Fremont Veterinary Routine Health and Wellness Exams
As veterinary professionals, TriCity Veterinary Hospital ,your local Fremont, CA vet clinic, understands that the best means to keep your pet healthy as well as to limit the lifetime cost of care is through preventative veterinary medical care. The cornerstone of any preventative pet care and wellness program is regular wellness exams.
Just as any other member of your family sees a physician for routine physicals, your pet needs to see his or her veterinarian in order to check for underlying signs of ill-health. As a part of our Fremont vet wellness services, these routine exams also make for a great opportunity for you to ask any health-related questions you may have or raise concerns about the health of your pet. Your veterinarian will also use this time to discuss age-related health issues with you as well as provide any new information on the care of your specific type and breed of pet.
In all, routine pet wellness exams are an important step for discovering any health issues at an early and easily treatable stage as well as taking steps to prevent the onset of illnesses.
During your pet’s wellness exam at our Fremont CA vet clinic, your veterinarian will:
Examine your pet’s lungs – There are a number of health issues that can be detected by listening to your pet’s lungs. These include respiratory infections, obstructive diseases and other pulmonary issues.
Check your pet’s heart – Your veterinarian can tell a lot about the health of your pet’s heart by listening for murmurs and other irregular heart beat patterns through a stethoscope. Identifying an irregular beat or indications of obstruction can lead to early diagnose and treatment.
Take a look at the teeth and oral cavity – Proper oral health is important for maintaining the overall systemic health of your pet because these infections can enter the blood stream and infect other areas of the body. Dental disease is also one of the most common health issues in pets as well as one of the most preventable.
Look at your pet’s eyes – Ocular conditions such as glaucoma are relatively common in older pets and, as with other vision-related issues, can be well treated when discovered early.
Examine the ears – Infections, ear mites, low-grade allergies and other related health issues are relatively common in companion animals. It is relatively easy for your veterinarian to take a look inside the ears to see if there are any indications of ear disease.
Examine the lymph nodes, abdomen and skin – Your veterinarian will look for any unusual bumps or swellings as well as skin discolorations, lesions, and hair loss, which can indicate the presence of dermatological conditions or even systemic illness such as metabolic diseases.
Palpate joints and muscles – Arthritis and other orthopedic issues are relatively common in companion animals, especially those older than about six years of age. However, early detection and treatment can help relieve pain and offer your pet many more active years.
Lab testing – While your veterinarian’s four senses are good at helping detect a number of health issues, laboratory testing allows us to evaluate the function of internal organs, blood, and other systems. These tests are critical for uncovering underlying disease processes that otherwise would remain unnoticed until they cause serious symptoms in your pet.
Our appointment book is computerized which allows us to efficiently make appointments for you and your pet. Our receptionists and team will attempt to accommodate all requests to the best of our ability. Emergencies are accepted anytime our clinic is open. If you feel you have an emergency with your pet, please call us or come to the hospital immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a staff member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We have a veterinarian and personnel on duty 6 days a week who are trained and equipped to handle any urgent care your pet has. Usually an emergency team consists of at least one veterinarian and several technicians working together to save a pet's life. Emergencies can be things such a snail bait poisoning, hit by car, and chocolate ingestion. If you ever feel that your pet needs emergency treatment do not hesitate to call or come in immediately. If possible it is best to call before coming in so that a team member can advise you on your particular emergency.
We are also available for urgent care when the condition is not life-threatening, but you feel your pet needs to be seen before you are able to get an appointment. Our veterinarians will work to "squeeze" you in between scheduled appointments. When you arrive, our receptionists will be able to give you an estimate on how long you may have to wait in order to be seen.
