Wellness Exams

At Village Veterinary Hospital in La Jolla, we understand that your pet's health is a top priority. That's why we offer comprehensive wellness exams to keep your furry friend happy and healthy for years to come.

Why Wellness Exams Matter

Regular wellness exams are essential for maintaining your pet's overall well-being. These exams allow our experienced veterinarians to detect any health issues early on, before they become more serious and costly to treat. By catching problems early, we can provide prompt treatment and help ensure your pet enjoys a high quality of life.

What to Expect During a Wellness Exam

During your pet's wellness exam at Village Veterinary Hospital, our compassionate veterinarians will conduct a thorough evaluation of your pet's overall health. This includes:

  • Physical Examination: We will carefully examine your pet from nose to tail, checking for any signs of illness or abnormalities.
  • Vaccinations: We will review your pet's vaccination history and administer any necessary vaccines to protect against common diseases.
  • Parasite Prevention: We will discuss parasite prevention options and may recommend testing for heartworms, intestinal parasites, and other parasites.
  • Nutrition and Weight Management: We will provide guidance on proper nutrition and weight management to help keep your pet at a healthy weight.
  • Dental Evaluation: We will examine your pet's teeth and gums for signs of dental disease and recommend dental care as needed.
  • Behavioral Assessment: We will discuss any behavioral concerns you may have and provide guidance on training and behavior modification if needed.
  • Senior Pet Care: For senior pets, we will conduct additional screenings and tests to monitor for age-related health issues.
