Newtown Pet Wellness Exams
Schedule a Routine Exam for Your Pet Today
As the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure – and regular wellness exams are the cornerstone of preventive healthcare for your pet. At Sycamore Veterinary Hospital, we recommend annual wellness exams for your pet, though more frequent exams are encouraged for senior pets.
During an exam, our veterinarians:
- Check your pet’s eyes and ears
- Examine your pet’s teeth and oral cavity
- Listen to the heart and lungs
- Look for swelling or unusual lumps
- Check the joints and muscles for signs of arthritis
Exams give us a complete picture of your pet’s overall health and are useful in detecting potential health problems before they become more serious. During a wellness exam in Newtown, we may also perform routine blood and urine tests as well as tests for internal or external parasites.
Exams are also a good time to discuss any behavior problems, health concerns, or other issues with our Newtown veterinarians. We believe in working closely and communicating frequently with you to develop a comprehensive health plan for your beloved pet.
