Back to School Wellness Care From Our Hayward Veterinarian
It’s nearing the end of summer and students in Hayward are heading back to school. Which brings up the question– when was the last time you did your homework on your pet’s wellness care? At Caring Pet Hospital, our dedicated Hayward veterinarian offers wellness care, vaccinations/immunizations, and a variety of other veterinary services for your beloved pet’s health and wellness. One of the most common reasons people bring their pets into our office is for an annual checkup, also known as a wellness exam.
Regular Pet Exams with Our Veterinarian in Hayward
Regular pet exams are highly recommended and are one of the simplest steps you can take to protect your pet’s health. Not only do wellness exams help us have a record of your pet’s weight and overall health, but they’re also effective in spotting early warning signs of certain illnesses and diseases. And with early detection, our veterinarian in Hayward can be more proactive and successful in treatment.
Furthermore, a wellness exam also presents a great opportunity for you as a pet owners to bring up any concerns you may have about your pet’s health or ask any questions to your vet.
Is an Annual Checkup Right for Your Pet?
In most cases, an annual checkup is recommended for pets. However, depending on your pet’s age and medical history, it may sometimes be recommended to bring your pet in for two check-ups a year. This is most common in very young pets (such as puppies and kittens) to make sure development is going as expected, along with senior pets to keep a closer eye on their health.
During a wellness exam, we’ll take the time to evaluate your pet’s overall health and weight. We’ll also listen to its heart beat and lungs to make sure things are normal. We will also recommend and perform any additional testing that may be required.
