Pet Wellness Exams in Shelton
Regular Care to Keep Your Loved One Healthy
Taking care of your pet is about more than just feeding them and giving them snuggles. Annual check-ups are important, too. At Countryside Veterinary Hospital, we offer wellness exams to keep your pet healthy and help you stay aware of anything that might become an issue later. We value making your pet’s experience as comfortable as possible.
What Does a Wellness Exam Entail?
Our Shelton veterinarians bring more than 25 years of experience to help you get the best care for your pet. We know how to make them feel at home and get them the care they need as quickly as possible. Giving your pet an annual check-up promotes a healthy and long life, so you should always plan to take them to the vet at least once a year.
Our wellness exams include:
- Comprehensive physical Examination from nose to tail
- Scheduled vaccinations determined by your pet’s lifestyle
- Health screening tests to check for potential diseases
- Intestinal Parasite Screening tests
How often should your pet see a veterinarian?
An annual wellness exam is critical in making sure your pet is cared for. For seniors and pets with chronic illnesses, we recommend that you make a visit every six months or sooner if a need is determined by your veterinarian. These regular visits will help us build comprehensive health reports about your loved one. By checking on your pet’s health, we can also make dietary recommendations and give you a treatment plan when they need other services, such as dentistry or vaccinations.
Why should you take your pet for annual wellness exams?
Annual wellness exams are an important part of keeping your pet healthy and catching any problems early. During a pet wellness exam, we will check your pet's weight, heart rate, and temperature. We will also listen to their heart and lungs and check their eyes, ears, teeth, and skin. Your pet's vet may recommend vaccinations or other preventive care based on your pet's individual needs.
Annual wellness exams are a great opportunity to ask your vet any questions you have about your pet's health. It's also a good time to update them on any changes you've noticed, such as a change in appetite or activity level. Keeping up with annual wellness exams is one of the best ways to keep your pet happy and healthy for years to come.
