Does my pet really require an annual checkup if they have no issues?
Regular checkups for pets are crucial as they can hide their pain well. Even if your pet appears healthy, they may be silently suffering from health problems that can progress into serious, life-threatening conditions. Therefore, it is recommended to have an annual checkup to detect any underlying health issues. For senior pets, we recommend more frequent health exams every 6 months.
What services are included in the visit?
We conduct comprehensive wellness exams to gather thorough information about your pet's health. Our examination includes a complete assessment of their physical state, starting from their nose to their tail. In addition, we conduct diagnostic tests to gain insights into their internal health. Our veterinary visits comprise the following services:
- A complete physical assessment, which involves examining their teeth, throat, eyes, skin, and ears
- Laboratory tests to analyze blood, fecal, and urine samples
- Imaging diagnostics
- Discussion about your pet's vaccination and preventive medicine.
