Benefits of Regular Examinations and Checkups For Your Pet
Whether your pet is a youngster, a senior citizen, or any age in between, wellness examinations provide an excellent opportunity for us to conduct a thorough physical examination and develop a health profile for your pet. This information will help us identify medical problems and any other issues that can affect your pet’s health and quality of life. A pet wellness exam is a proactive way to monitor and maintain your pet’s health.
Monitor and Maintain Your Pet’s Health With Annual Wellness Exams
A wellness examination includes an evaluation of all of your pet’s major organ systems. We’ll use the wellness visit to ask you questions about your pet’s behavior, appetite, exercise habits, and regular activities at home. This is also an excellent time for us to discuss any routine diagnostic testing that may benefit your pet or to recommend any vaccinations that may be due. If your pet seems healthy, a wellness examination is a good opportunity to note any changes, such as weight gain or loss or other subtle changes that may not be evident at home.
Ask Questions About Your Pet’s Health
A wellness examination is also your chance to have us address your questions or concerns about your pet. No question is too small or too silly, and it is our pleasure to address your concerns. We strive to help you understand your pet’s health considerations, and we encourage you to be involved in decisions regarding your pet’s health care. Ask us all the questions you have about your pet’s health at the next checkup exam for your pet.
Establishing a Relationship Through Pet Checkup Exams
Finally, wellness examinations help us establish a relationship with you and your pet. Through your pet’s physical examinations, other wellness procedures, and our consultations with you, we get to know your pet and learn about his or her lifestyle, personality, health risks, home environment, and other important information. We encourage you to use wellness examinations to take an active role in your pet’s health care.
