Let’s talk about wellness care.
Weight: If your pet is found to be overweight or underweight, based on the recommended BMI, we can recommend diet/nutrition or exercise recommendations.
Temperature: Your pet’s temperature helps us determine if your pet has a fever, which can indicate an infection is present.
Skin/coat: Pets are at risk for a number of dermatological problems that may require an additional exam for treatment, including rashes, atopy, dandruff, and mange.
Eyes: Cataracts, glaucoma, dry eye, and infections are some of the most common eye conditions seen in pets. If any of these conditions are detected, we typically recommend an ophthalmology exam.
Nose: We examine the nose for cloudy, yellow, or odorous discharge, which may be a sign of allergies, infection, or a blockage.
Ears: Ear problems are among the most common problems seen in pets. They are usually evidenced by discharge, redness, or excessive ear scratching. Ear problems are often a result of allergies, parasites, or foreign bodies.
Teeth and gums: Your pet’s dental health is one of the most important elements of their overall health. That’s why we check for swollen gums, tartar buildup, bad breath, and a number of other abnormal symptoms, as these may be signs of gum disease. Depending on our findings, we may recommend a dental cleaning after the wellness exam.
Heart and lungs: During the heart and lungs check, we check the heartbeat and listen for any irregular breathing, which may indicate a disease or infection, such as bronchitis or kennel cough.
Abdomen: We check the abdomen to ensure there isn’t any swelling, which may be a sign of obstruction or something as simple as being overweight.
Here's to a long, healthy life.
