How Often Should My Cat/Dog Have An Exam?
All cats and dogs should have a veterinary examination at least annually. The veterinarian will always discuss frequency of exams based on your pet’s needs in the event that he or she might need to be seen more regularly.
What Does The Veterinarian Determine in an Exam?
The subjective part of our exam is learning your pet’s life style, behavior, and diet through you (our client).
The objective part of our exam is learning your pet’s physical status based on the veterinarian’s assessments in checking these anatomical aspects: ears/eyes, teeth, feeling joints, listening to the heart and lungs, palpating the stomach, temperature, respiration, and body condition.
Our assessment based on both the subjective and objective portions of our exam completes the determination of your pet’s medical condition.
Conclusion to our exam results in a plan for you and your pet. Every plan contains these components:
Diagnostic Plan: Testing for heartworms, parasites, bloodwork (other diagnostic tests if necessary for your pet).
Therapeutic Plan: Suggested treatment for current conditions if diagnosed.
Prevention Plan: Prevention of heartworms, parasites, fleas/ticks, diseases through core vaccines (dogs: rabies, canine distemper, canine parvovirus, canine adenovirus-2, cats: rabies, feline panleukopenia, feline herpesvirus-1, calicivirus, feline leukemia), unplanned pregnancy through spaying/neutering, and microchipping.
Follow-up Plan: Care recommendations and a planned future visitation for assessment.
Documentation: Thorough documentation of your pet’s visit.
