Why Should My Pet Receive a Preventive Exam?

We believe it pays to take a proactive approach to your animal's health rather than a reactive one because many diseases and infections that could threaten your pet's health are easily preventable. After a certain point, many issues become much harder to manage and almost never get better on their own. Early prevention is a key component to the happiness and longevity of your pet. Some aspects of our preventive treatments include:

What to Expect From Our Examinations & Pet Wellness Plans

On a surface level, it may seem like nothing is wrong with your pet, but underlying complications could still be developing. Our thorough pet examinations will work to ensure no dormant or developing conditions are missed or overlooked. We will examine your furry friend from head to tail, running additional bloodwork and fecal examinations for extra thoroughness.

We offer a comprehensive approach to wellness visits so every aspect of your pet's health is covered, and our services are tailored to their unique situation. Our procedures are personalized to your pet based on a number of factors like breed, lifestyle, size, and age. We will treat your senior pets, puppies, kittens, and pocket-sized animals with a gentle, respectful touch.

Some components of the examination process that help our team determine if your pets are healthy include:

  • Our vets will weigh your pet to determine if they're a healthy size based on their breed, lifestyle, and age
  • We will listen to your pet's heart and lungs for signs of irregularities, with the option of an ultrasound examination available
  • Our team will observe your pet's stance, ensuring they aren't putting unnecessary stress on certain joints or bones
  • We will examine your pet's eyes for any redness, cloudiness, or discharge
  • The vet will take a closer look inside your pet's ears for signs of bacterial infection, ear mites, and other potential complications
  • Our team examines your pet's teeth for gum disease or tooth decay
  • We will check the health of your pet's fur, looking for signs of bald patches, dandruff, and rashes or sores

Preventive Pet Examinations FAQ

Preventive measures are very important to your pet's longevity and quality of life. Our friendly team is ready to address your questions and concerns upon your arrival at our office. Some frequently asked questions regarding preventive pet examinations include:

Can I be present during my pet's exam?

Yes. It will mean the world to your pet if they get to see your loving, familiar face as they undergo an examination. The face of their beloved pet parent can bring them comfort and assurance, helping to keep their stress levels down while promoting a smooth process and the safety of our caring team.

Yearly bloodwork is an important component of a comprehensive preventive exam. Testing and examining your animal's blood once per year can determine red blood cell count, informing us if your pet suffers from anemia. It can also help measure organ function, hormone levels, and electrolyte status.

We can provide vaccinations to help your pet stay current on their required shots. If you aren't sure whether your animal is ready for a booster, we will evaluate their status and provide a timeframe for when they should receive their next vaccination.
