What is a Pet Wellness Exam?
Pet wellness exams are comprehensive examinations of your pet’s whole body. From tip to tail, we will examine bodily structures, looking for abnormalities or unusual development. Routine exams are crucial, whether your animal is only a few weeks old or is fully settled into the geriatric years. With a routine exam, you can catch diseases and health conditions early, giving us the best possible chance of treatment.
What is Done at a Pet Wellness Exam?
At a pet wellness exam, we will take note of your pet’s stats, talk to you about his or her health and any concerns you might have, and make our own inspection using our eyes, hands and noninvasive implements. If we find anything unusual or notice a procedure that needs to occur, we will recommend this to you and set up an appointment for additional services if we can’t get them done that day. These might include:
- X-rays & Ultrasound
- Lab Tests
- Dental Care
- Spay & Neuter Surgery
- Dermatology Examinations and Treatment
- Nutritional Counseling
… and more. When we recommend any of these, we will tell you exactly why and explain what you’ll get out of it so you can make the most informed decision.
How to Prepare Your Pet for a Wellness Exam?
If you have an exam coming up, be sure to make note of all questions you want to ask your vet. Include health concerns, feeding instructions and so on. Fill out forms ahead of time, if possible, and bring your pet on a leash or in a carrier to make transportation easier and help you control them in the waiting room, where other animals are likely to be present.
