Your Pets, Our Family, Here For You Today


Wellness Evaluation:

As part of our annual examination, we;
  • Check for significant weight loss or gain, which can be an early warning sign of disease. Obesity is a common problem for pets. We will assess your pet's diet and nutritional needs.
  • Perform a rectal exam, if indicated, to check for abnormalities.
  • Assess the condition of legs, hips, joints and spine.
  • Assess the hair and coat. It should appear health and well groomed. Dull, dry, brittle hair or hair loss may indicate an underlying illness. Check skin for infection or signs of fleas, ticks or mites.
  • Palpate the abdomen for abnormal masses or pain.
  • Listen to the chest for heart murmurs, irregular heartbeat and abnormal lung sounds.
  • Examine the eyes for cataracts, glaucoma or inflammation.
  • Examine the ears for ear mites, infection or inflammation.
  • Evaluate nose and nasal passages for signs of upper respiratory disease.
  • Check for periodontal disease. As many as 95% of all pets two years and older have periodontal disease. We evaluate your pet's teeth and check the color and condition of the gums.
  • Palpate lymph nodes to check for inflammation or tumors.
  • Check a blood test for heartworm and a stool test for intestinal parasites.
