Pet Wellness Exam

Pet Wellness Exam At Creekside Animal Wellness Center

Cats and dogs require routine checkups by our veterinarian to keep them in the best of health. If you recently brought a new pet into your home, it is important to contact Creekside Animal Hospital and Wellness Center to schedule an appointment for a wellness exam. We service the Lafayette & West Lafayette areas and provide preventative as well as routine vet care to our patients. Here is some information about what you can expect when you bring your cat or dog to our veterinarian for a wellness examination.

Pet Wellness Exam At Creekside Animal Wellness Center

Why Comprehensive Examinations Are Necessary For Pets

Your cat or dog cannot speak to you to alert you when something is ailing them. Our veterinarian will perform routine wellness exams to determine your pet's medical condition throughout their life. Regular exams will alert our veterinarian about any changes in your pet's health so treatment can be administered quickly and effectively.

What A Wellness Exam Entails

Our vet will first ask you questions about your pet's behavior and any signs of difficulty that you may have noticed. This will give them a starting point when checking your pet's body to help them recognize signals that a problem is present. Your pet will be weighed at each visit to ensure their dietary needs are being met. Vitals are taken as well. Afterward, our veterinarian will perform a nose to tail check of each of your pet's body parts to ensure there are no problems to be addressed.

This includes a check of your pet's skin as its condition could indicate whether your pet's overall health is in trouble. The eyes are checked for discharge, redness, and the presence of cataracts. The ears are checked for signs of ear mites or growths. Your cat or dog's nose is checked for abnormalities and the teeth are checked for signs of infection or broken portions. The teeth are also cleaned during your pet's appointment. A full-body examination is performed where our vet feels the abdomen, legs, and joints for any lumps. A stethoscope is then used to check the heart and lungs for abnormal sounds.

Preventative Actions Are Taken For Your Pet's Health

When your pet's wellness exam is finished, our veterinarian will discuss the importance of taking preventative measures to keep your pet healthy and safe. This includes protecting your pet against parasitic infestations, providing your pet with a microchip in case they become separated with you, and immunizing your pet so that they do not contract harmful diseases and other conditions.

    Natalie F.
  • "This was our first time to visit Creekside. Do to the Corona Virus we needed to pull into the parking lot and call to let them know we were there. To my surprise the Doctor came to the car in person. I must say that I had a very good impression of her. I was very satisfied with the service we received there. After she completed the exam she called us to explain the results of the exam and answer any questions we had. At this time I would recommend them highly."
    Robert J.
  • "We have been coming to Creekside for 4 years now. I could not imagine going anywhere else! They have always been very patient with all of our questions & they were all very supportive when our dogs helped themselves to a bag of chocolate. I always know that when I have to leave our furbabies at Creekside for the day that will be well taken care of."
