What is a Pet Wellness Exam?

A pet wellness exam is a thorough check-up performed by a veterinarian to assess your pet’s overall health. During the exam, our veterinarian will examine your pet from nose to tail, looking for any signs of illness or abnormalities.

Regular wellness exams are essential for maintaining your pet’s health. They allow our veterinary team to detect potential health issues early when they are most treatable. These exams also give us the opportunity to discuss your pet’s diet, exercise routine, and any other concerns you may have.

Benefits of a Pet Wellness Exam

  • Early Detection of Health Issues: Wellness exams can help catch health problems early when they are easier to treat.
  • Tailored Preventive Care: Based on your pet’s age, breed, and lifestyle, our veterinarian can recommend preventive care measures to keep them healthy.
  • Peace of Mind: Regular wellness exams can give you peace of mind, knowing your pet is in good health.

What to Expect During a Wellness Exam

During a pet wellness exam, our veterinarian will:

  • Check your pet’s weight and body condition
  • Examine your pet’s eyes, ears, and mouth
  • Listen to your pet’s heart and lungs
  • Palpate your pet’s abdomen
  • Check your pet’s skin and coat
  • Discuss your pet’s diet, exercise routine, and behavior

When to Schedule a Wellness Exam

It’s important to schedule a wellness exam for your pet at least once a year. Puppies, kittens, senior pets, and pets with chronic or serious health issues may need more frequent exams.
