Preventative Pet Wellness Care
The saying goes “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” The best investment that you can make in your dog or cat’s health and well-being is a routine wellness examination. These are important, because they allow us to establish a baseline of their overall health, so that we can quickly see if something goes amiss. We treat every single pet and person who walks through our front doors like family, because we believe you deserve no less.
During every physical examination, we perform a “nose to tail” evaluation. We listen to the heart and lungs, evaluate vision and hearing, inspect the teeth, scan the coat and skin, palpate the abdomen and examine joints and muscles. We also discuss behavior at home, diet and lifestyle. This helps us develop a complete picture of your pet’s health.
We allow ample time during examinations for you to ask questions and enjoy educating owners in all aspects of pet care. We strive to develop close relationships with our clients and want to be a “partner” in your pet’s healthcare.
What To Expect
The first step is to give us a call to schedule your examination!
During your pet’s exam, we will take basic measurements – such as their weight, temperature, listen to their heart, etc. We will then conduct a full nose-to-tail examination where we carefully study each of their major bodily systems.
This is also a great opportunity for us to answer any questions you might have about your pet’s wellness, and to help you set healthy habits.
