Wellness Exams

Once-a-year exams for your dog or cat are the true centerpiece of preventive health care. If our key wellness measures are the spokes of a wheel, once a year exam is the hub holding them together. Because it’s during these comprehensive physical exams that all health variables are evaluated together to better assess your pet’s immediate health care needs.

Why Once a Year?
The early phase of a serious condition can quietly develop inside a perfectly healthy-looking dog or cat. But remember: Dogs and cats age far more quickly than we do, becoming middle-aged by their 4th birthday. Their diseases can also advance quickly, so they require more frequent monitoring.

Once-a-year comprehensive physical exam and blood tests can spot a disease in its beginning stages before your dog or cat shows any obvious signs. Whenever possible we want to treat problems early when your pet is still feeling fine, before they experience any discomfort. Plus, detecting a problem early can help ensure a better prognosis, more simple treatment, an earlier recovery and reduced medical expenses.
