Physical Exams

A year is a long time in the life of our pets, since their lifespan is shorter than ours. Your pets should have a complete physical examination at least once a year, just to make sure everything is alright and that no signs have been overlooked. This helps us to catch problems from disease, infection or old age, before they become too advanced or costly to treat. Senior pets or those with medical problems may need twice yearly or even more frequent examinations.

Here are some things we will discuss with you during your pet's annual physical exam:

  • Vaccination updates
  • Flea, tick, heartworm and other parasite control
  • Dental health -- please mention any mouth odors, pain or other signs of disease you may have noticed
  • Nutrition -- let us know what and how your pet is eating, especially any changes in appetite or weight
  • Exercise -- how much exercise your pet gets and any changes in what your pet can do
  • Ears and eyes -- any discharge, redness, or itching -- any scratching or head-shaking
  • Stomach and intestines -- any vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, gas, or abnormal stools
  • Breathing -- any coughing, sneezing, nasal discharge or difficulty in breathing
  • Behavior -- barking, "accidents," aggression or other behavioral changes
  • Feet and legs -- any lameness, weakness, or toenail problems
  • Coat and skin -- any hair loss, lumps, hot spots, anal sac problems, obsessive licking, etc.
  • Urogenital -- any discharges, urination problems, heats -- discuss spay/neutering if it has not been performed previously
  • Blood tests -- especially for senior pets, those with medical problems, and those taking medication
