Preventative Care
A comprehensive physical
examination is an important
component to keeping your pet
healthy. Pets age five to seven

times faster than humans, so
it’s important to bring your pets
in at least once a year to get

their exam.  Even a slight change
in weight could be an important
clue to us that your pet could be
facing a problem or disease he
or she can’t express to you with
It's important to have the doctor do a complete physical exam, including
listening to your pet's heart and lungs, looking at the teeth and gums,
examining the ears for signs of infection, and looking and feeling for lumps
and bumps and changes in your pet’s abdomen.  During your
pet’s annual
visit, we can discuss any changes in behavior that you may have observed,
help you assess your pet’s risk for diseases to determine which vaccines are
appropriate, and help you stay ahead of fleas, ticks, heart worms, and other
With new puppies and kittens, physical exams and their yearly vaccines are
crucial in keeping them healthy.  We will give your new pet a complete physical
exam, checking for heart murmurs, hernias, birth defects, changes in dentition,
weight changes, skin problems, and we can check for intestinal parasites for
you as well.  We will be seeing you and your new puppy or kitten about every 3
weeks for his or her boosters, and at this time we can discuss how to help
keep your pet healthy, his or her diet, ways to help prevent behavior problems,
and signs of illness to watch for. For your new kitten, a feline leukemia and
feline immunodeficiency virus test is also very important.  This is a simple
blood test we perform in-house, and you usually get the results of the test
within 10 minutes.
Senior pets, those who are eight years or
older, also require close attention.  
Age isn’t a disease, but some
diseases are more common in our
senior pets than others. We recommend
a full physical exam every six months, to
help us stay ahead of diseases and
arthritic issues that may slow your senior
pet down.  Your older pets still want to play
and enjoy life, and we want to make sure
he or she gets as many quality years of life
with you as possible
