Pet Wellness Exams in Mechanicsburg
Providing High-Quality Preventative Care for Your Pet
One of the most important actions you can take for your pet is to ensure that he or she receives the proper preventative health care. Many pet owners assume that, if their pet isn’t showing obvious signs of discomfort, illness, or injury, there is no need to visit the vet. However, many diseases and conditions can have underlying symptoms that may not become noticeable until they have progressed to a more serious stage.
Because our pets cannot tell us when something is wrong, it’s very important that you schedule annual wellness exams for your dog or cat. These exams function like routine medical check-ups for human children and adults, allowing our veterinarians to assess your pet’s overall health and detect any possible concerns early on. Most of all, routine wellness examinations can help your pet live the longest, healthiest, and happiest life possible.
What Does Our Pet Wellness Examination Entail?
During your pet’s annual wellness exam, our highly trained and experienced veterinarians will conduct a head-to-tail assessment. Our wellness programs are tailored to the unique needs and concerns of each individual pet. We look at various factors—including the type of pet you have, as well as his or her breed, age, lifestyle, and special concerns—when determining the right wellness program for your pet.
Generally speaking, our wellness exams include:
- Weighing your pet
- Taking your pet’s temperature
- Checking his/her ears, eyes, and nose
- Assessing his/her teeth, gums, and overall oral health
- Checking your pet’s heart, lungs, and lymph nodes
- Feeling his/her abdomen to check various internal organs
- Assessing your pet’s joint health
- Checking his/her muscles and spine
- Checking for any growths or tumors
In some cases, a wellness exam may also include bloodwork if we believe that additional testing should be done. After every Mechanicsburg pet wellness examination, we provide a full record of our findings and any potential concerns to our clients. From there, we can offer our professional recommendations for treatment and/or future care.
