Routine Exams

The Importance of Preventive Care

Annual routine exams are pet checkups, critical to helping your dog or cat maintain good long-term physical health.

Combined with regular vaccinations, parasite prevention and proper nutrition, these routine examinations include regular physical checkups to give your pet the best chance at optimal lifelong health.

Routine exams allow your veterinarian to check up on your dog or cat’s overall health, offer advice on preventing serious health issues from developing, and catch issues early, when they are most treatable.


With recent advances in veterinary medical knowledge and care, as well as newer therapies and better nutrition, geriatric dogs and cats continue to live longer than ever.

As your pet ages, regular wellness examinations become increasingly important to ensure their continuing health and longevity.

In addition to the annual routine procedures we perform on all adult pets, we will give special attention to your senior pet’s potential age-related conditions, such as arthritis or decreased vision. Additional laboratory tests will also provide information about your geriatric pet’s overall health.

Vaccinations & Prevention

During your pet’s routine wellness exam, the veterinarian will also check whether they require preventive care, or if your dog is due for any routine vaccinations.
