Just like humans, your pet can benefit greatly from regular wellness examinations or checkups. No matter the age of your pet, wellness examinations provide an excellent opportunity for us to conduct a physical examination and develop a continuous health profile for your pet. Over time, these exams will help us diagnose health issues that may arise.
A wellness examination includes an evaluation of all of your pet’s major organ systems. During the visit, we’ll discuss your pet’s appetite, behavior, exercise habits, and regular activities at home. We’ll use this time to get your pet caught up on any vaccinations and to discuss any changes in your life that could be affecting your pet. We’ll also use these wellness examinations to discuss any information that can help detect early signs of health problems or disease. When it comes to keeping your pet healthy, the best offense is a good defense.
We understand that taking your pet to the veterinarian while nothing is wrong can seem tedious, but it does give us time to make sure they are feeling great. These meetings are also an excellent time to discuss any and all questions you may have about their diet, lifestyle, behaviour, and any other questions you may have – no matter how big or small.
These wellness examinations allow us to establish a relationship with you and your pet. Through your pet’s physical examinations, other wellness procedures, and our consultations with you, we get to know your pet and learn about their lifestyle, personality, health risks, home environment, and other relevant information. This is important because your pet cannot tell us how they are feeling. However, there are many disease states that can only be identified through other means, such as blood tests. Dogs and cats age much faster than humans, and the organ systems can deteriorate at a much faster rate. In addition to annual wellness exams, annual testing will help diagnose these disease early.
