Animals of all kinds need consistent, regular professional medical attention throughout their lives. Veterinary wellness checkups enable you to help ensure that your pet receives the proper diagnostic, examination and preventative treatments necessary to ensure optimal health on a daily basis.
Annual Wellness Checkups
When your pet gets their annual wellness checkup, here’s what you can expect. First, your pet will be checked over in a general way that starts with a physical examination. This is done to help catch any potential future problems such as dental disease, growths or lumps, any areas of pain or discomfort etc.
During the visit, you’ll discuss your pet’s health at home, and you’ll have the opportunity to convey anything that may be concerning you, such as changes in behavior or appetite, or anything else that’s changed since the last visit. Your vet will also ask you specific questions in order to highlight common potential issues, as well as to get a better sense of the animal’s lifestyle at home.
Next, your pet’s file will be carefully reviewed, with an eye toward ensuring that all preventative treatments and any local government mandated animal treatments such as Rabies vaccines, are brought up to date during the annual wellness checkup. These may include things like:
- Dietary recommendations
- Parasite testing and prevention
If your pet has a current annual exam, then we can provide additional services via Technician appointments, such as:
- Blood testing
- Heartworm testing
- Nail Trims
- Additional vaccines
- Sanitary grooming
- Weight checks
Senior Pet Care
Older pets often develop a range of age-related issues, such as loss of appetite, mobility challenges and failing eyesight. Veterinary wellness checkups support the healthy aging of your beloved pet to help ensure quality of life for as long as possible. We are equipped to assist in keeping pets comfortable in their golden years, and we understand the challenges that come with living with senior pets. Through diagnostics such as x-rays, in combination with a variety of medications, we can assist in improving mobility issues in our older companions. By monitoring internal organ function with blood chemistry panels regularly, we can help with extending the lives of our furry loved ones.
