Wellness Exams

ATX Animal Clinic recommends a regular, annual wellness exam for your pet, which can greatly help in detecting any potential health problems that your pet may have (or show signs of developing) in its early stages.

Required annually for your cat or dog, this is a complete physical examination that includes diagnostic testing such as urinalysis, blood work, and fecal tests for parasites, and much more. These exams are invaluable for helping detect diseases, and are often scheduled when your pets are in need for regular vaccinations.

As part of your pet’s annual pet wellness exam, ATX Animal Clinic will perform the following:

  • Examine your pet's teeth, throat, and oral cavity, their vision and eyes, and their ears for infection, ear mites, allergic reactions and other possible health issues
  • Do full check of your pet’s respiratory system
  • Assess your pet's heart and evaluate cardiac function
  • A full test of their reflexes
  • Palpate their lymph nodes and abdomen
  • A full skin inspection, including palpating for unusual growth developments, as well as checking their joints and muscles for arthritis and other orthopedic conditions
  • Evaluate the function of their internal organs and other systems
  • Assess changes in your pet’s body weight, appetite, urination and bowel habits
  • Discuss your pet’s activity level, monitor their blood count and check for early signs of Lyme or Heartworm disease
  • Evaluate any changes in your pet’s health, since their last wellness visit
  • Review preventive techniques with you, and how to administer at-home medication, if needed
