Your pet's annual vet check-up will include a total physical exam, with a thorough investigation of your pet's body head to tail. We also will perform a thorough oral exam and will make recommendations on annual teeth cleaning, or teeth floating (for our horse friends!). It's a good idea to keep an accurate medical diary not only of the procedures and vaccinations your pet receives at the vet, but also of notes on things like your pet's elimination habits and any physical changes or unusual occurrences. Keep track of small shifts in your pet's behavior, including urinary marking habits and mood swings, along with diet and routine modifications. Take this notebook when you visit the vet. These seemingly unrelated occurrences may help explain results of your pet's medical tests. Also, if you need to change vets, it's good to have this journal to provide a complete medical history.
Our qualified staff will also be ready to perform procedures requiring anesthesia. Your pet will be monitored with the same technology you would be monitored with if you were to undergo a procedure. Because of the general risks inherent to anesthesia, especially for very old, very young or very ill pets, we will likely suggest a few exams prior, including a chest X-ray and lab work of blood and urine, before your pet is anesthetized. During the procedure they might need an IV drip and antibiotics may be necessary before and after the procedure.
