Pet Wellness Exams in Miami, FL

help detect serious medical conditions

Pets age at a faster rate than humans, which means that their health can deteriorate quickly as well.

Annual pet wellness exams are important in catching and treating any serious medical conditions before they become too advanced. By scheduling regular exams, you have the opportunity to discuss your pet’s overall health and well-being with your veterinarian, and to ask any questions you may have about their current state.

Before bringing your pet in for their wellness exam, take note of any significant changes in their behavior, including vomiting, diarrhea, coughing, weight gain or loss, increased thirst, or aggression. If you have noticed any changes in your pet's behavior or health since their last check-up, be sure to inform the veterinarian during the exam.

Puppy And Kitten Exams

Puppies and kittens are vulnerable to diseases and parasitic infections due to their underdeveloped immune systems. During their wellness exams, we record their vital signs and perform laboratory tests to establish a baseline for future visits. A comprehensive head-to-tail examination is conducted, checking vital organs and joints for any discomfort or limitations in mobility. If you have a new pet, a wellness exam is strongly recommended to identify any pre-existing conditions and begin treatment as soon as possible.

Adult Pet Exams

During adult pet exams, our veterinarians conduct a thorough physical examination of your pet's body, assessing vital organs, joint function, and vital statistics. In case of any abnormalities, further diagnostic tests such as lab work or X-rays may be recommended. Additionally, we may discuss your pet's diet and nutrition, as a well-balanced diet is essential for maintaining good health. As a pet owner, you are encouraged to consult with our veterinarian about your pet's current diet and eating habits and explore the possibility of healthier options.

Senior Pet Exams

As pets grow older, they are more prone to age-related illnesses, which necessitates more care than younger pets. For this reason, it is recommended that senior pets receive a wellness exam twice annually, and undergo full lab work once a year. During these exams, our veterinarians record your pet’s vital statistics and perform a thorough head-to-tail examination of their internal organs and joints to check for any abnormalities or pain.
