Wellness Examinations

Our physical exams include a head-to-tail assessment:

  • Check body weight and temperature.
  • Look at the eyes, ears, and nose.
  • Check the lymph nodes.
  • Look in the mouth to assess the health of the teeth and gums.
  • Evaluate the heart and lungs.
  • Feel the abdomen to check the internal organs including the kidneys and liver.
  • Evaluate the muscles, spine and joints.

After the examination, we carefully document our findings and give you our recommendations for any health problems we find.
