Pet Wellness Exams With Your Solana Beach Veterinarian

There are many reasons to make sure your pet is up to date on their wellness exams. At Academy Animal Hospital we want to take the worry out of pet care. We know that visiting the vet can be stressful for some animals.  We do our best to make sure that our patients are comfortable and even happy when they come in for their appointments.  Bandanas with "calming" pheromones are provided to all nervous pets along with yummy treats, peanut butter, and cheese!  We serve the pets of Solana Beach, Del Mar, Rancho Santa Fe, and surrounding areas. 

Pets at the Veterinary ClinicWhat Is Included in Your Pet's Wellness Exam?

When it comes to a pet's comprehensive exam it is much like a human checkup except instead of head to toe, we call it snout to tail. First, we discuss your pet's history with you while getting to know your pet and putting him/her at ease. During the discussion about your pet's history, we will begin taking their vitals and other information to look for any issues and to have a baseline for what is normal for the animal. Your pet's weight will be recorded and an inspection of his body systems will be performed to check for any abnormalities. If a blood test, vaccination, or other treatment is needed, it will be done towards the end of the exam. Your pet's appointment is complete once all of your concerns have been addressed and everything appears normal. If there are abnormalities, we may need to order further testing to find out why. You and the doctor will discuss any needed treatment options and make a decision together before moving forward.

Reasons to Stay Up to Date On Your Pet's Veterinary Care

Your pet cannot tell you that something is off with their bodies. In fact, it is natural for an animal to hide symptoms from an evolutionary standpoint because it shows weakness to other animals. When you bring your pet in for his/her wellness check, we can treat them with preventative care to ensure they are free from parasites, cavities, and other conditions. Our doctors will be able to catch a problem before it grows out of control. Preventative medicine is lifesaving for pets.
