Wellness Exams

Pet wellness exams play a key role in maintaining your pet’s health and overall well-being. Our Marysville, WA veterinarians can keep track of your pet’s overall health, lifestyle, and habits through routine pet exams to safeguard it against sickness and disease. At Cascade Veterinary Center, we offer comprehensive wellness exams for dogs, cats, kittens, and puppies. After bringing your new animal home, your first step should be to schedule a wellness exam.

Importance of Pet Wellness Exams

Wellness exams serve two essential purposes in a pet’s life. First, they help prevent health issues by alerting our Marysville vets to poor lifestyle habits that can lead to a decline in your pet’s health. These habits could include overeating or eating unhealthy foods, lack of exercise, poor hygiene, or lack of quality medical care. Changing poor lifestyle habits can improve your pet’s overall health and keep health problems like diabetes, obesity, ear infections, kidney problems, etc., at bay.  

Second, wellness exams help our vets detect signs of health issues in their early stages. This enables your pet to get immediate treatment before the problem becomes more severe. Early detection and treatment of health problems can spare your pet from pain and suffering and help it recover quicker. Routine wellness exams can also save you the time and expense of having to pay for lengthy treatments later down the line.

What to Expect from a Wellness Exam

Wellness exams are, basically, a nose-to-tail inspection of your pet. Before starting the exam, your Marysville, WA vet will review its medical history, weigh and measure your pet, and take its vital signs. This information will be documented in your pet’s medical records for future use. Then our vets will inspect your pet’s body – eyes, ears, nose, mouth, skin, and fur - for irregularities that could signal a hidden medical issue. We’ll listen to your pet’s lungs and heart and check its joints for signs of arthritis. Our veterinarians may order bloodwork or conduct urine and fecal tests to check the health of your pet’s internal organs.  

If you have any questions about your pet’s health or have noticed unusual symptoms in your pet, you can discuss these issues with your vet during a wellness exam. Depending on the results of your pet’s exam, we may recommend changes in your pet’s diet or lifestyle to improve its health. We can also update your pet’s vaccination schedule and administer any necessary booster shots during a routine wellness exam.
