Annual Physical Pet Exams – What to Expect at The Vet’s Office Do you think it is appropriate to allot a specific time to see a veterinarian for a checkup? Are you aware of what will happen upon your visit? It is vital that you know a thing or two on what will happen during your trip at the vet’s office. It helps you determine whether your pet is not feeling well or they are healthy. The following are the usual things that veterinarians do during annual physical exam for pets: Taking your Pet’s Temperature The first thing that most vets do is obtain the temperature of your pets. The typical range for cats or dog’s normal temperature would fall somewhere between 100 to 102.5 degree Fahrenheit. If temperature of your pet is high then vets would often examine them further because even if it seems physically fit, there must be a reason why they have an unusual temperature.

Skin and coat examination is also necessary, this will allow vets to know if there is a proper care given to the pets and that they did not accumulate parasitic organisms like fleas and ticks. If the coat or skin is dry and fur keeps falling off then this also helps vets identify possible causes of the latter. Veterinarians would usually recommend a meat-based diet rather than a grain-based diet if the skin of your pets is seemingly not in good condition. After some time, the skin of your pet will surely look better and much healthier. Checking for Possible Ear Problems If there are wounds on the ears or on the skin then that is not a healthy sign, vets would consider running more tests. If the ears are dry and smelly then you must have them check immediately. Ear infection and allergy can be easily detected with those things mentioned earlier. The ear canal is where the infection would usually start. This is where regular checkup come in handy since vets will be able to detect the onset of ear infection and will be able to prevent it from getting worse more so this saves you the possibility of spending significant amount of money for your pet’s medication. Reputable vets would often advice pet owners some ways they can keep the ears of their pets clean more so prescribe necessary medications if there is a need to do so. Examination for the Eyes Another examination that vets usually do is examine the internal structure of your pets’ eyes. Although pets don’t usually experience eye problems still becoming cautious and proactive is necessary. If your pets are fond of playing on grassy lands chances are they will experience eye irritations or if pollen and dust get into their eyes, other than eye irritations there are no other eye problems you can expect.
