Comprehensive Pet Physical Exams in Weddington, NC
Annual Preventative Exams
Annual preventative care examinations for your pet include an evaluation of your pet’s overall health, including vaccinations and screening tests. Your pet may receive a fecal and heartworm test at their annual visit, and blood work may be recommended for your pet to prevent or assess for diseases. These tests and vaccinations can help protect your pet and help ensure they remain healthy. Typically, it is recommended that your pet visits their veterinarian at least once a year for preventative care. As your pet grows older or if they develop a chronic health condition, it may be recommended for your pet to be checked more frequently, such as every 6 months, to ensure they stay healthy. Since pets age much faster than humans, they can develop diseases rapidly and often will show no symptoms until the disease progresses.

Nose to Tail Exam
At each physical examination, every inch of your pet will be examined thoroughly from their nose to their tail. The veterinarian examines each body system thoroughly and systematically. The examination includes looking at the eyes, ears, nose, teeth, heart, lungs, abdomen, bones, muscles, joints, reproductive and lymphatic tracts, and more. Your pet’s weight will be evaluated and a change in diet or lifestyle may be recommended. A thorough oral examination is performed at each visit and your pet’s teeth are assessed for any broken or infected teeth. A dental cleaning may be recommended to remove tartar and disease. Any vaccines or treatments will be administered and your vet will discuss any health concerns or recommendations with you.
