Pets should have routine physical examinations in order to keep them happy and healthy! Preventative medicine is important because it allows us to find and treat problems or conditions early on, when they are much easier (and less costly!) to treat. During your dog or cat’s examination, we will thoroughly check your pet’s different biological systems, such as their vascular (heart), respiratory (lungs), skin, eyes, ears, and mouth. This also helps us establish a baseline of health for your pet, so that it will be much easier for us to notice if/when something becomes irregular.
