Wellness Exams in San Antonio - Pet Medical Center of San Antonio
At Pet Medical Center of San Antonio, we enable pet owners to be able to love their pets for as long as possible. While pets do age quicker than humans, it is that much more important to bring your pets in for their annual pet wellness exam. By seeing our veterinarian annually, we are able to discuss your pet’s health and allow an opportunity to ask questions about any existing conditions.
What to Expect from a Comprehensive Wellness Exam
A wellness exam is a type of physical or checkup for your pet, where we conduct a head to tail examination to get a good idea of your pet’s overall health. During this exam, we provide the following:
- Lab tests for their blood profile, urine/stool testing
- Parasite evaluation
We look at your pet’s eyes, ears, nose, and mouth and offer suggestions for teeth cleaning and preventive measures for the sustained health of those key areas. With this overall exam, we check for normal joints function normally and determine if your pet is in any pain. We check their overall weight, temperature, and go over health conditions such as obesity, diabetes, kidney disease, heart disease, and gastro-intestinal problems. At Pet Medical Center of San Antonio, we offer prescription food brands and various products to help better the health and happiness of your pet.
Puppy and Kitten Exams
For pet owners with new puppies and kittens, it is important to note that their immune systems are weaker due to their age. Our wellness exams include vaccinations to protect from diseases and parasites. New pet owners can inquire about best training and house breaking exercises and how to incorporate best preventive dental care practices at home, like brushing teeth. Our San Antonio veterinarians offer year-round flea control, as well as microchipping in case your pet becomes lost.
