By visiting a veterinarian for pet wellness exams, you can ensure that your pet will live a long and happy life. Early detection and prevention is key when it comes to keeping your loved ones healthy, and this also applies to your furry family members. Your pets can’t tell you when they aren’t feeling well, so it is even more important to have wellness exams regularly. By scheduling regular physical exams for your pet, you can make sure that he or she is in good health.
Wellness exams at Brookhurst Animal Medical Center are performed by Dr. Lopez. Generally, check ups include an examination of weight and overall body condition, activity level, gait, and temperature. While each exam differs based on the breed and size of the animal, a pet check-up will usually include an inspection of the following areas.
It’s very important to make sure that your pet’s teeth and gums are clean and healthy. Dr. Lopez checks your pet’s mouth for signs of infection or inflammation that may make him or her sick.
During the check up, Dr. Lopez will check your pet’s ears for cleanliness and signs of an infection or other problem.
When checking the eyes, Dr. Lopez will look for signs of cataracts, glaucoma, jaundice, allergies, infection, and more.
Much like humans, animals need to maintain a healthy weight. Dr. Lopez looks to make sure that your pet has the proper weight, muscle tone, and any signs of infection.
To make sure that your furry friend can enjoy belly rubs for many years to come, Dr. Lopez will examine the abdominal area to check for any indication of tumors, enlarged organs, or signs of pain.
Lopez inspects under the tail for anal gland issues, tapeworms, and tumors.
Checking for fleas, ticks, mites, skin infections, and lumps is all part of a comprehensive wellness exam at Brookhurst Animal Medical Center.
With age, pets may begin to feel pain in their joints and back. Dr. Lopez will check for pain and tenderness in your pet’s body and choose the best course of action.
Lopez will check your beloved pet’s heart and lungs to make sure they are clear of any issues.
