Part of that responsibility may include finding a trustworthy veterinarian to care for your pet. To help you keep your pet happy and healthy, we invite you to visit our South Granville Animal Hospital veterinary team if you live in the Creedmoor, NC, area. Our vet, Dr. Dudley, and her team looks forward to welcoming your pet to our office.

What Is a Pet Wellness Exam?

Although we are glad to help with pet illnesses or emergencies, we encourage you to schedule an annual wellness exam for your pets. Our staff will welcome and interact with your pet at a yearly exam to ensure his comfort. We may weigh your pet, measure his vital signs, and observe how it walks. We may also ask about your pet’s diet, activity, and any health-related symptoms you may have noticed.

What Does a Wellness Exam Entail?

There are a number of things we may look at during a wellness exam. Our veterinarian may examine the pet’s coat for the quality of his hair and look inside his ears, nose, and mouth. We may also gently examine the pet’s stomach and feel for unusual protrusions. Your pet’s legs may also be examined for any bone problems or deformities.

Additionally, tests may be taken to determine the possible presence of certain diseases. Some of those tests include checking for heartworm or different diseases we may suspect your pet has, such as diabetes and liver problems.

A pet wellness exam is also a great time to update your pet on his vaccines.
