Regularly scheduled preventative health exams are one of the most important things you can be doing for your dog or cat’s health and well-being. Wellness exams allow us to spot problems early on, when they are easiest to treat. These exams also allow us to establish a health and behavioral baseline for your dog or cat, so we can quickly see when something is amiss. During your pet’s wellness exam, our veterinary team will thoroughly examine each of your pet’s major biological systems; taking a careful look at their heart, lungs, ears, nose, throat, skin, etc.

Many pet owners aren’t aware that by the age of three, most dogs and cats show signs of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease erodes the supporting structures of the mouth, which is very painful. In this process, harmful bacteria is created, and can spread through your dog or cat’s bloodstream to their internal organs, causing serious health issues later in life. This is why it is so important to have a veterinary team that helps you with regular cleanings, other advanced dental work when necessary, and can educate you on proper at-home care.
