Countryside Vet Wellness Exams

Dog Wellness Exam

Dogs

All dogs benefit from an annual wellness exam. A full physical exam, any needed lab tests, and vaccine recommendations will help your pet maintain maximum health and vitality. Fecal testing will insure your dog stays worm-free, and blood tests, if they appear needed, can pinpoint illness that has not yet shown obvious signs. Of course, as dogs age, or become ill, they may need more frequent exams and monitoring.

 

Cat Wellness Exam

Cats

Cats also need a yearly check-up, and may require vaccinations. Cats are notorious for hiding their ailments, so a full physical exam of your cat will insure that any changes in your cat’s health will be addressed, and potential problems discussed. Dr. Hood will check weight, skin and coat, teeth, ears and eyes, heart and general body condition. He’ll also check for parasites or other unexpected problems. Senior cats - 7 years and up – benefit from twice-yearly exams, as they are more prone to illness or other troubles. Early detection can mean a longer and more comfortable life for your cat.
