Since pets age at a much quicker rate than humans, these visits will become increasingly important in the early detection of any changes in their health.
WHY CHOOSE US
In an effort to avoid prolonged delays for you and your pet, we function on an appointment basis. Walk in exams will be done on a time available basis, with appointments being given priority. Of course, if you have an emergency during hours, you and your pet will be seen immediately.
If you prefer to see a specific doctor, please inform the receptionist when you make the appointment and we will make every effort to schedule appropriately.
The physical exam is a very important aspect of your pet’s wellness. During this exam, the doctor evaluates the entire pet, which includes:
- An eye exam using an ophthalmoscope
- An ear exam using an otoscope
- A heart exam using a stethoscope
- Other points evaluated include teeth, skin, coat, vital signs, body condition, and joints. Doctors also use their hands to palpate the abdominal contents.
On average, veterinary physical exams discover three additional health concerns than what is known by the pet owner.
For the safety of all animals in our care, we require that all vaccinations be up to date. Even though we make every effort to make our patients feel comfortable during visits, they may be a little uneasy about new people, new surroundings and other pets. This is one of the reasons we ask you to restrain your pet by placing on a leash or in pet carriers before entering the waiting room
