What to Expect from a Preventative Care Exam
Our physical wellness exams serve as the foundation of your pet’s medical care. We are here to help you when your beloved animal is sick or injured, but we encourage you to take advantage of preventative care to avoid disease and maintain your pet’s health on a daily basis.
During a physical exam, we may:
- Listen to your pet’s heart and lungs
- Check lymph nodes
- Check your pet’s pulse
- Administer an x-ray or ultrasound
- Discuss your pet’s diet
- Assess skin, nose, eyes, ears, and mouth
Based on our physical assessment, we may recommend blood tests to evaluate organ function, protein levels, electrolytes, blood cell counts, thyroid levels, urinalysis, heart worm infection, tick borne diseases, and feline infectious diseases. We can administer diagnostic services – like radiology and ultrasound – or provide a referral for advanced imaging – to diagnose any potential issues we observe. We may also recommend diet changes and nutritional supplements to help the skin, heart, nervous system, liver, and joints.
Annual or semi-annual screening for parasites and insect-borne diseases allows for timely treatment if needed and prompts safe and effective measures to prevent those infections.
