Pet wellness exams are important for pets in Montrose! At the Montrose Veterinary Clinic in Houston TX, we administer pet wellness exams to help pets of all ages to stay healthy and happy.
Bring your pet in for a wellness exam when he or she is about 6 weeks old. During the exam, your pet's veterinarian will examine your pet for pre-existing conditions, make vaccination recommendations and discuss spaying and neutering. This first visit to the vet helps your pet get off to a healthy start and can help your pet avoid illnesses in the future.
We recommend that most pets come into the veterinarian in Montrose for a wellness exam about once a year. Pets who are elderly may need to come in more frequently because they are at increased risk for illnesses and diseases. In addition, we recommend bringing your pet any time he or she displays symptoms of chronic conditions or diseases. We recommend that pet owners watch out for the following symptoms:
If your pet displays any of the above symptoms, bring him or her in for an appointment as soon as possible.
Pet wellness exams help the veterinarian to catch conditions and illnesses before they become serious. In addition, taking your pet to the veterinarian on a regular basis helps your pet develop a relationship with the veterinarian. When your pet feels more comfortable visiting the vet, trips to the veterinarian are less stressful and more productive.
Finally, wellness exams give pet owners a chance to ask the veterinarian questions about pet health pet care. This helps ensure that pet owners know how to take care of their pets and provide a safe, healthy environment at home.
When you bring your pet in for his or her wellness exam, your pet's veterinarian will check your pet's eyes, ears, nose, mouth, breathing, and heart rate. Your pet's vet will talk to you about parasitic infections and prescribe preventatives as needed. Your pet will be weighed, and if your pet is overweight, your pet's veterinarian will discuss a plan for reducing your pet's weight. If your pet is due for vaccinations, your pet's veterinarian will administer shots during the visit.
