Key Benefits of Routine Pet Exams

We all know that our pets age at a faster rate than humans. What you may not know is that dogs and cats can often appear healthy on the outside, while having one or more issues on the inside. Pets instinctively try to hide pain and illness, but with routine exams, you and your vet can uncover underlying problems and treat them quickly.

Some of the key reasons we recommend annual wellness exams:

  • Our team can create a complete and detailed record of your pet’s health and provide better treatment options based on information from past appointments
  • Regular visits means we can build a stronger partnership with you and your pet, and have a better understanding of their condition, behavior, and lifestyle
  • When or if subtle and unusual health changes occur in your pet, we’ll be able to detect them more easily
  • With all of the above, your pet is likely to be healthier and live longer

The Various Aspects of a Pet Exam

When your pet comes to see us for their annual exam, there are several things you can expect during their visit:

  • The first thing we do is check your pet’s heart, lungs, weight, and temperature, then ask if you have any questions or concerns about your pet’s health
  • If your pet is due for their vaccinations, we can administer them during the appointment
  • We recommend annual fecal screenings and heartworm tests, so be sure to bring a fresh stool sample for evaluation
  • We often provide deworming treatments to puppies and kittens, because they are prone to infection
  • Senior pets might benefit from chest X-rays to check on their heart and lungs if they have a history of heart and lung problems
  • If needed, we’ll provide you with a full supply of parasite preventatives, which we recommend year-round for dogs and cats

Our team is always happy to answer your questions and offer counseling to help you with their care. Contact our hospital at (407) 656-6050 to schedule an appointment or speak with a member of our team.
