What to Expect During Pet Wellness Exams

During a standard wellness visit at our veterinary hospital, our team focuses on observing, evaluating, and maintaining your pet’s overall well-being. Our thorough examination includes checking vital signs, assessing physical condition, and addressing any concerns you may have about your pet’s behavior, activity level, or habits.

Personalized Care for Your Pet
We believe in providing individualized care tailored to your pet’s specific needs. That’s why we consider factors such as breed, age, health status, and lifestyle when determining the frequency of check-ups. By customizing our approach, we ensure your pet receives the personalized attention they deserve to thrive.

Comprehensive Examination by Our Veterinarians

  • Physical Examination: We will carefully examine your pet from nose to tail, checking for any signs of illness or discomfort. We will also assess your pet’s weight, temperature, heart rate, and more.
  • Discussion of Pet’s Health History: We will ask questions about your pet’s activity level, behavior, eating habits, and any changes you may have noticed since the last visit. This helps us gain a comprehensive understanding of your pet’s overall health.
  • Individualized Recommendations: Our veterinarians will provide personalized recommendations for preventive care, including vaccinations, parasite control, and nutrition, based on your pet’s breed, age, health status, and lifestyle.
  • Diagnostic Testing (if necessary): Depending on your pet’s age and health status, our veterinarians may recommend diagnostic tests such as blood work, urinalysis, or imaging to assess your pet’s internal health.

Benefits of Pet Wellness Exams

  • Early Detection of Health Issues: By detecting potential health problems early, we can intervene sooner and provide appropriate treatment, leading to better outcomes for your pet.
  • Preventive Care: Wellness exams allow us to administer preventive treatments, such as vaccinations and parasite control, which protect your pet against common diseases and parasites.
  • Establishing a Baseline: Regular check-ups help establish a baseline for your pet’s health, making it easier to detect changes over time.
  • Peace of Mind: Knowing that your pet is receiving regular preventive care can provide peace of mind for pet owners, knowing they’re doing everything possible to keep their furry companions healthy and happy.

When to Schedule a Pet Wellness Exam

We recommend scheduling a pet wellness exam at least once a year for adult pets and more frequently for senior pets or those with ongoing health concerns. However, the frequency of visits may vary based on your pet’s individual needs, so be sure to follow the recommendations provided by our veterinary team.
