As your pet gets older it is important to perform an annual physical examination to detect problems early. We will take thorough history by asking you questions about your pet’s habits, such as changes to water intake and appetite. Then we will perform a physical examination from nose to tail, checking the ears, eyes, nose, mouth, chest, abdomen, and finally checking the body temperature. We will discuss with you our findings and recommend necessary lifestyle changes if needed. As your pet ages, it is also important to perform blood tests to check for changes not evident on the physical exam. Blood testing will help assess the liver, the kidneys, and other vital organs.
