Routine Care Is Extraordinary Care
Routine wellness checks are important for the health and overall well-being of your pet. A once a year wellness check is important even for pets that are otherwise healthy.
During a routine wellness exam, your veterinarian will thoroughly check your pet from head to tail. He or she will administer any needed vaccines, perform a fecal exam to check for internal parasites, check the pet’s heartworm status and take note of any external parasites.
This is a great time to bring up any health questions or behavioral concerns you may be having about your pet. Our expert staff will also be happy to help you with any behavior or training issues that may occur. This includes difficult house training, excessive barking or even aggressive behaviors.
Your wellness visit gives the veterinarian the opportunity to detect any potential health issues before they become serious or life threatening. Problems like heart disease, kidney or liver disease, diabetes, cancer and arthritis benefit greatly from early detection. This can improve the prognosis, reduce costs and improve your pet’s quality and length of life.
Different breeds of dogs age differently. Small dogs do not enter their senior years as early as larger breeds. Most breeds of dogs should start receiving senior care around 7 years old, and most cats around 8 years old.
During a senior wellness exam, the same basic checks and routine lab tests will be performed to form a baseline and identify any changes in your pet’s health. Your veterinarian will discuss any changes that need to be made in the care of your senior pet, such as an age appropriate diet or pain control for arthritic changes.
Whatever stage of life your pet is in, call us today to schedule a wellness exam to keep him or her healthy for years to come.
