Annual & General Wellness Exams

Regular physical examinations are extremely important for your pet.

At Crestone Mobile Vet we recommend a complete physical examination for your pet annually, and every six months for senior patients.

These examinations include:

  • Inspection of the ear canals and eardrums
  • Evaluation of the eyes and your pet’s vision
  • Inspection of the teeth
  • Palpation of the lymph nodes
  • Evaluation of the heart and lungs
  • Examination of the fur and skin
  • Palpation of the abdominal organs

Examinations can spot problems before they become serious health issues and detect a variety of illnesses which may cause discomfort for your pet and become costly to treat if not addressed promptly. Routine examinations also give us an opportunity to develop a picture of your pet’s overall health.

Your pets can’t talk and instinctually cover up symptoms of illness as a natural survival method. Annual blood testing can help with early diagnosis of potential diseases before they become serious. Catching a disease early may add years to your pet’s life.

These tests can lead to the diagnosis of treatable diseases such as:

  • Diabetes
  • Anemia
  • Infection and inflammation
  • Kidney disease
  • Thyroid problems

Performing these tests while your pet is young and presumably healthy gives us a baseline to compare with for the rest of your pet’s life. If your pet becomes ill, it will be much easier to interpret the results to make an accurate diagnosis of his or her condition.
