What we will be checking during a wellness examination:
During a routine wellness examination, we will ask you questions about your dog's diet, exercise, thirst, breathing, behavior, habits, elimination patterns (i.e., bowel movements and urination), lifestyle, and general health. We will also perform a physical examination of your dog. Based on your pet's history and physical examination, we will then make recommendations for specific preventive medicine treatments such as vaccination, parasite control (including preventive treatments for fleas, ticks, intestinal parasites and
heartworms), nutrition, skin and coat care, weight management or dental care. In addition, we will discuss your pet's individual circumstances and decide whether any other life-stage or lifestyle recommendations would be appropriate.
