Wellness exams are an important part of every pet’s health care plan. Your veterinarian in San Antonio recommends annual wellness exams for most pet patients because it is so much easier to prevent illness and catch problems early than it is to treat medical conditions that are already causing problems.
Most pets should visit their animal hospital in San Antonio at least once a year for wellness exam. Elderly animals, certain breeds, and pets with pre-existing conditions may have to visit more frequently. Your vet in San Antonio will work with you to develop a personalized wellness plan for your pet depending on their breed, age, and overall health.
Pet exams in San Antonio are very similar to what you would expect at your own annual check up. Your veterinarian will check your pet’s ears, eyes, and nose, weigh them, and inspect their skin and fur for signs of parasites. The vet will take your pet’s temperature, and make sure they are up to date on important vaccines. Depending on your unique situation, a fecal exam or blood test will be ordered to check for illness, disease, or internal parasites. Their mouth and teeth will be checked over for decay, and finally, your vet will discuss any health issues your pet might be having. This is the time to discuss health and behavior issues, your pet’s food, or any other issues you are concerned about.
As part of your pet’s wellness exam, your vet in San Antonio will recommend parasite prevention measures to protect your pet from harmful parasites that could make them sick. A flea and tick prevention is very important in San Antonio, as is medication to prevent heartworm disease. Your veterinarian will discuss prevention and control methods based on your pet’s lifestyle and risk factors.
When you bring your pet to the animal hospital in San Antonio for a wellness exam, we will check to be sure they are up-to-date on vaccines. Our recommended vaccine schedule is based on guidelines set forth by the American Animal Hospital Association, and also takes into account your pet’s age, breed, lifestyle, and risk factors.
