Pet Exam

Regular Pet Exams

Regular pet exams are a cornerstone of preventative pet care. Just as humans visit their doctors for checkups, pets can also benefit from routine examinations to help ensure they are in optimal health. These exams provide an opportunity for your veterinarian to assess your pet's overall well-being, detect any potential health issues early on, and recommend appropriate preventative measures. If you are interested in a wellness exam for your pet, contact us at Cedar Grove Animal Hospital in Mission, BC.

Pet Exam

Comprehensive Assessment of Your Pet's Health

During a pet exam, a veterinarian on our team may check your pet's vital signs, including heart rate, respiratory rate, and temperature. We may also assess your pet's eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and skin for any abnormalities or signs of illness. Additionally, a veterinarian on our team may also palpate your pet's abdomen to check for any tenderness or masses and examine his joints and muscles for any signs of pain or stiffness.

Early Detection of Health Issues

One of the most significant benefits of regular pet exams is the early detection of health issues. Many diseases and conditions, such as diabetes, kidney disease, and cancer, can be effectively managed or even cured if caught early. Through routine exams, a veterinarian on our team can identify potential problems before they become serious, potentially allowing for timely intervention and improved treatment outcomes.

Personalized Preventive Care Recommendations

Based on your pet's age, breed, lifestyle, and overall health status, we will likely recommend preventive care measures. These may include:

•           Pet Vaccinations: Vaccinations protect your pet from various infectious diseases, hopefully ensuring he stays healthy and avoids unnecessary suffering.

•           Parasite Control: Preventative medications can help safeguard your pet against fleas, ticks, heartworms, and other parasites that can hurt your pet’s health.

•           Dental Care: Regular dental checkups and cleanings can help prevent dental disease, a problem in pets that can lead to other health issues if left alone.

•           Nutritional Counseling: Your veterinarian may help you choose the right food for your pet's specific needs so that your pet can receive a balanced and nutritious diet.
