Preventative Health Care on a regular basis will save you and your pet from needless pain as well as help protect you from a larger financial burden. Just as yearly exams are recommended for you and I, they are recommended for our pets as well. If your pets have existing medical conditions or are getting older they may require more frequent examinations.
During your pet’s regular preventative care exam you will be able to track your pet’s overall health. Your pet’s mouth will be checked for signs of dental disease. Their eyes and ears will be examined and their respiratory health will be diagnosed. We will also take a look at their skin and coat condition to determine their dermatological health. Their abdomen will be checked for any abnormalities internally. We will discuss your pet’s behaviors and environment and give recommendations when needed. A blood test may also be administered in order to discover any problems, which may not be immediately apparent. This is also the time in which we will determine the vaccination status of your furry friend and recommend whether they are due for an update.
