Routine Health Checkups for Cats & Dogs of All Sizes

Whether your pet has fur, feathers or scales, regular wellness exams are critical to helping them maintain good long-term physical health.

When combined with regular vaccinations, preventive care and proper nutrition, bringing your pet in for routine checkups allows your veterinarian to prevent health issues from developing or catch them early, when they are most treatable.

Regular checkups also provide you an opportunity to discuss concerns or ask questions regarding your dog or cat's well-being. This proactive approach can save you both time and money by addressing potential health issues before they become more serious.

At your pet's wellness exam, your veterinarian can also provide advice on topics such as diet, exercise, and behaviour to ensure that they are living their happiest and healthiest life.

What to Expect During an Exam

During a routine wellness exam at Animals First Clinic, your veterinarian will give your companion a thorough physical checkup to get a comprehensive picture of their overall health.

Your veterinarian will also check whether your dog, cat or exotic pet is due for any routine vaccinations or parasite prevention.

Once your pet's examination has been completed, your veterinarian will take time to discuss any concerns they may have about your pet's overall health and discuss their nutritional requirements.

Routine checkups at our Grande Prairie veterinary clinic typically include an examination of each of the following elements of your pet's health:

Checkups for Puppies, Kittens & Young Exotic Pets

To help get your new companion off to a healthy start, proper medical attention is essential during the first few weeks of their life. Our team will perform a comprehensive physical examination of your new companion and provide immunizations and deworming medication as needed. We will also test for intestinal parasites and provide treatment if required.

Once your puppy, kitten, or exotic pet's first checkup is complete, you will need to bring them in periodically for their required booster shots

Checkups for Senior Pets

As pets enter their senior years, veterinary checkups play an increasingly important role in ensuring their continuing good health. During your senior pet's wellness exam, your veterinarian will be particularly watchful for signs of potential age-related conditions, such as diabetes, arthritis, or decreased vision.

Additional diagnostic testing may be recommended for aging pets to provide your veterinarian with a more detailed diagnosis of your senior pet's condition and provide a treatment plan.
