Wellness Exams

Your pet’s health is always our number one priority, which is why for most pets we recommend annual wellness exams to ensure that your animal companion remains in good health. If your pet is a senior–over seven for dogs, over nine 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.

The Importance of Annual Wellness Exams for Pets

Annual exams are important in maintaining at monitoring your pet’s health. A kitten wellness check, for example, can make sure that your kitten is starting off healthy and strong. As the kitten grows, a cat wellness exam every year can make sure your cat is staying healthy. A dog wellness exam includes checking for parasites and other physical abnormalities.

Strothertowne Pet Hospital’s veterinarian-performed physical exams comprehensively assess every aspect of your pet’s health.
