Pet Exams in Oklahoma CityKeeping Pets Well in Oklahoma City and Beyond

There’s much more to having an animal companion than just providing them with food and shelter. They need to see their veterinarian at least once a year to help maintain their good health and allow them many more years to spend with you. Here at Awesome Care Veterinary Hospital in Oklahoma City, we can’t stress the importance of pet wellness care enough. We’re devoted to all of our four-legged patients, and we want to see them thrive for many years to come.

Pet-Exams-Oklahoma-CityWhat You Need to Know About Pet Wellness Exams

Pet exams are the foundation of routine veterinary care. They’re the point at which we establish a baseline of health and address all of your concerns and questions. The exam typically begins with a weight, temperature check, and heart auscultation, followed by a complete, nose-to-tail physical examination of the ears, eyes, mouth,  skin, limbs, abdomen and back. Your veterinarian will discuss what they’ve observed, and point out any abnormalities that require attention. Blood, fecal, and/or urine testing may be recommended at this time, and if your pet is in good shape, we’ll administer the appropriate vaccinations and preventative medications.

Puppy and Kitten Care

Treatment for puppies and kittens usually begins when they’re about 6-8 weeks old. Many puppies and kittens are born with internal parasites such as hookworms and roundworms, so deworming should be anticipated at their initial visit. Our veterinarian will conduct a thorough examination of your pet, and may choose to begin their vaccine boosters (depending on their health). During these visits, we’ll also talk to you about diet, exercise, training (for puppies), microchipping, and spaying/neutering.
