Annual check-ups and physical examinations are just as important for your pet as vaccinations. Even though your pet may be in perfect health, they still need an annual veterinary examination. This is key to giving your pet a long, healthy life. The annual examination involves much more than just a routine check-up. Early warning signs of serious problems are often discovered during these examinations. When detected early, many problems can be prevented or delayed.

The veterinary team at Vets on Parker pride themselves on performing thorough physical examinations and discussing in detail the health of your pet. Our aim is to provide you with the most complete information about the health of your pet, and provide you, the owner, with all the treatment options necessary.

Common problems encountered during a physical examination are:

  • Dental disease
  • Obesity
  • Skin tumours
  • Abdominal tumours
  • Heart murmurs
  • Diabetes
  • Ear infections
  • Anal gland infections or impactions

There is quite a lot of information than can be uncovered during an annual examination. Some cats and dogs may become ill and never show any signs before it is too late to treat them. Making sure your pet has an annual vet examination is the best way to ensure their continued health and longevity.
