Just as humans need to regularly go for a check-up with their primary care physician, so too should pets regularly be taken to an animal hospital. Pets can’t say if something is wrong with them, and even if it becomes obvious without them saying so, they are unable to explain what’s wrong. It’s up to the vet to that figure that out with limited information.
A great way to help is to bring your pet in every year so that your vet becomes acquainted with your pet and can even catch signs of issues before they become a cause for concern. In this video, you will learn what to expect at an animal hospital.
Your visit will begin with filling out a form after speaking to the receptionist. Once inside the examination room, the vet will check the health of the pet. He or she will look at the pet’s teeth and eyes and also listen to its heartbeat. The vet should be able to notice if anything is not as normal as it should be and perhaps spot signs of ailments.
