As a pet owner, you know that good veterinary care can help your pet live a longer, healthier life. Regular pet wellness exams can make a significant difference in your pet’s longevity. At Pet Medical Center of Westerville in Westerville, OH, we provide comprehensive physical exams to ensure that your pet continues to get the necessary vet care that he or she needs to maintain good health. During the exam, our veterinarian can get to know your pet’s condition better and can advise you on topics that can help him or her maintain good health throughout life.
The Importance of Pet Wellness Exams
Regular wellness exams are much like your visit to the doctor for an annual physical. These visits help to ensure your pet receives regular vaccinations, as well as preventative medications against fleas, ticks and internal parasites. In addition, you will be able to ask our veterinarian about any problems with feeding, housebreaking, behavior, weight management, and other issues that may be affecting your pet’s health and well-being. Our vet can check for early signs of diseases that can be more effectively treated in the early stages, so your pet can enjoy a happy and active life.
What Happens During A Pet Wellness Exam?
During your pet’s wellness visit, your pet will be weighed and our vet will give your beloved animal a head to tail examination, including the eyes, ears, mouth tissues, teeth, coat, and skin. Our vet will also listen to the heart and lungs as well as feel the abdomen and joints for any signs of growths or sensitivity. Our veterinarian may also ask questions about feeding, exercise, housebreaking, and behavior. You can then discuss flea & tick control, heartworm prevention medication, and dental care. Our vet may test for internal parasites, heartworms, and administer a blood test to determine if internal organs are functioning normally. If you have any concerns about your pet, this is a good time to get expert advice about pet care.
