Wellness Exams

Our pets are a part of our family, and every owner wants to ensure that their pets are in the very best of health. Most conditions that animals are susceptible to have no obvious signs early on, and many pets instinctually hide illness and injury. Once you see the symptoms, it’s likely your pet has already been suffering and may by then require extensive medical assistance. The best way to avoid that is with regular wellness exams!

We recommend a nose-to-tail physical exam at least once per year for adult pets and then every six months for senior pets. If you’ve recently adopted or purchased a pet, then we advise you that you book an appointment for their first examination within the first few weeks of ownership. Younger animals are very vulnerable to illness and this will allow us to make sure they have the vaccinations they need, reassure you of their health, and give us a starting point for their medical records.

Your pet’s comprehensive physical examination will include some or all of the following:

  • Temperature and weight
  • Eyes, ears, and mouth
  • Heart and lungs
  • Abdomen and skin
  • Bones and joints
  • Teeth/Dental health
  • Blood tests – establishes health of internal organs and systems, checks for parasites
