To keep your pet’s health great, going to see a veterinarian regularly is important. We can provide the regular essential checkups to make sure that the health of your four-legged friend is good, and that they haven’t contracted any sort of disease that might need some attention. At Anderson’s Animal Hospital, we bring over 30 years of experience in veterinary services in Vancouver. At our hospital, we strive to give pets the same level of care received by people.
Every year, you should be taking your pet to their yearly checkup. It is the best way to keep your pet as healthy as possible. Checkups involve checking each part of your pet to ensure that nothing is wrong with them. We check:
Mouth. Bad breath can be a sign of infection. We’ll check for tartar, inflammation, and infections that can make your pet sick.
Ears. The ears can be affected by infections, ear mites, and other problems.
Eyes. We’ll look for signs of cataracts, glaucoma, infections, jaundice, allergies, and any other problems that might come up.
Body. A rub down can help us check your pet’s body muscle tone, weight, as well as swelling in lymph nodes that possibly can be the sign of infection.
Abdomen. Though it seems like just a belly rub, we can feel out if your four-legged friend friend is developing tumors or enlarged organs.
Skin and Coat. We’ll check to for fleas, ticks, mites, and skin infections.
Under the Tail. Tapeworms are among the problems that can be found here.
Joints and Spine. We check for any signs of pain or tenderness here.
Heart and Lungs. Using stethoscopes, we’ll listen for heart murmurs, irregular beats, and if your pet’s lungs are clear.
