As with human health care, yearly exams are vital to assure your pets continued health. Dogs and cats age much quicker than we humans and these exams can allow us to detect problems early.
Pet Check-Ups in Big Spring, TX
We want to be your partner in your pet’s care. Like any relationship, communication is important, and we hope you find value in your pet’s annual exams and check-ups. Bringing your pet to Highland Animal Hospital for physical examinations is crucial to his or her health. We offer thorough physical examinations so that we can detect any potential problems before they become major problems. Many pet health problems can be avoided through regular physical exams, which is why we recommend that your pet has at least two examinations with our staff per year. While physical exams are critical to animal health, you can do your part too by being a vigilant pet owner. If you notice any irregularities with your pet, take detailed notes and bring him or her to Highland Animal Hospital for an examination.
What exactly does a physical exam include? Some things you can’t see, feel, touch, or hear without special tests and equipment, but many times you can gain a lot of information about your pet through simple observation. In a physical exam, your veterinarian looks for anything abnormal. What is considered normal is a combination of what is normal for the breed and what is normal for your specific unique pet. Every pet is a little bit different, just like every human is different. Once the veterinarian does the basic physical exam, any areas of concern will be given more attention.
