A full physical exam consists of the doctor listening to the heart and lungs, checking the ears, eyes and mouth and palpating the abdomen. After discussing lifestyle, age and breed, our doctors will also recommend appropriate yearly vaccinations.
We recommend yearly exams for all pets up to age 7; once a pet is over 7 years old, they are considered a senior pet. For senior pets, we recommend a physical exam every 6 months. These bi-annual exams give the doctor a chance to prevent or diagnose any medical issues early.
When your pet is sick, it’s hard for them to tell you exactly what’s wrong; that’s what we’re here for. If you think your pet is sick, call us right away. We will do our best to fit you in and have your pet seen as soon as possible.
