Pet Wellness Exam
Prevention is critical for your pet’s long-term health and well-being. Regular examinations are needed to assess the overall health, identify any changes in health, and update you on any advances in veterinary medicine. During the exam, your pet will receive a comprehensive examination, recommendations for vaccination based on lifestyle, and any additional testing to identify underlying diseases.
Healthy adult pets (1 to 7 years old) should receive yearly exams, and senior pets (> 7 years old) and pets with chronic health issues should receive, at a minimum, a bi-annual exam. Please watch for any changes in appetite, weight, water intake, frequency of urination, activity, attitude, behavior, sleep habits, limping, or lumps under the skin. When your pet becomes a senior, we will recommend baseline bloodwork to either establish normal values for your pet or identify
health problems in their early stages.
Puppies and kittens will require more frequent examinations, and discussions will cover behavior, training, and nutrition. Some vaccines, when first given, need multiple boosters; therefore, it is essential to limit exposure until your pet is fully vaccinated.
