The Cornerstone of Preventive Care: Annual Pet Wellness Exams

The annual wellness exam provides us (and you) with a comprehensive overview of your pet's health. These exams are crucial for spotting any changes or emerging issues since their last visit. We recommend:

  • Annual exams for adult pets to keep them at their best.
  • Bi-annual exams for senior pets (age 7 and up) to closely monitor their health.
  • Early exams for new puppies and kittens to start their health journey on the right foot.

During these exams, our team performs a thorough evaluation from nose to tail, including:

  • Checking body temperature and weight
  • Examining the eyes, ears, and mouth
  • Assessing the heart, lungs, abdomen, and skin
  • Evaluating the bones, joints, and overall dental health
  • Conducting blood tests and a fecal exam to check for parasites and assess the health of your pet’s internal organs and systems

Why Parasite Prevention and Routine Blood Work are Important

Preventing parasites is a big part of keeping your pet healthy. Parasites like fleas and ticks not only cause discomfort but can also cause health problems, such as Lyme disease (spread by ticks) and heartworm disease (spread by mosquitoes). Regular blood work and fecal exams are equally important, offering early detection of diseases (including parasites) which can be crucial for effective treatment. Plus, the sooner we can treat an emerging or existing problem, the more time your pet can spend in good health!

Whether you're looking to schedule a wellness exam, interested in a puppy or kitten care package, or have questions about parasite prevention and routine blood work, we're here to help. Contact us at (727) 376-7600 today to schedule an appointment.
