Why Pet Wellness Exams Really Do Matter

Are you one of those pet owners who only brings your furry friend in to see a veterinarian in Madisonville, LA when they show signs of illness? Do you skip vaccinations because your cat or dog is primarily an ‘indoor pet?’ If so, you could be cheating them out of a longer lifespan and good overall health. Many conditions cannot be visually detected and quite a few serious diseases exhibit little or no early symptoms.

Annual wellness exams at Tchefuncte Animal Hospital in Madisonville can help your pet be a happy, healthy companion for years to come. With a short visit, we can update your pet’s vaccinations and provide comprehensive pet check-ups to determine their overall state of health through a few simple tests. Regular pet check-ups can literally mean the difference between life and death for your pet!

What to Expect During a Pet Exam

The initial aspect of our pet exams in Madisonville is an in-depth consultation with our animal care team. We will ask if you have noticed any changes in your dog or cat’s behavior, appetite or if they have any unusual symptoms you’re concerned about. We’ll take their vital signs, weight, and observe their gait and range of motion in the appendages. Our vet in Madisonville will examine their eyes, ears and mouth and feel their entire body for any signs of organ dysfunction, skin conditions, signs of external parasites and check for indications of sensitive internal regions. We may also ask to take blood, urine and a stool sample to check for conditions such as internal parasites, kidney function, infections and a variety of diseases.
