Your Pet’s Appointment with the Doctor

A yearly wellness exam for pets one to six years of age is essential to keep your pet healthy. For comparison, this is the equivalent of visiting your own doctor every 7 years.  The physical exam is the most important diagnostic tool we have!

At the appointment, a thorough history is collected to see how your pet is doing, and the veterinarian will ask about any problems or changes you have noticed. Next, a complete physical exam is performed. The doctor will check their eyes, ears, teeth/gums, check skin and coat for rashes lumps and growths, palpate the abdomen for abnormalities or pain, and listen to your pet’s heart and lungs. Any vaccines that are due will be administered, and necessary tests will be run. The veterinarian will talk with you, and be able to address any questions or concerns you have. Nutrition and behavior recommendations can be discussed. Based on your pet’s lifestyle and activities, additional diagnostics or treatments that would be beneficial to your pet’s health will also be discussed.

Our healthcare team will also provide you with information and instructions on how to keep your pet’s teeth free of plaque and tartar, minimizing the need for a dental cleaning under anesthesia. See our website’s client education section for a video demonstration of proper home dental care.


Cats and dogs are living longer due to high quality nutrition and medical care. The treatment of disorders such as cancer, kidney failure, heart disease and arthritis have improved greatly. Our furry family members can have a good quality of life and we can enjoy them longer by implementing these treatments.  We encourage and promote EARLY DETECTION SCREENING (annual blood testing) for every age.  This allows us to:

  • Establish and verify your pet’s normal blood values
  • Detect the onseet of disease before physical symptoms appear
  • Make sure your pet’s internal organ systems are healthy.

Our senior pets benefit the most from having a full exam and weight monitored every six months. At these visits, important topics covered include diet, body condition, mobility, nutritional and joint supplements, dental health, behavior changes and pain management. Senior wellness blood and urine evaluation is very important to catch disease early. X-rays are commonly used to screen for disease as well. Common aging changes, especially to the kidneys, need to be monitored closely. We look at every animal as an individual and can discuss the best preventative treatment plan for keeping your pet happy, healthy and comfortable.
