Pet wellness exams are one of the most important prevention services that we offer at All Creatures Veterinary Clinic. Pet exams in Omaha can help keep your pet stay healthy and can also improve your pet’s quality of life. Because wellness exams are so important, we work hard to educate pet owners about the value of wellness exams and the frequency with which pets should have wellness exams.
There are many benefits of pet wellness exams!
During your pet’s wellness exam, the veterinarian will examine your pet’s coat, skin, eyes, ears and teeth. The vet will also check your pet’s breathing and heart rate, and may take samples of your pet’s feces and blood. Your pet’s vet will observe your pet’s behavior and will watch how your pet moves and acts.
During this time, your pet’s veterinarian will be looking for symptoms of chronic conditions, evidence of parasitic infections and other problems. If your pet’s vet identifies any problems, he or she will recommend next steps and further treatment.
Most pets should get a wellness exam on a yearly basis. This gives the veterinarian a chance to administer booster shots, perform the usual checkup and check the pet’s teeth for evidence of dental disease. Some pets need wellness exams more frequently. Older pets, pets who suffer from chronic conditions and pets who are struggling with illness may need to come in more often.
At All Creatures Veterinary Clinic, we help pets stay healthy and happy with wellness exams. To get your pet scheduled for a wellness exam, contact us today at 402-399-8224
