Pet Wellness Exams
Your pet should get checked out at least one per year with a pet wellness exam. For older pets and those with special needs, a frequency of every six months or shorter may be required. With MVS Pet Care - Las Vegas, our at-home vet care services provide your furry friend with a comprehensive annual exam.
Pet Wellness Exams and Preventative Care
This preventative care exam essentially functions like a physical for your pet. Our veterinarian checks out the different systems of your pet to make sure that everything is in good working order. Screening through urine and blood tests provide more information on the overall wellness of your pet and can show early signs of illness. When you stay on top of preventative care, our veterinarian can find those signs sooner to quickly treat any issues.
The Benefits of Getting a Routine Pet Exam
You get the peace of mind of knowing that your pet is in good health. If they do have any medical problems, our veterinarian will schedule the necessary diagnostic procedures so you can find out exactly what's going on, as soon as possible. During this exam, you can also get your pet their yearly vaccinations, along with other treatments.
What to Expect During a Routine Exam
Our veterinarian will check your pet’s weight, respiratory rate, pupil response, the condition of the teeth, inside the ears, and other parts of the body. The vet will listen to your pet's heart to see whether it sounds normal, and we will also check in on the sound of their breathing. The condition of the fur and paws provide additional information for the exam. Generally, your pet will not need to be sedated for this exam unless they have a hard time with being gently restrained.
Once our veterinarian finishes the exam, we will let you know how your pet is doing, whether you have any health concerns, and make recommendations for treatment if necessary. You can also go over your pet's nutrition and behavior, if either of these areas are problematic.
