Our pets are a part of our family, and every responsible owner wants to ensure that their pets are in the very best of health. The majority of conditions that animals are susceptible to have no obvious symptoms early on. Once they do present themselves, many pets may already be suffering and may then require extensive medical assistance. Your pet may not be able to tell you what is wrong, but our examinations aim to discover the source of any problem, or indeed prevent them before they arise.
To help keep your pet in optimum health we recommend full nose to tail wellness examinations at least once per year. If you have recently purchased a pet then we strongly recommend that you book an appointment for their first examination within the first few weeks of ownership. Younger animals are more vulnerable to illness and this will allow us to reassure you of their health and give us a starting point for their medical records.
Your pet’s physical examination will include some or all of the following:
As well as a physical examination we will also want to talk to you about your pet’s overall wellbeing. This will include asking about their usual behavior and disposition, their water intake, diet and eating habits, urinating and bowel regularities and activity levels. These will allow us to paint an overall picture of your pets’ health to compliment the physical examination. If this is your first visit to us and we do not detect any underlying health concerns, we can use this information as a basis to represent your pet in a normal state of health. If this is a subsequent visit then we can compare this to their base report and check for any significant changes, which could be early indicators of medical problems.
Make sure that your pet is as healthy as you are by booking a medical examination for them today.
