What to Expect from A Pet Exam
Pet wellness exams serve several important functions: They help us, and you, understand your pet’s health better. Exams also enable our vet team to catch a potential illness or infection early in its development, when it can be treated more easily and cause less harm to your pet. Additionally, wellness exams give us information to help you maintain your pet’s health and quality of life and make educated decisions about their care going forward. The better you understand your pet’s health and needs, the happier and healthier they’ll be.
A typical pet wellness exam includes:
A nose-to-tail examination, including a reading of your pet’s heart, lungs, weight, and temperature
Vaccinations, if needed
Preventative blood and fecal testing
A conversation about your pet’s nutrition and our recommendations
Treating any current medical conditions
Answering any and all questions you may have about your pet
The Importance of Parasite Prevention
Fleas, ticks and heartworms can cause serious illness in pets, and some illnesses, such as Lyme disease, can potentially get passed to your human family members. With regular wellness exams, our team can perform testing to ensure your pet is parasite-free and recommend the appropriate preventatives to protect your pet all year round. If we find any evidence of parasites, we can administer treatment right away and help you take the necessary preventative measures to keep parasites at bay.
