Portland Pet Exams
Happy, Healthy Pets with Pacific Veterinary Clinic
We take your pet’s health and happiness very seriously at Pacific Veterinary Hospital. Our Portland veterinary team makes sure that all of your pet’s needs are met with care and compassion. With regular visits to our clinic, your pet’s health and longevity can be dramatically improved. We know your pets are an important part of your family and deserve the best care that we can provide.
Wellness exams at Pacific Veterinary Hospital are part of our preventative care approach to your pet’s health. Most pets should come visit us every six months, though some pets might require more frequent visits. Regular exams help us get to know your pet and their health so that we can spot changes in your pet’s wellbeing before they become worrying issues.
Don’t procrastinate your pet’s next vet visit! Call (503) 905-9303 to schedule an appointment with our Portland veterinary team today!
What is a Wellness Exam?
Much like annual physicals for humans, wellness exams for your pets are a comprehensive look at your pet’s overall health. Our Portland veterinary team examines your pet from nose to tail during every wellness exam. We will also likely take samples for laboratory work as a way of getting a closer look at the health of the entire system of your pet. We’ll also ask you questions, since we know you know your pet best.
Topics we’ll cover during the exam:
- Activity level
- Behavior and habits
- Bowel movements
- Medical history
- Preexisting conditions
We’ll ask a variety of questions about the topics above, as well as other follow up questions to get a better picture of your pet’s health. You see your pet every day, so if you notice that something is different about your pet lately, please tell us! No detail is too minor for us to know.
Based on the information you tell us, plus our findings of our physical exam and the laboratory results, our Portland veterinary team will recommend a course of care that will best benefit your pet’s health and quality of life. We want to be there for your pet at every stage of their life, giving them thorough, quality care to help them stay happy and healthy for years to come.
Resources for You
Not only are we here for your pets, but Pacific Veterinary Hospital is here for you too. We do our best to equip you with the know-how to give your pets the best quality of life at home. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns during your pet’s wellness exam, our Portland veterinary team will listen carefully before providing any answers or recommendations. We’ll take the time to explain your pet’s lab results or procedures that we recommend your pet undertake. By empowering you with thorough knowledge of your pet’s health, we enable you to take the very best care of your pet.
