Your pet’s complete, ongoing health is our highest priority here at Mills Creek Animal Hospital. From their very first visit and for every year thereafter, our aim is to establish a health baseline and provide your pet with the routine care they need to maintain their wellness. Dogs and cats age about 5-6 years for one human year, which means health changes can happen quickly, too. With annual cat and dog exams, blood and fecal testing, and vaccinations, we can keep up with these changes and minimize or even prevent a variety of ailments in our patients.

Making Cat and Dog Exams Less Stressful with Fear Free Care

Many pet parents forego a trip to the vet because it puts a lot of stress on their dogs and cats. However, missing out on a pet’s annual checkup can result in an underlying health problem going unnoticed. Because our animal hospital provides Fear Free care, you can rest assured that we will do everything we can to help your pet relax and enjoy their visit. We use a variety of approved techniques to meet our patients on their terms and reduce any sources of stress that might exist.

What to Expect During a Typical Pet Exam

A routine cat or dog exam involves several steps which all work together to protect your pet from illness and keep them healthy for as long as possible. These include:

  • A thorough physical exam and assessment of the heart, lungs, weight, and body temperature
  • Discussing and addressing any health or behavior problems you have observed
  • Any vaccine boosters your pet needs
  • Blood and fecal testing
  • Parasite prevention
  • Nutritional recommendations (your pet’s diet will change as they grow)
  • All the time you need to ask questions and get the information you need to provide the best care for your pet

We highly recommend writing down any questions and concerns you have about your pet and bringing them to their annual appointment. This way, you won’t forget anything and we’ll have the opportunity to address every issue promptly.
