Throughout a pet's life, it is subject to health problems that may be considered minor, or they may have more severe health issues. For this reason, scheduling a wellness exam is recommended for pets as soon as possible. We at Chestnut Animal Clinic have a veterinarian in Conway, AR, that can help get you a pet wellness exam.
Wellness Exam Procedures
When a pet wellness exam is scheduled, pet owners can expect that their pet will receive a complete examination. The exam may include several processes, such as diagnostic testing, urinalysis, blood work, and a check for parasites via a stool sample. Your pet's pulse, temperature, heart rhythm, joints, lymph nodes, doing an oral check of the teeth, and checking eyes and ears, may also be included in the exam. The results of the tests provide an overall assessment of your pet's health as well as any health issues that may need to be addressed.
Pet wellness exams are generally given on an annual basis. In some situations, such as a pet with a chronic health issue or for pets that have reached "senior age" status, a veterinarian on our team may recommend an exam every six months. For young puppies and kittens, our vet may recommend a monthly examination.
Benefits of a Pet Wellness Exam
Several things to consider that are beneficial to your pet include the following:
- Ensure the overall well-being of your pet.
- Detect problems early on before they become more serious and life-threatening.
- Provide a longer life.
- Eliminate silent suffering.
- Lower veterinary bills.
