How do you know if your pet is healthy if they can’t talk to you? An annual wellness exam could have all the answers. Like humans, pets should come in to see us for a wellness check-up at least once a year. Some pets, depending on factors such as age, breed, and underlying conditions, may need to see us more often. Our team of expert veterinarians will let you know how often you and your pet will need to come in to see us.
The important thing about wellness care is that it acts as a preventative treatment. Your pet’s wellness exam includes a nose-to-tail physical exam, leaving no paw unturned. The physical exam gives us a lot of information about your pet’s current state of health. Taken together with our diagnostic testing, we will be able to identify early markers of diseases or other conditions that could affect your pet without intervention. We take great care to build a profile of your pet’s health so that, should they fall ill or get injured, we have a clear and accurate medical history. This saves us time when treating your pet for these problems, which results in better outcomes for your pet.
Wellness exams also give us the opportunity to update your pet’s vaccinations, which can help protect them from communicable diseases. We will also update your pet’s parasite prevention measures to keep them pest-free and happy. Our goal with wellness exams is to give your pet everything they need to enjoy a happy, healthy life by your side.
