Whether your pet is 10 months or 10 years of age, it needs healthcare check-ups on a regular basis so that you can be sure that they are healthy. Exploits Valley Animal Hospital offers comprehensive pet wellness exams in Grand Falls-Windsor for dogs, cats, exotic and small animals of all ages. Routine wellness exams are not only important for your pet’s health but also for revealing any underlying conditions that can be treated if diagnosed early.
Annual Physical Exams and Vaccine Risk Assessment
Annual physical exams are important for your pet’s health and are specified to meet the needs of your pet according to their age and individual lifestyle. During a physical exam, our veterinarians review:
The heart and lungs for any abnormalities or defects
The teeth and gums to look for any signs of dental disease or gingivitis
The eyes and ears to check for any changes or abnormalities such as ulcers, cataracts, or infection
The skin and coat to check for any changes such as hair loss, dry skin, lumps, or change in pigment
The abdomen to palpate the organs to check the size, check for pain, or any unusual lumps
The urogenital area for any discharge, bleeding, or physical changes
The limbs and feet for checking any limping, muscle changes, or signs of weakness or arthritis
The medical history and any current medication dosages will be assessed to ensure your pet is on the correct dose
The everyday habits, housing and nutrition are also discussed
We also perform a vaccine risk assessment during your pet’s physical exam to determine the necessity of vaccination. During the consultation, our veterinarians will discuss your pet’s exposure to diseases, immunity issues, previous vaccine history and its individual needs.
We carry a range of products to suit any life stage or specific needs of your pet. We also offer nutritional planning and counselling to help take quality care of your pet.
If your pet is on a special diet for curing a disease or requires a specific diet that is not routinely sold at our hospital, we may be able to order it for you. We now carry various products for puppy and adult pets.
