Wellness exams are an important part of preventative care. By scheduling a yearly wellness exam, our veterinarians will be able to catch medical problems and diseases in their early stages. Wellness exams give us an opportunity to make recommendations for treatments that improve your pet’s quality of life and extend your pet’s lifespan.

What to Expect from Your Branchburg Veterinarian

Wellness exams usually involve a thorough examination of your pet’s body, international functions, and behavior. 

Full-body examination- Our vets will check your pet's skin, coat, eyes, ears, nose, mouth, teeth and physical movement.

Weight- We will also weigh your pet to find out whether or not your pet is a healthy weight.  Once your pet is weighed it will be determined if your pet is at a healthy weight for his or her size or make recommendations for treatment if necessary.

If our our vets evaluate your pet and find anything of concern, we will make recommendations for treatment. Wellness exams are also a good time to catch up on vaccinations and any other routine care.

How Often Your Pet Needs an Exam

We recommend that most pets get a wellness exam at least once a year. For pets who have had serious medical conditions in the past or are seniors (9 years of age and older) we may recommend exams and blood work every 6 months.

In addition, it’s a good idea to bring your pet in for a checkup any time that you notice new symptoms or signs of illness. Our veterinarians can help you make sense of symptoms and get your pet the treatment he or she needs to stay well.

Wellness Exams are Good for Pet Owners Too!

Wellness exams are more than a checkup for pets. During your pet’s wellness exam, you’ll have an opportunity to talk to your pet’s veterinarian. Over time, you may accumulate questions about your pet’s habits and behaviors. This is a time to ask the veterinarian questions. This will help ensure that you are able to take good care of your pet.
