Preventative Care for Dogs & Cats

Regular annual pet health and wellness exams are the key to keeping your pet healthy and greeting you at the door for years to come. Wellness examinations help us develop a complete picture of your pet’s overall health and are useful for detecting potential problems before they become more difficult to treat.

As part of a yearly examination, the doctor will evaluate the following on your pet:

  • Heart and lungs
  • Test the vision and and ocular (eye) changes
  • Examine the teeth and oral cavity
  • Look for unusual lumps or swelling
  • Test the joints and muscles for arthritis and evidence of unseen pain
  • Inspect the skin and hair coat including ear canals
  • Check the lymph nodes for enlargement or irregularities
  • Assess body mass index for weight concerns
  • During the exam, we discuss your pet’s vaccination needs and ask questions about your pet’s behavior, eating habits, and other concerns or issues
  • We also discuss preventative care including wellness lab work, heartworm prevention, flea prevention, and more!
