Routine annual exams are recommended for all pets. These allow us to conduct a thorough physical examination and develop a healthy profile for your pet. During a wellness visit, the veterinarian will ask questions regarding your pets past medical history, lifestyle, diet, and behavior. We will answer any questions you may have about your pet's health and discuss recommended diagnostics. Your pet’s health risk will be assessed as well as any recommended vaccinations. We will also discuss parasite prevention and dental health. During these routine "healthy" exams we often find a medical problem that pet owners were unaware of. In addition, the wellness exam allows us to establish a relationship with you and your pet.
