Pet Wellness Exams from Your Jacksonville Vet

Here at our Jacksonville vet clinic, the Animal Hospital of Onslow County, we believe that regular wellness exams can lay a foundation of good health to last for your pet's entire life. Regular wellness exams for pets allow our veterinarians to detect and diagnose disease in its early stages, when it is easiest to treat. Wellness exams also allow our vets to provide the preventative care your pet needs to avoid may contagious diseases and parasites and stay healthy.

Regular Visits to Our Jacksonville Veterinarian Can Keep Your Pet Healthy

Just as you need regular dental exams and doctor's checkups to protect your good health, your pet needs regular preventive care, too. When you bring your pet to our Jacksonville veterinarian for a wellness exam, he or she will examine your pet for signs of:

  • Gum disease, tooth decay, and other dental health issues
  • Skin diseases
  • Ear and eye infections
  • Weight problems
  • Problems with the heart and other vital organs
  • Joint pain 
  • Parasitic infestation
  • Cataracts
  • Dry eye
  • Tumors or other growths

With modern advances in veterinary medicine, many of the conditions that would have once significantly shortened a pet's life can now be successfully treated, allowing your pet to enjoy many more healthy, happy years with you. However, in order for treatment to be successful, it is still often necessary to diagnose a disease when it is in its earliest stages. Protecting your pet's health can also be very important to your own health, since some pet diseases are contagious to humans, too. 

You should take the opportunity to have our vets administer any needed vaccinations during your pet's wellness exam. Your pet may need booster shots against rabies and other animal diseases, including feline calicivirus, distemper, panleukopenia, and parvovirus. Ask our vets about protecting your pet from infestation by fleas, ticks, intestinal worms, heart worms, and other parasites. If you have any other questions about your pet's health or needs, you can ask for advice during your pet's wellness exam.

Blood work and other diagnostic procedures may need to form a part of your pet's regular wellness visits, depending on his lifestyle, age, and breed, and whether or not the vet finds anything of concern during his physical examination. Some of the procedures your pet might need as part of his wellness exam can include:

  • A complete blood panel and chemistry panel
  • Heartworm screening
  • Urinalysis
  • Thyroid screening
  • FIV/FELV screening
  • X-rays
  • Cytology
  • Fecal exam
  • Blood pressure reading
  • Glaucoma test

Your pet may need a few of these diagnostic procedures, or many, depending on his age, breed, lifestyle, and condition. Right now, Animal Hospital of Onslow County is offering a 30 percent discount on wellness exams, with blood work included. If you have been putting off bringing your pet in for a wellness exam, now is the time to stop procrastinating and take advantage of this special offer. Your pet's health is worth it.
