What to Expect at Your Pet’s Exam

Prevention is the key to longer lasting health for your companion so you can enjoy more time with them. With preventive measures including parasite prevention, vaccinations, and diagnostic screening, you help preserve your pet’s well-being. At your pet’s exam, we’ll perform the following:

  • A thorough, nose-to-tail exam
  • Fecal exam to check for internal parasites
  • Heartworm test to detect any heartworms
  • Urinalysis, if needed, to assess organ function
  • Vaccinations, if due for boosters
  • Blood draw and analysis for disease screening

We recommend annual exams for cats and dogs. Has your pet seen the vet this year?

Parasite Preventatives

Our warm, mild climate is the perfect environment for fleas, ticks, mosquitoes, and other parasites. These pests can cause serious illness in our pets, and some can even affect your human family, too! In our area in particular, we are prone to high levels of heartworm disease, so it’s especially important to keep up with heartworm prevention! There are many different options for flea, tick, and heartworm prevention for dogs and cats, and it can be overwhelming to choose which one is right for your pet. Our veterinarians will assess your pet’s health, their level of risk, and more to determine which medication is best for them.

A Check-up for More than Just Your Pet

Wellness exams are not only great for your pet, they allow us to connect and check in with you about being a pet parent. Are there any concerns you have about your pet’s health or behavior at home? A wellness exam is a great time to talk about these concerns with your veterinarian, so we can offer our expert advice and make adjusts to treatment as needed. Strengthening the human-animal bond is what we live for, and to do that, we need to have a connection with the both of you! We hope to see you and your pet soon!
