Your pet's annual vet check-up will include a total physical exam from nose to tail; evaluating any problem areas which may require treatment or further diagnostic work. It's a good idea to keep an accurate medical diary not only of the procedures and vaccinations your pet receives at the vet, but also of notes on things like your pet's elimination habits and any physical changes or unusual occurrences. Keep track of small shifts in your pet's behavior, including urinary marking habits and mood swings, along with diet and routine modifications. Take this notebook when you visit the vet. These notes may assist in diagnosing any potential problems and creating a well-rounded treatment plan if necessary.
Our doctors may refer you to a specialist (veterinarians who have completed advanced studies in specialties such as internal medicine, surgery, and emergency care) if your pet must undergo a procedure that requires more precise knowledge and experience or if they are in need of specialized diagnostics.
