How to Protect Your Pet’s Health
Veterinary bills can be expensive. Maintaining proper care of your pet and bringing them in for the recommended visits will mean lower vet costs in general because we can detect and treat many diseases and illnesses before drastic measures must be taken.
You can help in preventing future unnecessary veterinary visits by:
- Enrolling in our Wellness Program and scheduling the recommended visits
- Keeping up to date with immunizations
- Administering any suggested and prescribed medications
- Using flea and tick preventative product monthly year round
- Using heartworm preventative product monthly
- Feeding your pet a healthy and nutritious diet
- Brushing your pet’s teeth and fur daily
- Taking your pet on walks and giving them enough exercise
- Regularly getting your pet groomed (how often depends on the individual animal)
Routine Physical Examinations
One of the most important parts of a routine wellness visit is the physical examination. Our veterinarians perform these exams with great care, keeping your pet’s comfort in mind throughout the process.
Our physical exams include a head-to-tail assessment during which we will:
- Check body weight and temperature
- Look at the eyes, ears, and nose
- Check the lymph nodes
- Look in the mouth to assess the health of the teeth and gums
- Evaluate the heart and lungs
- Feel the abdomen to check the internal organs including the kidneys and liver
- Evaluate the muscles, spine, and joints
After the examination, our Campbell Hall veterinarians carefully document their findings and give you their recommendations for any health problems they find.
