The Benefits of Annual Wellness Exams for Your Pet
As a caring pet parent, it pays to have a proactive approach to your animal's health. Often times your cat or dog may seem perfectly fine on a surface level but have developing underlying conditions. Taking preventive measures is an important and responsible step to keeping your pet's health in good standing rather than dealing with issues and complications later. Here are some benefits of receiving annual wellness checks from our experienced veterinarians:
- Identifying & Preventing Health Issues: Wellness exams will work to detect health complications like underlying diseases and parasites, while vaccinations serve to prevent viruses like rabies and parvovirus.
- Following the Law: Various states, providences, and jurisdictions require pets to be vaccinated to some degree. Even indoor pets are susceptible to dangerous viruses and diseases. Additionally, if you try to board your animal at a shelter or pet hotel, you will need proof of vaccination.
- Keeping Your Family Safe: Various animal diseases and viruses can pass to humans. Children and the elderly are more susceptible to the transmission of disease as their immune system isn't as strong as in adults. Getting your pets examined and vaccinated not only assists the health of your animal but potentially your entire family.
Pet Wellness Visits FAQ
If your pet isn't acting like themselves, or you just feel it's time for a routine checkup, our passionate veterinary team is ready to address your questions and concerns upon arrival. Some frequently asked questions regarding pet wellness visits include the following:
Yes. Their immune systems are less mature than their adult counterparts, making them more susceptible to infection and disease. We can take this time to administer foundational vaccinations essential for keeping them happy, healthy, and disease-free for the foreseeable future.
Determining a red blood cell count tells our veterinarians if your pet has anemia or suffers from other related disorders. A blood test will also inform our team regarding their white blood cell count, which could indicate disease or infection if too low. Additionally, we can measure organ function, hormone levels, and electrolyte status through this procedure.
If your pet is due for any vaccinations at the time of the wellness visit, we can provide what is needed. If you aren't sure whether your pet is ready for a booster, we will evaluate their situation and status and provide the answers you seek.
