Why You Should Schedule a Wellness Exam for Your Pet

The new year is the perfect time to start taking better care of yourself, as well as your furry friends. Just like humans, pets need regular wellness exams to stay healthy and happy. Here at Ridgeline Veterinary Clinic, we want to make sure that your pet is living their healthiest life. Bringing in your pet for an annual wellness exam plays a vital part in that. Read on to learn more about why a wellness exam can be so important, and why you should schedule one of your pets right now.  

What is a Pet Wellness Exam? 

A wellness exam is an annual check-up to help ensure that your pet is healthy. During this visit, your veterinarian will review your pet’s records, conduct a physical examination, discuss any concerns or changes you may have noticed in their behavior or appearance, and answer any questions you may have about nutrition or health care needs. 

What Can You Expect from A Pet Wellness Exam? 

We understand how important it is for you and your pet to feel comfortable during the visit. Our experienced team of veterinarians and vet techs will take their time to explain everything thoroughly, as well as answer any questions you may have about your pet's health or behavior. We strive to make sure every visit is informative and enjoyable for both you and your pet! 

The Benefits of Wellness Exams 

Taking your pet for regular wellness exams can help identify any potential health issues before they become serious problems. Early detection can lead to early treatment, which helps prevent further complications from arising down the road and can even save lives. Regular wellness exams also allow you to stay up-to-date on vaccinations and other necessary care that often get overlooked when we are busy with our day-to-day lives. 

Lastly, regular wellness exams allow your vets to build a connection with your pet, so they get to know them better, which will help them provide more personalized service tailored specifically to your pet's individual needs.
