offered me space and time to grieve, and […]
My puppy is a bit skittish. Dr. Tancredi spent all the time it took to make him comfortable. I got a call the following day to make sure he was ok with his shot and treatments. It meant a lot to me.
Thank you Dr. Platt for your kind and excellent treatment of my elder boy, Jesse, during his dental surgery this week! You helped in so many ways – by putting me at ease, by putting Jesse at ease and by your outstanding veterinary care. I’m so glad we found you!
