Cedarview Animal Hospital, Barrhaven, Ottawa - physical examinations

By: Cedarview Animal Hospital  09-12-2011

Wellness exams are designed to help detect, treat and, ideally, prevent health problems before they pose a risk to your pet. As part of the exam, you’ll be asked a variety of questions about your pet’s behaviour, lifestyle, travel history and other factors. This information can then be used to develop an individualized health care program that’s right for your pet.

Here is a list of some of the most important health screenings for cats and dogs. Additional tests might be recommended, depending on your pet’s health history and other factors.
