Our wellness programs are designed to ensure your pet’s health and happiness. Since our pets age more quickly than we do, regular exams allow your veterinarian to evaluate your pet’s overall health. We strive to prevent illness whenever possible because we understand that early diagnosis can lead to a longer, healthier life. We recommend that all healthy adult cats and dogs receive a complete physical examination at least annually. Your veterinarian will perform a comprehensive physical exam, answer any questions you may have, and update any vaccinations that are due at this time. We may recommend other diagnostics and treatments specific to your pet based on history, environment, breed, and examination findings.
Our comprehensive veterinary exam includes:
- A review of your pet’s medical history
- An ear and eye examination
- A dental exam
- Cardiopulmonary (Heart & Lung) analysis
- Abdominal palpation
- A dermatological (skin) exam
- Flea, tick, and other external parasite checks
- Orthopedic exam and gait evaluation
As part of your pet’s annual wellness exam, you can also discuss any minor changes you may have observed in your pet’s health or behavior. We will use this feedback about your pet’s health and habits at home, along with the findings of our complete veterinary examination, to outline a health plan that is unique to your pet. Your veterinarian may recommend vaccinations, dietary or exercise changes, laboratory tests, or lifestyle changes based on your pet’s age, health, and lifestyle.
