Why Are Puppy & Kitten Exams Important?

Puppy and kitten exams are crucial in establishing a solid foundation for your pet's life-long health. Our veterinarians will conduct a thorough physical examination to detect signs of illness or injury during these appointments. Additionally, our vets will discuss your pet's nutrition, behavior, and overall wellness to ensure they are on the right track.

Regular exams can help establish a trusting relationship between your pet and our veterinarians, making future visits more comfortable and less stressful for you and your pet.

What Happens During Puppy & Kitten Exams?

Our exams are comprehensive, and our veterinarians will perform a head-to-tail assessment of your pet's physical health. They will examine your pet's eyes, ears, mouth, teeth, and gums for any signs of problems or infections. They will also check your pet's skin and coat for symptoms of allergies, fleas, or ticks.

Our vets will also check your pet's vital signs, including temperature and heart rate. Depending on their findings, they may recommend vaccinations, deworming, or other preventive measures.
