For a Thorough Pet Wellness Exam, Pet Owner Participation is Key
Maintaining your pet’s annual wellness examination is one of the most important things you can do for your pet. Wellness exams offer your veterinarian the chance to detect any subtle changes in your pet’s health, weight, muscle mass, dental health, and numerous other factors. As your pet ages, previous exams will act as a baseline to help determine the best approach to prevention-based care, as well as contribute to healthy aging.
But, there is more to a wellness visit than just the examination and diagnostics themselves; this is your chance as a pet owner to communicate what you observe every day. Your observations – from behavioral changes to increased accidents or noticeable anxiety – all contribute to the most thorough wellness exam possible. Your understanding of your pet goes a long way to increasing his quality of life and happiness.
Preparing for a Pet Wellness Exam
To help get the most out of your pet’s examination, there are steps you can take prior to his or her appointment. Keeping track of your pet’s background, health history, and daily habits contributes to the effectiveness of preventive care and gives your veterinary care team valuable information.
