The Importance of Regular Wellness Exams

These exams are a crucial step in ensuring your pets are staying healthy and can be a positive way to be proactive about your pet’s health. Usually, it is a yearly checkup or more frequently depending on the medical history of your pet. Major diseases and ailments can be detected early with these exams. If your pet is older, more frequent exams may be recommended.

Here are some important services involved in a wellness exam:

  • History Intake: Your pet may have existing health conditions. A thorough review of your animal's medical history is the first step in treatment.
  • Vital Stats: Temperature, pulse, and a general examination of vital functions is part of a complete wellness exam.
  • Complete Physical Exam: Vital organs and overall physical health including examination of your pet’s eyes, mouth, ears, heart, lungs, abdomen, lymph nodes, teeth, and musculoskeletal system are assessed and recorded.
  • Recommendations: After a complete assessment of your pet’s health, recommendations concerning diet, lifestyle, dental care, immunizations, and any treatments will be provided.

Choose a veterinary care service that is right for you and your pet as a positive step in maintaining your pet’s health for years to come.

  • "Wow! Thanks to all the staff at Anderson Vet Clinic. I feel like you all truly love what you do! My kitty, Lola and I always have such a pleasant experience when we come in. Fortunately, it’s usually just for a check-up, but I would not leave Lola in anyone else’s hands but yours. Thank you for your caring commitment!"

Thanks to Dr. Anderson, he evaluated Fabio and his current diet to make some recommendations and now Fabio has gone from barely eating to finishing his meals and he looks healthier than ever. You clearly are an expert in your field...thanks so much!"
