Wellness examinations are the same for your pet as the yearly physical you receive from your doctor. It's a chance for us to assess your pet's overall health, discuss any changes we see, and educate and update you on advancements in veterinary care.
During our comprehensive pet wellness examination, your veterinarian will check your pet's:
We'll also ask for information about your pet's typical behavior, appetite, and exercise habits. This information, combined with the physical examination of your pet, helps us detect early signs of illness and address health issues before they progress.
The best way to ensure your pet is well and lives a long life is to promote a healthy lifestyle and be proactive in his or her preventive care. The veterinary team at Brevard Aid to Animals believes prevention is a positive contribution to your pet's long-term health and minimizes the lifetime cost of veterinary care. We strongly encourage that your pet receive annual wellness examinations, vaccinations, and heartworm testing/intestinal parasite testing, along with regular laboratory work and year-round medications to prevent heartworms, intestinal parasites, fleas, and ticks.
At Brevard Aid to Animals we also take ample time to get to know your pet and you. Annual wellness examinations are an opportunity for us to listen to you and your concerns, answer your questions, and thoroughly examine your cherished friend.
Estimates for treatment can be given at time of examination.
If your pet is showing any symptoms that are not typical or that are concerning to you, this would be a good indicator that your pet needs to see a Veterinarian. These signs may include, but are certainly not limited to:
This, of course, is not a complete list of signs and symptoms to watch for, just a few ideas of things that should be checked out. Here at Brevard Aid to Animals we always recommend bringing a pet in to be seen if they display any signs of distress or illness.
If your pet is severely ill or unresponsive, we strongly recommend visiting the Animal Emergency and Critical Care clinic.
