We believe all pets need regular wellness examinations and vaccinations. It is really important for pet’s overall health because it allows veterinarians to do a thorough check-up and evaluate their general condition.
An important part of the examination is the time spent talking with our staff. Here at American Veterinary Hospital, our staff is here for you if you have any questions or concerns about things going on with your pets. We are here to discuss anything from diet to training, and much more. You might talk about something without realizing that it could be symptomatic. We might hear you say something that tells us to look closer or to run more tests to investigate the problem.
During the examination our veterinarians will look over your pets thoroughly. This is also a good time to discuss preventative medicine. We will make sure your pets are up to date on vaccinations and also make sure you have enough heartworm and flea and tick medications. We may also talk about routine deworming and other preventative medicine you need to know about.
There is another reason we recommend routine examinations. We hope to catch any problems before they turn into more serious ones. Our veterinarians are trained to catch things early before your pets are really ill. We may recommend blood work to further evaluate your pet’s overall health.
