Benefits of Wellness Exams
Routine wellness exams help develop and establish a baseline for your pet's health. The benefits of regular wellness exams are to catch early signs for conditions and diseases long before symptoms start showing. Additionally, routine checkups with the same veterinarian help your pet be more comfortable receiving veterinary care.
Keep an eye out for any signs your pet may be in pain, have parasites, or anything abnormal developing on their skin. Keeping your pet healthy and maintaining routine wellness exams helps ensure he or she lives a long and happy life. Schedule an appointment with our veterinarian for a proper assessment of your pet's health and to discuss any concerns you may have.
What to Expect During a Routine Pet Exam
A comprehensive pet wellness exam may include various types of pet services. Common aspects of a pet wellness exam include:
- Assessing heart and lung health
- Examining the pet's oral health
- Checking the eyes and ears
- Assessment of the pet's joint health and performance
- Blood work
- Parasite control
Exercise is key to keeping your pet healthy. Routine walks and playtime can help keep your pet active. In addition, an active pet has less risk of becoming obese or suffering from diseases commonly associated with inactivity.
Nutrition is just as important as exercise in your pet's life. A well-balanced diet without excess snacking or human food can help maintain your pet's health. Speak with our veterinarian to discuss your pet's nutritional needs and if you should put him or her on a specific diet.
