An annual physical exam is very important part of your pets long term health. Dr. Suzi Lanini will examine your pets teeth, eyes, ears and skin. She will listen to your pet's heart and lungs. Then she will feel for lumps in the skin as well as palpate the abdomen for any changes. The annual exams helps us track your pets health, allows Dr. Suzi Lanini to make recommendations for your pets long term health and give us an opportunity for early detection of illness. This exam also gives you the opportunity to ask questions about care during all life stages or changes that you may be noting over the course of a year.
Depending on your pets life style we will recommend the best care for your companion. Typical preventative care includes internal parasite prevention, external parasite prevention and vaccinations.
There are a wide variety of vaccinations available and we will identify the vaccinations that are needed.
We also will recommend flea and tick prevention that can be as simple as a topical liquid once monthly or a chewable treat once every three months. Heartworm prevention will also be recommended.
Heartworm is a blood parasite that lives near the heart and can cause congestive heart failure. Preventing heartworm is as easy as a once monthly treat.
As pets age it is important to maintain good dental health. The first step is an exam with Dr. Suzi Lanini to discuss ways to improve their health. This can be done by brushing the teeth, providing dental chews or anesthetic dental cleanings.

It is recommended when puppies and kittens come in for their spay/neuter surgeries that they get blood work performed before their procedure. This blood work is very important for the evaluation of their internal organ function and cell health but also is very important in future years as it serves as a reference that can be tracked for changes over time.
Adult pets will have a more comprehensive blood panel performed. It will evaluate organ function and cell counts. This blood work may also include thyroid checks and/or a urine test, allowing for a more comprehensive over view of their health. This lab work can be compared year to year and can help us detect early signs of illness.
