Your pet needs to be evaluated to assess their general health and have routine diagnostic procedures performed to become aware of any health problems before they can become a serious illness. And since your pet can’t tell you about any symptoms they are having, it is even more important that they be examined on a regular basis to uncover any potential problems.
Young and middle-aged pets in good health should receive an exam annually. Pets with specific health conditions and older pets may need to be seen more frequently. We will discuss this with you during the examination.
Your pet’s wellness exam will include the following:
- • A discussion of your pet’s history since their last exam, including their diet, exercise routine
and any unusual behavior or symptoms you have noticed
- • Measurement and recording of their vital statistics such as body weight, temperature and pulse
- • A complete physical examination including dental health
- • Discussion and treatment recommendations for flea and tick control
- • Routine diagnostic testing
- • Additional diagnostic testing based on findings from the history and physical examination
- • Vaccinations against specific diseases based on your pet’s environment and lifestyle
- • Recommendations to consider to improve the health of your pet
We want to help your pet live a long and healthy life. Regular wellness exams give us the information we need to provide the care to support this goal.
