Your pet's annual “check up” will include a comprehensive physical examination, general health assessment, relevant diagnostic testing, and applicable vaccinations. Your veterinarian will address any questions or concerns you have about your pet. If necessary, blood tests, parasite screening, urinalysis, fecal testing, or other relevant diagnostics may be recommended. In many cases, a wellness examination can help detect the early stages of disease and finding health issues early can help make treatment easier and more effective. Veterinarians help you decide what is best for your pet when it comes to parasite prevention, dietary needs and changes, concerns about aging, and the issues that affect dogs and cats at all life stages.
It is a good idea to keep an accurate medical diary of the procedures and vaccinations your pet receives at the vet, as well as notes on things like your pet's elimination habits and any physical changes or unusual occurrences. Keeping track of small shifts in your pet's behavior, including urinary marking habits and mood swings, along with diet and routine modifications can be effective in helping track long-term changes with your pet's health. These seemingly unrelated occurrences may help explain results of your pet's medical tests. Take this notebook when you visit your veterinarian.
The veterinarians at Cherokee Hills may refer you to a specialist, which is a veterinarian who has completed advanced studies in a specialty such as internal medicine, surgery, specialized dentistry, or emergency care if your pet must undergo a procedure that requires more precise knowledge, experience, or overnight hospitalization. Your pet's health is important to us and we want to help you make the best health decisions possible.
