Comprehensive Pet Exam

A Nose-to-Tail Inspection

The physical exam is a very important aspect of your pet’s wellness. During this exam, the doctor evaluates the entire pet, which includes:

  •  An eye exam using an ophthalmoscope
  • An ear exam using an otoscope
  • A heart exam using a stethoscope

Other points evaluated include teeth, skin, coat, vital signs, body condition and joints. Doctors also use their hands to palpate the abdominal contents. On average, veterinary physical exams discover three additional health concerns than what is known by the pet owner.
