Health Exams

Your pet benefits greatly from regular wellness examinations. At VCA Lakeside Animal Hospital, we recommend that all pets receive a complete physical examination at least once a year, though more frequent exams are encouraged.

Regular exams allow us to spot the signs of disease and illness in your pet and treat them before your pet's quality of life is affected. During an exam, we perform a "nose to tail" evaluation of your pet. We examine his or her vision, hearing, heart, and lung functions, test the joints and muscles, palpate the abdomen, along with many other tests. The information we collect during an exam helps us establish a baseline level of your pet's health and allows us to better treat your pet.
