Pet Preventative Care & Wellness Exams
Every animal requires different veterinary treatments at various stages of life, depending on its age. We all understand that preventing or detecting diseases early is much more effective than treating them once they have advanced to acute stages. Following a regular preventive healthcare schedule can help achieve this, saving you and your pet unnecessary suffering and high financial costs. Similar to doctors recommending annual human check-ups, the same goes for our furry companions. Each pet should undergo at least one annual examination, during which a veterinarian reviews their overall health and diet.
Numerous clients choose Toronto North Veterinary Hospital for routine pet check-ups. Equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, Toronto North Veterinary Hospital offers top-notch services for routine pet check-ups, disease diagnosis, and treatment.
Why Wellness Exams Are Important?
Wellness check-ups are crucial in identifying health issues early on when they are usually easier to treat. Moreover, these check-ups enable us to become acquainted with your pet and establish a baseline for their normal vital signs and behaviour. This baseline helps us quickly notice any deviations that might indicate a problem. During a veterinary wellness check-up, we will:
Assess your pet’s weight and overall health.
Measure their body temperature.
Listen to their heart and lungs.
Examine their eyes, ears, nose, mouth, and skin.
Palpate their lymph nodes and abdomen.
Evaluate their joints and mobility.
Update their vaccinations as necessary.
Screen for heartworm disease or feline leukemia.
How Does a Pet Wellness Exam Work?
Our veterinary team checks your pet’s vital signs during a pet wellness exam. The veterinarian carefully examines your pet from head to tail and may perform tests like blood work, urine analysis, or screenings for intestinal parasites. Depending on your pet’s age and needs, they might receive vaccines and get screened for heartworm, kidney issues, liver problems, blood disorders, and more.
It’s important to understand that wellness exams are not about putting your pet through complex or costly medical procedures. Instead, they help us catch potential health problems early. We use these check-ups to establish baseline values for things like temperature, body condition, and lab results when your pet is healthy. This information is valuable for providing better care if your pet ever becomes ill or faces an emergency.
Checking your pet’s dental health and weight is crucial to a wellness exam. These checks can reveal issues that could worsen quickly and significantly impact your pet’s overall well-being.
