Pet Consultation & Examination
Annual physical examinations are crucial to the health and well-being of our pets.
This is particularly true given that cats and dogs age at a rate much faster than we do – just one year could be the equivalent of 5 to 8 years in your pet!
It is for this reason that we have structured 30 minute appointments which gives the veterinarian the opportunity to thoroughly examine your pet, from head to toe! We never want you to feel that a consultation is rushed, which is why we scheduled adequate time to answer all of your questions, including anything from nutrition to behaviour. We know you have a busy life schedule, and are therefore dedicated to minimizing wait times, and doing everything in our power to stay on time.
Just like us, a physical examination includes a thorough auscultation of the chest with a stethoscope, listening to the heart of lungs. A detailed look on the surface and interior of the eye is performed to detect abnormalities such as ulcers or glaucoma. An otoscope is used to examine the ear canal for signs of infection, redness or swelling. Finally, a detailed inspection of the entire body, from bones, to lymph nodes, to the abdomen is performed. Sometimes, routine blood tests may be recommended as a part of our early detection program. Early detection of illness and disease is paramount to preventing serious health issues requiring expensive hospitalization, and more importantly will prolong the time we have we our beloved pets.
As you would have noticed, our pets age significantly faster than we humans, and one year of our life, can be the equivalent of about 8 years for our pets. Therefore it is important for the health and well being of our canines to get an annual physical examination done by your Brampton vet.
Our 30-minute appointments have been specifically structured keeping in mind, the lifecycle of pets. These appointments provide our veterinarian the opportunity to examine your pet comprehensively. We focus on ensuring that the pet diagnosis is never rushed and adequate time is always available to provide answers to any questions you may have. We are conscious that you, as a pet owner, have a busy life schedule and therefore always strive to minimize your wait time and stick to your pet care appointment. Our veterinary services also include finding answers to all your questions ranging from behaviour to nutrition and everything else in between.
Just like us, a physical examination includes a thorough auscultation of the chest with a stethoscope, listening to the heart of lungs. The eyes of your pet also get a detailed examination to detect potential abnormalities like glaucoma or ulcers. Similarly, the ear canal of your pet is also examined for signs of redness, infection or swelling. The final step of the annual physical examination involves a detailed inspection of the whole body. Routine blood tests may also be recommended at times as part of an early detection program. Early detection is significantly helpful in preventing serious health concerns and potentially expensive hospitalization. More importantly, the annual physical examination of your pet also helps in adding to his/her life span.
