Animals of All Kinds Need Consistent, Regular Professional Medical Attention

Veterinary wellness checkups enable you to help ensure that your pet receives the proper diagnostic, examination and preventative treatments necessary to ensure optimal health on a daily basis.

Annual Wellness Checkups

When your pet gets their annual wellness checkup, here’s what you can expect. First, your pet will be checked over in a general way that starts with a physical examination. This is done to help catch any obvious potential problems such as deformities, growths, areas of pain or discomfort, or motility issues.

During the visit, you’ll discuss your pet’s health at home, 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 to ensure that all preventative treatments are brought up to date during the annual wellness checkup. These may include things like:

  • Vaccinations
  • Parasite control treatments

Wellness Services

Annual wellness checkups provide the chance for your pet to receive needed diagnostic procedures and treatment in a wide range of service areas. Additional services that may be conducted during your pet’s annual veterinary check-up include items such as:

  • Microchipping
  • Dental examination
  • Preventative blood testing
  • Intestinal parasite testing
  • Heartworm testing/treatment
  • Feline Leukemia/FIV testing
  • and more

Wellness Checkups for Special Situations

Consistent wellness checkups are also crucial for pets that fall into special categories, such as aging pets and puppies and kittens.

Senior Pet Care
Older pets often develop a range of age-related issues, such as loss of appetite, mobility challenges, and failing eyesight. Veterinary wellness checkups support the healthy aging of your beloved pet to help ensure the quality of life for as long as possible.

Puppy and Kitten Care
At a minimum, you should strive to have your new puppy or kitten visit when they are about eight weeks of age. Early wellness checkups can reveal health conditions you should be aware of, as well as build a baseline of health that can be used throughout your new pet’s life. In addition, if you’re a new pet owner, you can receive valuable advice and tips on caring for your young pet, such as tooth brushing techniques and parasite control.

These are just some of the many services and treatment options available during routine veterinary wellness checkups at Mancelona Veterinary Hospital. We are dedicated to providing the most advanced care for your pet in Mancelona, and we can’t wait to be a part of your pet’s whole life health!
