A wellness exam includes a thorough examination of your pet’s major organ systems, behavior, and diet. This is also an excellent opportunity for us to discuss any routine diagnostic testing that may benefit your pet or to recommend any impending vaccinations. If your pet appears to be in good health, a wellness examination is a good time to notice any changes, such as weight gain or loss or other subtle changes that may not be noticeable at home. Information obtained during a wellness examination can sometimes help detect early signs of illness and address health problems before they worsen. We strongly recommend twice-yearly wellness exams at Bel-Aire Veterinary Hospital.
Finally, wellness exams allow us to build a relationship with you and your pet. We encourage you to use wellness exams to become more involved in your pet’s health care.
