At Moyers Veterinary Hospital, we understand that animals can be experts at hiding illness or pain.
That’s why we emphasize the importance of regular wellness care for your furry friend. Through physical exams and screenings, our team can detect any risk factors that indicate predispositions to certain conditions, leading to earlier diagnosis and better outcomes. By prioritizing preventative care, we can catch potential health issues before they become more serious and save you money in the long run.
During a wellness visit, we’ll perform a comprehensive physical exam of your pet, including checking their ears, eyes, nose, teeth, gums, skin, coat, and weight. They will also listen to their heart and lungs, palpate their abdomen, and check their joints and muscles.
In addition to the physical exam, we may also recommend screening tests for early disease detection, such as bloodwork, urinalysis, and fecal exams. These tests can help identify any underlying health issues that may not be immediately apparent during the physical exam. We may also discuss your pet’s diet, exercise routine, and behavior to ensure that they are living a healthy and happy life and provide recommendations on nutrition and exercise based on your pet’s age, breed, and health status.
Ultimately, the goal of a wellness visit is to promote your pet’s overall health and well-being. By detecting potential health issues early and addressing them promptly, you can help ensure that your pet lives a long and healthy life.
