Importance of Regular Wellness Exams

Wellness Exams With Animal Medical Center in Lubbock, TX

Just like your regular wellness exams help to monitor, treat, and even prevent any medical issues, wellness exams for your pet can do the same. At Animal Medical Center in Lubbock, TX, we understand that your pet is more than just a pet- he or she is a member of your family. That is why we provide the best possible care we can, starting with wellness exams.

Benefits of Regular Wellness Exams

Animals can face as many medical troubles as humans. Unfortunately, they cannot verbalize any symptoms or pain they are experiencing. Regular wellness exams help monitor your pet’s overall health, keep an eye out for any changes, and discover any painful problems.

Through these wellness exams, your veterinarian can determine any treatment, medication, and even surgeries your pet may need. They can often spot issues before they become big issues, meaning that many pet parents are able to nip serious trouble in the bud before it causes too much pain and suffering.

What Is Included In Veterinarian Wellness Exams?

Wellness exams focus on the whole being, from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail. The veterinarian will check your pet’s ears and vision, take a deep look in the mouth for signs of tooth or gum problems, check for abnormalities, look for and treat digestive issues, and anything else the veterinarian feels is necessary to gauge your pet’s overall health.

For many pets, a yearly wellness exam is enough. Under some circumstances, though, you may need one more often. Young pets, usually in their first year of life, require more frequent visits as do those in the older ages. Still, unless your veterinarian says otherwise, every six months or so is enough. If your pet has chronic health issues, though, your veterinarian will probably advise getting wellness exams much more frequently.
