Wellness Care for Small Animals in Lockhart, TX

Preventive care doesn’t just save you money—it can save your pet’s life! At Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic of Lockhart, we offer wellness exams, check-ups, preventive care, and our full range of veterinary services to help our patients achieve optimal health at all ages.


Regular wellness check-ups are essential for early disease detection. We offer wellness exams tailored to your pet’s age, health, and unique needs to keep your pet’s health on track.


First we have a look. Your pet’s wellness exam begins with a detailed look at your pet’s eyes, ears, mouth, and skin. By visually examining your pet, our veterinarians can view your pet’s overall health and any health changes. We’ll also keep tabs on any lesions, diseases, parasites, or abnormalities during this part of the exam.

Then we have a listen. Using a stethoscope, our veterinarians at Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic at Lockhart will closely listen to your pet’s heart and lungs. If any breathing difficulties or heartbeat irregularities occur, diagnostic tests may be ordered.

Next, we feel for abnormalities. In this part of the exam, our veterinarians will press on your pet’s abdomen to check for any organ pain or swelling. After your pet’s organs have been checked, we’ll check your pet’s joints for any signs of arthritis or deformity.

After, we have a talk. You understand your pet more than anyone, so our veterinarians will ensure to hear about your pet’s behavior and health straight from you. We’ll ask questions about your pet’s eating, sleeping, and playtime habits, then listen carefully to any questions or concerns you may have.


After your pet’s wellness exam, our veterinarians will create a thoughtful course of action to keep your pet in top physical shape.

Our preventive care often includes:

  • Counseling. Advice to keep your pet healthy and happy through behavioral and nutritional counseling services.
  • Parasite control. From itchy fleas to life-threatening heartworms, parasite control is crucial to keeping your pets healthy, particularly in the state fo Texas. Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic of Lockhart is fully equipped to test for and treat all types of parasites.
  • Vaccinations. Vaccines are a vital component of disease prevention. We’ll create a custom vaccination scheduled suited to your pet’s specific needs.
  • Diagnostic screenings. During routine wellness exams, your pet may need to give a blood, fecal, or urine sample. The samples are analyzed in our in-house lab for signs of abnormalities or disease. Over time, these tests also act as a baseline for your pet’s health so future changes can be detected.


At Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic of Lockhart, we advocate for a well-rounded approach to health. For this reason, we give extra attention to your pet’s teeth, hygiene, and skin as part of a thorough preventive care plan.

  • Dentistry. Yes, clean teeth keep your pet’s breath fresh, but dental cleanings also prevent gum disease and ultimately organ damage.
  • Allergy testing and dermatology. Scratching and rashes don’t have to be part of your pet’s everyday life! Bring your pet to Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic for allergy testing to determine the culprit for your pet’s skin issues. Your pet will find relief before you know it.
