Here at Fur Feathers and Friends Veterinary Hospital, we are proud to offer complete physical examinations.It is very important to make sure that your pet has routine complete physical examinations. Our staff will get a chance to talk to you and see if you are having any trouble with your pet. We will also go over diet, preventative medicine, and exercise to ensure that your pet is as healthy as possible.
Then, one of our veterinarians will do a complete physical examination on your pet. It is always good to have a baseline in case your pet ever becomes ill. We also want to monitor your pet’s weight, ensuring that your pet stays a healthy weight. It is much easier to start a diet when a pet is a pound overweight instead of fifteen!
We recommend exams to be performed every 6 months. An animal’s life proceeds 7 times faster than a human’s. Tthis means that having an exam every 6 months is like a human going to the doctor every 3.5 years. The more often your pet is regularly seen, the more quickly we can diagnose diseases. Often times when a disease is found, a change in diet may be all that is needed to help control it.
Our veterinarian will also look for any potential problems. Our goal is to catch any problems before they become major ones. The sooner that we are able to catch a problem, the easier it is to treat it and the more likely that your pet will make a full recovery!
