Pet Wellness Exams

Like people, pets require ongoing care to ensure they live long lives, free of pain or discomfort. At Animal Health Care Center in Madison, AL, we offer routine wellness care that can keep your furry friend healthy and happy at every stage of its life. Our Madison veterinarians can catch signs of pet illnesses early on through annual wellness exams to avoid delays in treatment. Prompt treatment will expedite your pet’s recovery and put him back on the road to good health.  

Pet Wellness Exams

What to Expect from a Pet Wellness Exam

During a wellness exam, we will provide a comprehensive checkup from our veterinarians to assess your pet’s current health. We’ll check your pet’s eyes, nose, ears, mouth, teeth, and coat for outward signs of sickness or disease. Our vets will also listen to your pet’s heart and lungs to detect signs of cardiac or respiratory issues and check for any joint disfunction. If your pet has been showing signs of health issues, now would be a good time to discuss its symptoms or unusual behavior with our vets so we can investigate further.

Pet diagnostics may consist of lab work, like blood testing or fecal and urine tests, or imaging tests, like x-rays or pet ultrasound, to diagnose any underlying health issues in your pet. Through diagnostic testing, our Madison vets are able to uncover hidden medical issues in your animal, even if he or she is not showing any current symptoms. This enables your pet to get the treatment he or she needs for a quicker recovery.

If your pet is due for vaccinations, we’ll update his or her core and non-core vaccinations during the wellness visit. Vaccinations provide essential disease prevention protection for your pet. We’ll also check your pet for parasites and offer medication to keep him or her parasite-free year-round.

Senior Pet Care

Senior pets are more susceptible to serious health issues like diabetes, cancer, thyroid problems, kidney problems, and other medical conditions. As such, they often require more extensive care to stay in good health. We recommend bi-annual checkups for senior pets so we can stay on top of their health.

Your senior pet will also need more extensive lab work and blood testing to evaluate the health and function of its systems and internal organs. At this stage of your pet’s life, it’s imperative that medical issues are diagnosed and treated as early as possible before they compromise your pet’s health. Early diagnosis and treatment can help extend your furry friend’s life.
