Examinations

Routine wellness examinations are pivotal to a long, healthy life in your pet. At Three Trails Animal Hospital, our doctors highly recommend that you schedule a wellness examination for your pet once or twice a year, depending on his or her age and health status.

Our goal is to maintain or improve your pet’s health. Scheduling routine check-ups will allow your veterinarian to address potential health concerns, such as pain or disease at their earliest stages. An annual wellness exam is also an opportunity to discuss your pet’s behavior, diet, and much more. Your veterinarian is your best resource as a pet owner, so we encourage you to ask any questions you may have. We are always here to help.

At each annual wellness exam, a veterinarian will conduct a full physical exam to conclude the health status of your pet. Each examination will include a comprehensive list of checkpoints to ensure your pet’s health is in good standing. Our examinations will include:

  • Weighing your pet
  • Looking into the eyes and ears
  • Checking the mouth and gums for signs of dental disease or decay
  • Feeling the muscles and joints
  • Palpating the abdomen
  • Inspecting the skin and fur

If any areas of concern are identified, your veterinarian may recommend additional diagnostic testing.

If you believe your pet is due for a wellness exam, please call our office at 816-252-5105 to set up an appointment at your earliest convenience.
