Dog Checkup

Annual Visits

Our pets age at a faster rate than we do, and a lot can happen in a year. During an annual examination, in addition to vaccines and testing, your veterinarian will examine your pet from head to toe, identify problems before they worsen, such as orthopedic issues, dental disease, heart murmurs, and ear infections, to name only a few. To prepare for your dog or cat’s annual, collect a fresh stool sample to bring to the appointment for testing and make a list of any questions or concerns you have about your pet’s health or behavior. The annual visit is the perfect time to discuss issues such as accidents in the house, allergies, nutrition, weight, and behavioral problems. Remember, there are no “silly” questions when it comes to the health and well-being of your family member. For their safety, we ask that all cats be brought in a carrier and all dogs either leashed, carried, or in a carrier. 

Our veterinarians strongly recommend  yearly labwork, which includes a complete blood count, a chemistry panel, a urinalysis, as well as heartworm and intestinal parasite testing, providing you with a more thorough snapshot of your pet’s overall health. Even when your dog or cat is young, labwork at their annual exam will help identify any potential problems in the early stages. This labwork also gives your pet’s veterinarian a baseline to compare to in case your pet has any health concerns in the future.
