What to Expect with Pet Exams
Pet exams are the perfect opportunity to fully assess your pet’s well-being and for you to discuss any changes in their health, behavior, or lifestyle. Your pet's needs will change as they age, so we tailor every visit to meet those needs. At your wellness appointment, you can expect the following:
Our veterinarians are genuinely passionate about pet health. During a pet exam, they take all the time needed to fully assess your pet, address any issues, and answer all of your questions.
We’ll do a nose-to-tail exam to check for any abnormalities, as well as give them a body condition score which helps us determine if their weight is ideal.
Depending on your pet’s age and lifestyle, we’ll perform a range of diagnostic tests including complete blood counts, blood chemistry panels, fecal exams, urinalyses, etc. By catching diseases early, we’re better able to effectively treat the condition.
We’ll provide any needed vaccine boosters and discuss any lifestyle changes that may warrant more or fewer vaccines.
Dental care is vital to your pet's well-being. We'll evaluate their dental health and give you recommendations on home dental care as well as professional cleanings as needed.
Your pet’s diet will change as they age, meaning no single diet will work for their entire life! We can give you suggestions for a healthy diet and proper exercise that meet your individual pet’s needs.
Does your pet have bad manners or other behavioral problems? Behavioral problems can cause a rift in your relationship with your pet, but we can help! Mend your relationship with your pet and build a stronger bond by asking us about behavioral counseling at your next visit.
