Routine exams are one of the most important ways to keep your pet healthy and happy. Even if your pet seems healthy to you, a veterinarian may notice subtle changes in your pet’s physical exam from year to year that could point to a medical concern.
EXAM PROCEDURES INCLUDE:
Listening to the heart and lungs checking for heart murmurs or congestion
Feeling the abdomen to make sure vital organs are the proper size
Checking the joints for signs of arthritis
Checking the skin and hair coat for wounds, growths, skin infections, hair loss, or external parasites.
