What Happens During Your Pet’s Yearly Checkup

A complete physical exam often begins with taking the weight and involves taking the pet's temperature, commonly 101 to 102.5 degrees Fahrenheit, for canines and felines.

A visual examination will check for clean skin, bright eyes, and a lustrous coat, which are all signs of excellent health. A lousy diet causes some issues. It is conceivable that modifying your diet or taking a supplement recommended by your veterinarian might help you get your pet back on track in weeks.

An examination of the ears is needed, particularly in dogs with floppy ears trapping germs. Some canines, such as the Cocker Spaniel, deal with recurring ear issues. Your veterinarian will most likely advise you on the best method for home treatment and, if required, prescribe medication.

The veterinarian uses a stethoscope to check for clean lungs and an excellent heart rate. If your vet discovers an anomaly, additional study is required. The vet will also examine the other internal organs, such as the liver and kidneys, including those in your pet's bottom.

A veterinarian's examination of the mouth is also required. Loose or rotten teeth, diseased gums, and other issues can cause discomfort in your pet without your knowledge. Even if your pet only has foul breath and does not have any teeth problems, teeth cleaning is still necessary.

Your pet will benefit from regular health and wellness checks at your veterinary animal hospital Marietta GA.
