Puppy & Kitten Pet Exams

Because their immune systems are underdeveloped, young puppies and kittens are vulnerable to many diseases, some of which are life-threatening. Our vets will walk you through the pet vaccination schedule required for kittens and pups, which typically require a few follow-up sessions for booster doses. These vaccines include those mandated by law (i.e., rabies), "core" vaccines (e.g., distemper), and "non-core" vaccines which are given based on your animal's lifestyle (e.g., kennel cough).

Puppy and kitty pet exams are also a great time to ask our vet team about spay and neuter procedures. We typically recommend this procedure is done around age 6-9 months in puppies and 4-6 months in cats, although puppies and kittens as young as 8-weeks-old can be sterilized as long as they are healthy.

Annual Pet Wellness Exams for the Adult Animals

Once your pet has reached its adult age, we recommend bringing him or her in to see us once per year. This is because, like humans, our pets are at risk for certain diseases and health conditions as they age. Regular exams are an important way to screen, provide early detection for, and hopefully prevent various conditions.

Here are a few things we may request during a typical pet exam with your adult cat or dog:

• A thorough physical examination (we'll look at your pet's tail, body, limbs, skin, coat, nails, ears, eyes, and nose)

• Fecal testing and urine analysis

• Weight

• Dental screening

We'll be looking for (and preventing) things like parasites, joint problems, and skin issues. If any issues are detected, our vet staff will go over with you all the possible options for treatment, which can be fully customized to meet your pet's specific needs.

Pet Exams for Senior Pets

Our senior pets (typically age 10 and up for cats and age 7 and up for dogs) go through a lot of changes with their health. That's why we recommend bringing your older cat or dog in to see us at least twice per year. We can provide and adjust medications and give any other services your older pet needs in order to feel and function throughout its golden years.
