Wellness exams include a comprehensive history gathering, a head-to-tail physical examination and any preventative care services, such as vaccinations, parasite prevention or additional diagnostic screening tests, such as blood, urine or fecal testing for early disease detection.
Puppies and kittens should be seen at 8, 12 and 16 weeks for wellness exams, parasite prevention, vaccinations and preventative health care discussions. After 6 months of age, we recommend a spay/neuter appointment, where they will be examined again to ensure all of their baby teeth have fallen out and collect their pre-surgical blood panel prior to their surgery.
Annually, pets should be examined, which allows LVH to provide care that will keep them healthy and happy for their entire lives. In order for us to dispense any medications, including ongoing medications and flea/parasite prevention, your pet will require an exam within 12 months.
