The aging process for your pet goes by much faster than it does for us humans. Within one year, your pet goes through different changes, and their veterinarian must keep track of them. With veterinary exams, our team can detect health issues in your pet and treat them early.
What does a veterinary exam include?
A veterinary exam is similar to a doctor’s checkup. The veterinarian will perform a complete physical from nose to tail to check for any issues that could affect their health. Our experienced team finds ways to keep your pet relaxed and comfortable. The veterinarian will ask questions about your pet’s behaviour, diet, and lifestyle and will take this opportunity to discuss vaccinations and other types of preventive medicine.
How often should my pet have a veterinary exam?
All pets should have a veterinary exam every year. A veterinarian may suggest more than one visit if your pet's health is precarious due to age or known health conditions. Puppies and kittens should have three veterinary visits annually. This is because they are very susceptible to diseases. Senior pets need bi-annual exams as they are also prone to developing age-related illnesses. To book a veterinary exam for your loyal companion, please call us at 519-389-2020.
