What’s Included in a Pet Wellness Exam
Pet wellness exams are prevention-focused. We tailor the exam to your pet’s age, breed, species, and environmental factors. Our veterinarian will begin the wellness visit by discussing your pet’s medical history. We also take time to listen to any concerns you have about their current health. Following our discussion with you, we’ll perform a thorough, nose-to-tail physical exam, and check temperature, pulse, and respiratory rate (TPR).
Afterward, your veterinarian will explain their observations and move on to vaccinations. To prevent overvaccination, we create a customized vaccine protocol based on your pet’s individual needs. Additionally, we’ll discuss parasite prevention with you and address any behavior or nutrition-related concerns.
Parasites are a significant threat for most, if not all, of our animal companions here in Smyrna, Vinings, Marietta, and surrounding areas. Hookworms and roundworms, for instance, are a common problem for pets in the South. Furthermore, fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes all carry disease, to which your pet is vulnerable unless they’re adequately protected. Common parasites and vector-borne diseases include:
At Windy Hill Veterinary Hospital, we can help you keep your beloved companion protected from vector-borne diseases. With the help of parasite screenings and preventatives, we aim to keep them safe and healthy for years to come. When you come in for a wellness visit, we’ll discuss all of your pet’s potential risks and how to minimize them. Give us a call today at (770) 333-9030 to schedule your pet’s wellness appointment.
