The annual pet exam is an important part of your pet’s care because it allows the vet to get to know the animal in an ongoing, consistent way. At Acres Mill Veterinary Clinic in Canton, GA, we encourage annual pet exams to provide superior care for all our patients.
Because you see your pet every day, you may not notice the subtle changes in weight, coat condition or blood chemistry that indicates the onset of a health problem. During the annual exam, your vet in Canton, GA can check for these indicators and take action when problems are in the early stages.
During the annual pet exam, your pet will be weighed and visually examined to determine if he is the proper weight for his breed and bone structure. The vet will look into the animal’s ears, eyes and mouth, inspect the coat and will palpate for any growths or abnormalities in the joints and bones. Your veterinarian will also ask questions about the kind of food your pet eats, amounts of exercise and behavioral habits.
In the early years, the annual exam can catch problems with development that can be resolved so your puppy or kitten can grow healthy and strong. During the adult years, the annual exam can ensure that minor skin, ear or teeth problems are managed appropriately. In later years, the annual exam ensures that any disease conditions are properly treated so your pet can have a healthy and comfortable old age.
Dr. Good, Dr. Stewart, and Dr. Alleyne combine their extensive training and experience to provide the highest quality care for their patients in Canton OH and surrounding communities. We offer a range of services, including diagnostics, vaccinations, and surgery.
