Routine exams are an important part of wellness care. For most dogs and cats, we recommend annual examinations. Senior pets and companion animals who suffer from chronic illnesses, however, may need to be seen more frequently. These checkups provide an opportunity for us to prevent health problems and detect potentially devastating conditions early enough to treat them. We provide thorough examinations and look for warning signs of future problems. During the exam, we will examine your pet from nose to tail. We’ll check the coat, skin, and nails, look inside the ears and mouth, listen to the heart and lungs, palpate the abdomen, and more. Depending on our findings, we may perform additional tests.
Our vet also makes recommendations for lifestyle changes, administers vaccinations and more as needed to help your companion live their best possible life. Our wellness care services are intended to help dogs and cats stay healthy, and we will do whatever is necessary to ensure optimal well-being for your companion.
