Pet Wellness Exam FAQs

Like people, pets benefit from routine checkups to monitor their health. Annual wellness exams from Augusta Ranch Animal Hospital in Mesa can accomplish this purpose. These FAQs from our Mesa veterinarian explain more about wellness exams and how they can benefit your pet.

What is a wellness exam?

Wellness exams are annual vet checkups that help monitor your pet’s health. Our veterinarian will inspect your pet from head to tail for signs of sickness or disease. We may also perform blood, urine, and stool tests to uncover nonobvious health issues.

What can I expect from a pet wellness exam?

First, we’ll review your pet’s medical history to get an idea of past injuries or health conditions. We’ll discuss your pet’s diet, exercise regimen, and behavior to better understand his lifestyle and answer any questions you may have concerning his care.

Then our veterinarian will give your pet a thorough physical exam to ensure he’s in good health. We’ll check your pet’s eyes, nose, ears, mouth, fur, and skin, listen to his heart and lungs, and examine his joints. We may perform diagnostic tests to verify your pet’s medical condition.

What are the benefits of wellness exams?

Early warning signs of sickness or health conditions can be detected during your pet’s wellness exam. This enables your pet to get immediate treatment before any conditions worsen or diseases have a chance to spread. Early detection and treatment of health issues help expedite your pet’s recovery.

What other services are available through preventative care?

We offer the following vet care services as part of preventative care:

  • Vaccinations
  • Parasite control
  • Dental exams, cleanings, and treatment
  • Spay/neuter procedures
  • Heartworm testing and treatment

How often should my pet have a wellness exam?

We recommend annual wellness exams for your kit or pup. Senior pets may need an exam semi-annually, depending on their age and health.
