Dr. Spears or Dr. Morgan gently greet your pet, offer some treats or TLC, and thoroughly examine your pet from head to tail. The doctors will discuss any concerns and create a customized care plan for your pet. Our team gently administers medication or vaccinations, or performs any diagnostic tests needed. We can take payment in the examination room or return to our reception area to complete your visit.
Why does my pet need an examination every year? Every pet should have a complete physical examination at least once a year. Pet's age at a more rapid pace than humans. For a middle age dog or cat, 1 year is equal to 5-7 years in their lifespan. Skipping an annual examination is like going to your doctor every 15 years or so. A full examination every year ensures we are monitoring your pet's weight & overall health, assessing the need for any booster vaccinations, and discussing any concerns you may have as a pet parent.
Bring in any medical history you have of your pet when you come to our vet clinic. It's best to keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts. If you have something like this, share it with our team. If not, let us know everything that you think will be important.
Sick pets may need diagnostic testing, such as blood work or x-rays. In some cases, we need to refer you and your pet to a Board Certified Veterinary Specialist for advanced veterinary care.
