At Bay Park Veterinary Clinic, our San Diego veterinarian generally recommends a comprehensive wellness exam at least once a year for pets of typical health. For older pets or pets with known health issues, more frequent exams may be needed. If it’s been more than a year since your pet’s last wellness exam, now is a great time to schedule one with our caring and compassionate Bay Park Veterinary Clinic team.
The Importance of Routine Wellness Exams
The main purpose of a wellness exam is to establish a baseline for your pet’s health and make sure there haven’t been any major changes in your pet’s health since his or her last appointment. A routine wellness exam is also ideal for spotting potential signs of underlying medical conditions, which can allow for early diagnosis of serious illnesses and diseases. As a result of earlier diagnosis, we may have a better chance at successful treatment or management. And of course, if no issues are detected during your pet’s exam, this provides peace of mind when it comes to your pet’s health and wellness. These appointments also give you, as a pet owner, the opportunity to meet with our veterinary team and bring up any questions or concerns you may have about your pet’s health.
When your pet comes in for a wellness exam with us, we’ll take the time to check your pet’s temperature, weight, and vital signs. We’ll also evaluate the health of your pet’s coat, teeth, ears, and more to give you a better idea of your pet’s health. We can also make recommendations regarding further testing, nutritional changes, and other advice to optimize your pet’s health and quality of life.
