What You Can Expect in a Wellness Exam
At Animal Care Clinic, we want to ensure your pet receives the highest quality of care. Once our staff has checked in with you after mandatory forms are filled out, Dr. Westerhof or Dr. Case will provides a lengthy list of wellness service recommendations that would benefit your pet in the event of any illness or emergency. He'll check your pet's heartbeat, inside their ears and mouth, the condition of their teeth, the length of their paw nails, any possible joint problems or mobility issues, their hindquarters and any abnormalities of the tail.
The consultation also includes dietary guidelines and questions regarding weight changes, food restrictions, or stools that appear unusual. He'll discuss the proper recommendations for all of these wellness care services, suggest activities to maintain the right weight for your type of animal, and thoroughly go over their medical history. We look for behavioral changes that might signal an underlying issue or symptom needing immediate attention.
If you notice any signs of weakness, aggression, or food avoidance, our comprehensive exam will detect these unusual stances within your pet and we'll take action. Your pet's health care needs are our priority, and with an annual wellness consultation, we're better able to understand the status of their overall well-being.
What about Twice per Year Exams?
There's a host of reasons to come and see us only twice per year. Unless your animal is experiencing a major medical emergency or in need of spay/neuter treatment, most of our vaccinations are designated as administered in 3-year cycles. This allows your pet to reap the benefits of the vaccine that's warding off illness for a longer duration, and when it's time to schedule your appointment, we'll conduct an extensive wellness exam from tooth to tail.
Our Rock Island veterinarian is available to answer any questions you may have regarding the wellness services and subsequent exam we offer. Call us at 309-788-2232 to schedule your visit. We look forward to seeing you!
