At Toronto veterinary clinic, Yonge Street Animal Hospital, we're inclined to believe, as so many of our clients do, that our four-footed companions transcend friendship to become family. And like family, they need to be taken care of starting with an annual check-up including physical, blood tests, dental, etc.
Perhaps the best way to think of an annual check-up for your cat or dog is as a "wellness exam" or healthcare maintenance and management that starts from the presumption that your pet is healthy, in other words, what we would consider an annual physical exam for ourselves.
Whether a feline or canine patient, the protocol is routine, typical and similar for each species. During the wellness exam you can expect your veterinarian to ask about your pet's diet, exercise, breathing, thirst, elimination patterns and other general quality of life circumstances. Beyond the oral examination, physical component of the exam typical starts with weight, walking and standing, whether your pet appears bright and alert, coat condition, skin, eyes, nose, face, ears mouth and teeth.
Beyond the oral and physical exam components, your vet will also listen to both the heart and lungs (breathing) to ensure no underlying issues. And finally, your vet will palpate or feel specific areas of the animal including but not limited to the pulse, lymph nodes, legs, abdomen and other areas around the kidneys, stomach and liver.
Following the check-up and exam, your Yonge Street Animal Hospital veterinarian will typically make preventive medication recommendations and treatment suggestions including for example, updating vaccinations, parasite control including fleas, ticks, internal parasites and heartworm and any weight management issues identified. Depending on your pet's age, blood work may also be required.
