Annual exams are essential to maintain your pet’s overall wellbeing to ensure a long and healthy life! During an annual exam a thorough, physical exam is performed including the evaluation of past and present issues. Because animals age much faster than humans, their health can change rapidly, as well. Through routine wellness exams, any changes within an animal’s health and wellness may be detected before clinical signs are exhibited. We will discuss vaccinations, testing, nutritional recommendations, and fitness goals for the upcoming year. This is also the time for pet owners to ask questions and express any concerns about their pet’s health.
Our staff at CG&S is also available for any issues your pet may be having through illness, as well. From limping to vomiting, our veterinarians will guide you through the diagnostic process, recommending the tests that will give you the information needed to get your pet back to feeling great!
In addition to wellness examinations, there are a variety of preventative options for your pet, including routine vaccinations and testing for common intestinal and blood parasites. Our goal at CG&S is to educate pet owners about the preventative vaccine options and create a health plan for each individual animal. Annual vaccinations are a proven method of preventing disease, and our veterinarians can help you decide what diseases your pet may be exposed to.
Another important aspect of pet wellness is the use of monthly preventatives for external parasites such as fleas and ticks, as well as internal parasites such as heartworms and intestinal parasites. These products can prevent costly and dangerous illness if animals are untreated. See our “Products” section for details!
