At Vets on Parker we recommend yearly health checks for your dog. They play a crucial role in keeping your pet happy and healthy.

During your dog’s yearly health check up and physical examination we evaluate your pet thoroughly and completely. We take the time to ask you lots of questions and we listen.

How comprehensive are these exams? Very! We start at their nose and work our way to their tail!

  • Ear Exam
  • Eye Exam
  • Rectal exam
  • Dental exam
  • Neurologic evaluation
  • Cardiovascular evaluation
  • Weight & nutrition counselling
  • Coat & skin evaluation
  • Abdominal palpation
  • Urinary system evaluation
  • Reproductive system
  • Musculoskeletal evaluation
  • Lung evaluation
  • Behavioural counselling

Why every year?

The early stages of many illnesses can silently develop inside a perfectly healthy-looking dog. Dogs age far more quickly than we do, becoming middle-aged by the time they are 4!

We want to diagnose and treat problems early when your pet is still feeling fine. Plus, detecting a problem early can help ensure a better prognosis, more simple treatment, an earlier recovery and reduced medical expenses.

Once your pet is over the age of seven, Vets on Parker recommends twice a year check ups. See our senior dogs page for more information.
