Your pet is examined from head to toe in order to catch early

Why does my pet need and exam if it acts
fine?

In order to stay healthy and function properly today it is
recommended that . . .

  • Your car receive an oil change, have its fluid levels
    checked, check and change fuel and air filters, check
    lights, and have tires rotated every 3000 miles or 3
    months.  This is an average cost of $30 or $40.
  • Your eyes receive a complete exam, including dilation of
    the pupils once a year to check for vision, disease to the
    retina, glaucoma, cataract development and other
    conditions that can be corrected if caught early.  This
    can range from $65 to $120.
  • Your teeth receive a complete dental exam, x-rays and
    cleaning including polishing every year for $80-$150
  • And Your body receive a complete physical exam which
    may also include a pap smear, prostate exam, or
    mammogram every year for $30-$35 copay with
    insurance.

It is just as vitally important that your pet receive this same type
of routine maintenance and care.  Pets age an average of 7
years for each year that you own them.  TWICE A YEAR Exams
are recommended to keep your pet healthy and to catch and
correct problems early.  That is 1 exam for every 3.5 years that
your pet ages.  For less then the price of an oil change or
copay on a doctor's visit your pet will have his or her Eyes,
Ears, Teeth, Mouth, Lips, Nose, Heart, Lungs, Lymph Nodes,
Trachea, Abdomen (including palpation of intestine, liver and
kidneys), Prostate/Mammary glands, Joints, and Skin checked!
