Pet Wellness Exams at Our Vet Care Center in Stockton, CA
The gift of health is the most precious thing you own -- and it's just as precious for your beloved pet. While treatment of various illnesses as they occur can make a world of difference in restoring your pet to wellness, preventing those problems makes even more sense as a veterinary wellness strategy. That's why we're so happy to provide pet wellness exams at our Stockton, CA vet care center, Venetian Pet Hospital.
Pet Wellness Exams Offer Tremendous Benefits
It's impossible to overstate the value of pet wellness exams in safeguarding your pet's long-term health. An ounce of prevention has always been worth the proverbial pound of cure for pets and people alike. Certain stages of a pet's life pose some very real challenges that need to be addressed -- from a puppy or kittens' vulnerability to germs to a senior pet's age-related disease risks. Regular pet wellness exams are the perfect opportunity to evaluate your pet's baseline wellness and administer routine procedures to keep that wellness intact.
Even for healthy, robust adults, pet wellness exams catch any lurking ailments that might escape even the best preventative care routines. If your pet looks happy, his nose is cold, and he enjoys his dinner, as usual, you may understandably assume that all is well with his health. But this isn't necessarily the case. A detailed pet wellness exam can catch diseases and disorders in their earliest forms, long before you might expect that anything is wrong with your pet. This allows us to administer treatment as effectively as possible and nip those issues in the bud.
What to Expect From Your Pet's Wellness Exam
Your pet's wellness exam may vary somewhat depending on his age and the current state of health. Puppies and kitten should have several wellness exams early on, combined with preventative procedures such as vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery (which can help prevent reproductive diseases later in life), and de-worming. Healthy adults get one exam per year. Twice-yearly senior pet exams place extra focus on age-related threats such as cataracts, organ failure, and cancer. All pets, however, get a careful inspection both inside and out. External checks, vital sign monitoring, weighing, dental checkups, and lab tests (blood, fecal, urine etc.) give us a clear picture of your pet's well-being. We can then recommend any necessary treatments or lifestyle adjustments to help you keep your pet healthy until his next visit.
