Wellness Exams and Services
Wellness examinations are another key role in preventive care for your pet. Whether you have a kitten or puppy, a middle-aged pet, or a senior, wellness exams are not only used to determine if you pet is “well,” but are also used to find any problems and monitor changes if regular wellness exams are given. The goal of wellness exams is to give the veterinarians at Affordable Pet Hospital the information needed to provide the best possible care to our patients.
A wellness examination begins by getting your pet’s weight, and will include questions involving your pet’s behavior, appetite, exercise habits, and a full medical exam by our veterinarians. This is also an excellent time for you to ask us any questions you may have involving your pet’s health, and we will make recommendations suitable for your pet if necessary. Annual vaccinations and parasite testing are usually done at this time, which can help prevent minor to fatal diseases. Wellness examinations can often detect early signs of illness before they progress.
Not only is a wellness exam beneficial for the health of your pet, but we want to establish a relationship with you and your pet, getting to know his or her lifestyle, personality, health risks, home environment, and other important information. No question is too silly or small during this examination – we want you and your pet to have a long, happy, and healthy life together!
