Your pet deserves the best in veterinary care in Riverview. Our staff is dedicated to providing ongoing wellness for your family pet.
Animals of all kinds need consistent, regular professional medical attention throughout their lives. Veterinary wellness checkups help to ensure that your pet receives the proper diagnostic and preventative treatments necessary to ensure optimal health on a daily basis.
Annual Wellness Checkups
To help ensure a long and healthy life, it's important to have your pet examined by a veterinarian at least once per year.
During their annual wellness checkup, the doctor starts with a physical examination. This is done to help catch any potential problems such as deformities, growths, areas of pain or discomfort, or motility issues.
During the visit, we'll discuss your pet’s health, and you’ll have the opportunity to convey anything that may be concerning you, such as changes in behavior or appetite, or anything else that’s changed since the last visit. Your vet will also ask you specific questions in order to highlight common potential issues, as well as to get a better sense of the animal’s lifestyle at home.
Next, your pet’s file will be carefully reviewed, with an eye toward ensuring that all preventative treatments and any local government mandated animal treatments are brought up to date during the annual wellness checkup. These may include things like vaccinations, diagnostic testing, and parasite control treatments.
Annual wellness checkups also provide the chance for your pet to receive needed diagnostic procedures and treatment in a wide range of service areas.
Wellness Checkups for Special Situations
Consistent wellness checkups are also crucial for pets that fall into special categories, such as aging pets, and those with chronic illnesses such as diabetes, Cushing's disease, or kidney disease.
We are dedicated to providing the most advanced care for your pet, and we can’t wait to be a part of your pet's whole life health!
