Wellness Exams

Regular check-ups keep your pet in tip-top shape!

Your JCU Veterinarian is dedicated to takes pride in getting to know you and the individual needs of your pet. During a wellness exam, we will develop a suitable health care plan including vaccinations, microchip identification, dental care, weight/nutritional planning and more. We recommend that you book your pet in for a wellness exam every six months.

This is also an important opportunity for your vet to conduct a physical examination of your pet and where possible detect health issues before they become serious problems. Since our patients cannot talk, we need to work hard to see that they are happy and healthy.

Remember, our pets age approximately seven years to our one year, so this visit is similar to you seeing your Doctor or Dentist every 3-4 years!

During the wellness exam, your vet will be inspecting your pet’s eyes, ears, nose, mouth, teeth, skin, coat, weight, heart, temperature, lungs/airway and joints. This process will allow us to make educated decisions about your pet’s healthcare, according to their individual needs.
