Pet Wellness Exams in Nazareth
Routine Care & Checkups for Patients in the Lehigh Valley
Just like humans, pets need annual physicals and regularly scheduled wellness exams to ensure that they are in good health and that any minor issues are caught and addressed early on. This is especially true as cats and dogs age, but all pets can benefit from routine checkups and regular preventative care and vaccinations.
At Nazareth Veterinary Center, we offer comprehensive pet wellness exams in Nazareth, PA at our spacious, state-of-the-art veterinary facility. Our veterinarians and staff members are committed to providing the highest level of treatment, quality, and care, working to keep your pet in the best possible health at any age.
What Does a Pet Wellness Exam Include?
A wellness exam is just that—a thorough assessment of your pet’s current health and wellness. Our veterinarians take into account several factors, such as the age of your pet and his or her species and breed, when conducting your pet’s wellness exam. We may also ask if you have noticed any recent issues, such as unexplained weight loss or fatigue, as well as answer any questions you may have.
Generally speaking, our pet wellness exams may involve:
- A complete physical analysis
- Parasite screenings
- Stool sample testing
While all of these tests are important for obtaining an overall picture of your pet’s health, we especially stress the importance of routine bloodwork. This is one of the primary—and most effective—way to screen for potential health issues and diseases and, often, allows for critical early detection and treatment.
The Importance of Yearly Wellness Exams
There are countless reasons to schedule regular wellness exams for your pet. Perhaps most importantly, these exams allow our veterinarians to detect certain conditions, like heartworm disease or diabetes, early on. This, in turn, lets us begin treatment as soon as possible, greatly improving your pet’s health, comfort, and overall well-being.
At Nazareth Veterinary Center, we are dedicated to providing high-quality veterinary services for clients throughout the Lehigh Valley. Our Nazareth pet wellness exams are comprehensive and affordable—be sure to ask about our current specials for new clients, including $10 your pet’s first exam!
