PREVENTATIVE HEALTHCARE AT ALL AGES CAN PROLONG YOUR PETS LIFE
Annual Wellness Exam
In general, all pets should have a complete physical check-up at least once per year. Think of it as routine maintenance for your beloved pet. These wellness exams give you a chance to track your pet’s growth and development and discuss any concerns with your vet. Most importantly, annual examinations are a key part of preventative care.
Preventative care is an umbrella term for all the stuff you do to take care of your pets: good nutrition, appropriate exercise, and regular vet care. The idea is that by taking your pet for routine wellness exams, you can make informed choices that benefit their health. You’ll also find out about illnesses or issues early, which can be key in successful treatment.
During annual wellness exams at Kelowna Veterinary Hospital, we will give your pet an all-over check-up by listening closely to their heart and lungs, and examining their eyes, mouth, ears, etc. After the exam, our team may make recommendations specific to your pet's health status.
