Physical examination of your pet is crucial to their health. We recommend annual wellness exams to keep our patients feeling their best! During a wellness exam, we will discuss your pet’s medical history and all current concerns. Our doctors will conduct a thorough physical examination at West Russell Animal Hospital to help detect any potential problems before they become major health concerns. There are many pet health problems that can be avoided through regular physical exams, which is why we recommend that your pet has at least one examination per year. While physical exams are critical to animal health, you can do your part by being a vigilant pet owner. If you notice any irregularities with your pet, take detailed notes and bring him or her to West Russell Animal Hospital for a consultation with one of our doctors.
What exactly does a physical exam include?
A physical examination includes the external evaluation of your pet from nose to tail, ensuring their ears, eyes, mouth, teeth, skin, limbs, joints do not appear abnormal. The doctor will also listen to your pet’s heart and lungs and feel their abdomen and lymph nodes.
If something abnormal is noted additional tests may be recommended to better diagnose and treat your pet.
