Your pet’s health is always our number one priority, which is why we recommend annual wellness exams for pets of all ages to ensure that your animal companion remains in good health.
Comprehensive wellness exams are the most important. Pets can not communicate when they are not feeling well. Our veterinarians are trained to detect abnormalities such as heart murmurs, ear and eye conditions, joint problems, organ enlargements, and other signs of diseases that most owners are not able to discover.
What to Expect During an Annual Wellness Exam
Cedar Ridge Animal Hospital’s veterinarian-performed physical exams comprehensively assess every aspect of your pet’s health. Wellness exams typically include:
- Ear exam
- Eye exam
- Rectal exam
- Dental exam
- Skeletal exam
- Reproductive system exam
- Internal health evaluation
- Neurological evaluation
- Cardiovascular evaluation
- Nutrition consultation
- Behavior counseling
Puppy and Kitten Wellness exam
Are you a proud new puppy or kitten parent? As a new parent, our veterinarians advice is to make sure you stay on top of your new pet’s first wellness exam. Cedar Ridge Animal Hospital‘s veterinarian focuses on making their first wellness exam as fun and beneficial as possible. We also take the time to make sure you have all of the tools and knowledge to properly raise the newest member of your family.
Senior Pet Preventative Care
Our veterinarians strongly believe in preventative medicine. Many diseases and health problems are more common in senior pets. Early detection and treatment are the key to helping your pet live a long, healthy life.
If your pet is a senior — over seven years old for dogs, over nine years old for cats — we strongly suggest twice-yearly exams and blood screenings. That’s because pets age more rapidly than humans, meaning disease and illness develop faster as well.
Our senior wellness programs are designed specifically for your pet and include:
- A comprehensive wellness exam
- Senior blood work
- Intestinal parasite testing
- Heartworm and flea control
