At Fox Creek Veterinary Hospital, we recommend that your pet receives a full physical examination by one of our licensed veterinarians every year. While most pet owners recognize the importance of taking their animals to the vet whenever they are sick, wellness examinations are also very important. Here, we can help pick up on small concerns before they become bigger problems, potentially saving you frustration, money, and heartbreak down the line. During a wellness exam, your veterinarian will examine your pet systemically, paying special attention to:
- Skin and coat
- Mouth, gums, and teeth
- Lymph nodes
- Gait, limbs, and musculoskeletal system
- Heart and lungs
In addition to performing a thorough wellness exam, our veterinarians can also address behavior concerns during your visit. Your pet’s health is our primary concern, and we want to make sure your animal stays happy and healthy as long as he or she can.
Annual veterinary examination is one way to help achieve that goal. Please give us a call at 636-458-6569 for more information.
