What is a Pet Wellness Exam?

A pet wellness exam is a veterinary appointment designed to assess the overall health and well-being of your pet. The goals of a vet exam include detecting any potential health issues before they become more serious or costly to treat, and providing recommendations for maintaining your pet’s health and quality of life.

How Often Should Your Pet Receive a Physical Examination?

Annual physical exams are vital for pets of any kind! Many of our younger patients have annual vet exams, but for aging pets, or those with medical conditions, we recommend an exam every six months.

What Do Pet Wellness Exams Include?

Our pet wellness exams include:

  • Vaccinations protect your pet. Dogs and cats require many of the same vaccinations, such as rabies and distemper. However, they also have different vaccination needs based on the diseases that can affect their species. Set up a comprehensive vaccination schedule with our veterinarians to protect your pet proactively.
  • Dental care is vital to your pet’s overall health. Just like humans, pets require regular dental care, both at home and at the veterinary office. 80% of adult dogs and 70% of adult cats show symptoms of oral disease (According to the American Veterinary Dental Society). Prevent unnecessary dental distress with regular care.
  • We protect your pet from nasty parasites. It can cost you thousands of dollars to rid your pet and home of fleas. Even worse, it can be nearly impossible to get rid of flea eggs, as they can survive for a very long time. Work with us to establish the best flea and tick prevention plan for your pets — and save yourself the headache later.

What are the Differences Between Cat & Dog Wellness Exams?

The key differences between wellness exams for dogs & cats include:

  1. Physical Examination Techniques: Our veterinarians may need to use different techniques during the physical examination of dogs and cats due to variations in their anatomy and behavior.
  2. Species-Specific Health Concerns: The wellness exam for each species includes assessments and preventive measures tailored to their specific health needs.
  3. Nutritional Requirements: Dogs and cats have different nutritional requirements, so we provide unique dietary recommendations during dog wellness exams and cat wellness exams.
  4. Vaccination Protocols: We tailor vaccination protocols based on factors such as your pet’s age, lifestyle, and risk of exposure to various diseases.
  5. Parasite Prevention: A wellness exam for dogs & cats includes discussions about parasite prevention measures specific to the pet’s species and lifestyle.
