Wellness Examinations

Because your pet ages more quickly than you do and cannot tell you in words how he or she is feeling, examinations are an important part of keeping your pet healthy. Depending on a pet’s life stage, whether they are a young, middle-aged or senior pet, annual or twice yearly exams are recommended. Generally, younger and middle-aged pets (under about 7 years of age) should have an annual wellness examination. For older pets (over 7 years of age or larger breed dogs over about 5 years of age) twice yearly wellness examinations are recommended; one of those examinations to include a comprehensive senior wellness examination. For more information on our senior wellness examinations and our Senior Wellness Packages, please view here.

During a wellness examination one of our veterinarians will evaluate many aspects of your pet’s health. The doctor will examine:

  • Skin and coat
  • Eyes
  • Heart
  • Abdomen
  • Urogenital systemkitten2
  • Central Nervous system
  • Mouth, teeth and gums
  • Ears
  • Respiratory system
  • Musculoskeletal system
  • Gastrointestinal system
  • In addition the doctor will discuss your pet’s lifestyle and environment to tailor a vaccination schedule, weight management and nutrition program, and parasite prevention plan for your pet. Each pet and its lifestyle may vary, so not every animal should be treated the same in regard to what is best for their health. Each pet is an individual.


Please bring along a stool sample for your wellness appointment for an intestinal parasite screen.
