Pet Wellness Exams in Rochester
Routine Checkups from South Towne Animal Hospital
If you’re a pet parent, you undoubtedly want your pet to live as long as possible. As pet parents ourselves, we feel the exact same way. That’s why South Towne Veterinary Hospital offers pet wellness exams in Rochester. These routine exams allow us to assess your pet’s overall health and detect if there are any problems that may need to be addressed before they grow into more complicated matters. Our goal is to keep your pet healthy and happy for many years to come. Wellness exams are an integral piece of that mission.
This annual exam allows us to get a comprehensive understanding of your pet’s current health. If he or she is experiencing any problems, this is the perfect opportunity to let us know so that we can try to find the root cause and provide the appropriate solution. These appointments also give us a chance to get to know your pet and understand his or her health needs, providing us with a baseline of information for future visits.
These check-ups consist of:
- Physical exams
- Screenings for common diseases such as heartworm and Lyme disease
- Important vaccinations
- Food and nutrition guidance
- Oral exam
This annual pet exam is the equivalent of a human going to the doctor once every three years. In some cases, your pet may require more frequent exams, especially as they reach their later stages of life.
Thorough Physical Exams
It’s very important to us that we provide the most thorough exam possible when you bring your pet into our office. Animals are great at hiding pain or illness, which makes it even more crucial that we assess every inch of your animal from ears to tail.
Our physical exams include:
- Checking their body weight
- Looking at the eyes, ears, and nose
- Checking the lymph nodes
- Looking in the mouth to assess the health of the teeth and gums
- Evaluating the heart and lungs
- Feeling the abdomen to check the internal organs including the kidneys and liver
- Evaluating the muscles, spine, and joints
- Evaluating the nervous system
- Checking the urogenital organs
After the examination, we carefully document our findings and give you our recommendations for any health problems we find.
