Wellness Exams

Regular wellness examinations are crucial for ensuring the health and well-being of our beloved pets. As pet owners, we all want our furry companions to live long, happy lives, and scheduling an annual check-up with your veterinarian is integral to achieving that goal!

One of the main reasons for regular wellness exams is that pets age much faster than humans. So, while we may only need to see a doctor every few years, pets should ideally have a wellness exam at least once a year. This allows us to catch any potential health issues early on and provide treatment before they become more serious.

During a wellness exam, we will thoroughly examine your pet, checking everything from their heart and lung functions to their joints, muscles, hearing, and vision. They will also assess your pet's overall health and well-being and provide any necessary preventive care, such as vaccinations or parasite control.

As pets age, they may require more frequent examinations. This is because older pets are more susceptible to specific health issues like arthritis, dental disease, and kidney problems. By monitoring your pet's health regularly, your veterinarian can catch these issues early and provide appropriate care to help manage them.

In addition to the physical examination, a wellness visit is an excellent opportunity to discuss any questions or concerns about your pet's health, behavior, or nutrition. Your veterinarian can provide guidance on a wide range of topics, from diet and exercise to parasite prevention and dental care.

In short, regular wellness examinations are essential for keeping your pet happy and healthy. By working with us to provide routine preventive care, you can help ensure that your furry friend enjoys a long, healthy life by your side.
