What Is a Pet Wellness Exam?
A wellness exam is usually done once a year except for older pet patients and those with health issues, who might come in more often.
The exam allows the veterinarian to "check under the hood" to determine your pet's current health status as well as diagnose any potential medical issues. During the exam, our vet might check your pet's breathing, heart rate, any scratches or wounds, and lymph nodes. Your pet might be weighed, his temperature might be taken, and his teeth might be checked. Our vet might also check for fleas and ticks.
Our vet might take a blood sample and order a blood test for the purpose of determining if your pet is experiencing any internal issues, if there is any disease affecting your pet, or if your pet is experiencing other problems.
A pet bitten by an infected mosquito can develop heartworm in a matter of a few months. Fleas and ticks can also be dangerous for your pet’s health. During your visit, recommendations for providing ongoing prevention against parasites will be discussed with you.
