Pet Wellness in Mount Kisco
At Mount Kisco Veterinary Clinic, we believe that preventive care is the cornerstone of long-term health and happiness for our patients. To keep your pet as healthy as possible for as long as possible, we recommend regular pet wellness exams as an important part of maintaining your pet’s continued comfort and well-being. Consistent preventive care can save your pet unnecessary suffering and save YOU unwanted expense and worry.
What to Expect During Your Pet’s Wellness Exam
Pet exams at Mount Kisco Veterinary Clinic include a multi-faceted approach that evaluates your pet’s overall health and risks for disease or other health problems. Based on the findings, we can help you with recommendations specifically tailored to your pet’s health status and risk factors.
During their routine wellness screening, your pet will undergo a thorough physical examination, as well as basic lab work to screen for fecal parasites, heartworms, and tick-borne diseases. We also stress the importance of year-round parasite prevention at home, weight management, and oral health maintenance, to avoid preventable disease.
Your pet’s preventive care exam will include:
- A thorough, head-to-tail exam, including a check of your pet’s teeth, eyes, ears, and skin
- A check of your pet’s weight
- Age appropriate screenings to detect illness
- Parasite control and preventives for pests like heartworms, fleas and ticks
As your pet gets older, our screening includes semi-annual exams as well as blood/urine tests to assess the health of the kidneys, liver, thyroid and other organ systems. When problems are detected prior to your pet feeling ill, we have a greater likelihood of correcting them, often in a safer and more cost effective way.
