Your pet can benefit greatly from yearly wellness examinations or checkups at our animal clinic in Charlotte, NC. Wellness examinations provide an excellent opportunity for our animal hospital to conduct a thorough physical examination and develop a health profile for your pet. This information will help us identify medical problems and any other issues that can affect your pet’s health and quality of life.
During the wellness exam, the doctor examines fifteen parameters plus he evaluates your pet’s weight and body condition. We’ll use the wellness visit to ask you questions about your pet’s behavior, appetite, exercise habits, and regular activities at home. This is also an excellent time for us to discuss any routine diagnostic testing that may benefit your pet or to recommend any vaccinations that may be due. If your pet seems healthy, a wellness examination is a good opportunity to note any changes, such as weight gain or loss or other subtle changes that may not be evident at home. Sometimes, information obtained during a wellness examination can help detect early signs of illness and address health issues before they progress. It is also a good time for you to ask any questions you have about your pet’s health, diet, behavior, or other concerns.

As part of a wellness program, vaccines play a vital role in keeping your pet healthy. Vaccines help protect pets from deadly infectious diseases. Unfortunately, many infectious diseases pose a significant threat to dogs and cats that are unvaccinated. Although vaccine programs have been highly successful and vaccines are considered routine today, keeping your pet’s vaccines current is the only way to keep your pet protected. Not every pet needs every available vaccine. Some vaccines are considered core vaccines and should be administered to all pets, whereas other vaccines are optional and may be recommended for pets based on a variety of factors, such as their risk for exposure to each disease. Vaccine recommendations can also change throughout a pet’s life, as travel habits and other variables change. We will consider all these factors as we determine which vaccines your pet should have.
