Overview

The American Animal Hospital Association recommends that your pet have a wellness exam at least once every year. Depending on your pet’s species, Dr. Ayersman may recommend disease screenings, preventative medications, or possibly vaccines.

Why are wellness exams important?

Wellness exams give us a chance to evaluate the overall health of your pet while also giving us a baseline for their own unique bodies and tendencies. They also allow us to detect potential problems before they become serious, and even make your pet more familiar with our veterinary hospital, making future visits easier on them and you.

When should my pet visit the vet?

We believe in preventative medicine as the best approach to keeping our patients healthy. This includes annual wellness examinations, husbandry evaluation, and dietary management. Dr. Ayersman will work with you, discuss the options available, and help you make the best possible health decisions for your pet.

How do wellness exams work?

During a wellness exam, our veterinary team will start out by taking a detailed history of your pet's environment and diet. Dr. Ayersman will perform a species-specific diet and husbandry evaluation, examine your pet, and may also recommend diagnostic tests. Wellness exams give us a baseline of how your pet is when they are healthy and enable us to provide better care in the event of illness or emergency. Early detection and correction of medical problems will help to ensure that your pet will live a healthy and active life.
