For most of us, keeping our pets healthy and safe is nearly as important as keeping the rest of our family safe. Pets are truly an extension of our families, and we want to keep them feeling great through every facet of their life. Ongoing veterinary care is an essential part of keeping them well. An annual wellness exam is critical in keeping your pet healthy. At South Hall Veterinary Hospital in Oakwood, we take the health of your pet seriously. Our team will be on the lookout for possible health issues that could impact your pet if left unchecked.
Our Thorough Pet Exam
During your pet's annual wellness check, we will perform a complete exam to ensure he or she is healthy. During this exam, our veterinarian will examine your pet's eyes, nose, and mouth. We will listen to your pet's heart and lungs. We will also examine your pet's skin and fur to check for allergies and skin conditions. We will also want to watch your pet walk to observe his or her gait.
If you want your pets to live a long and healthy life, you need to make sure that they are up to date on their vaccinations. We will administer any vaccinations that your pet may need during your pet's annual visit. If you have a kitten or puppy, our team will ensure he or she is on the right vaccination schedule.
If your pet is going to remain happy and healthy, he or she will need preventative medications. Flea and tick prevention medication is essential in protecting your pet from an infestation. Also, ticks carry serious diseases, making these medications essential. Heartworm disease is a severe condition, and without proper treatment, it can result in death. To be sure that your pet is protected, he or she will need to take a heartworm pill every month. During your pet's annual exam, you can order whatever medications your pet may need.
