Our canine companions are unable to tell us how they are feeling, so it is important that you bring them in for preventative care and wellness exams on a regular basis.
Our wellness exam is an opportunity to develop a picture of your dog’s overall health. They also help us to spot potential medical issues before they become serious concerns. During these visits you can ask important questions about your dog’s health, habits and daily care. No question is too small or too silly, and it is our pleasure to address your concerns. We want you to be comfortable and informed in all aspects of your dog’s health and lifestyle. We will provide you information about home healthcare for your dog and offer important advice and new information on the care of your particular type and breed of dog.
A preventative exam includes:
Performing laboratory test (urine/blood), if necessary
Screening for parasites
Consulting about your dog’s behavior, appetite, exercise habits, and regular activities at home
Discussing heartworm, flea and tick parasite control
Listening to your dog’s heart and lungs
Checking your dog’s teeth, gums and mouth
Evaluating your dog’s eyes
Examining your dog’s ears and ear canals
Checking your dog’s lymph nodes, abdomen and skin
Feeling the joints and muscles
