Pet Wellness Exams
We want to be your partner in your pet’s care. Like any relationship, communication is important, and we hope you find value in your pet’s annual exams and check-ups. Bringing your pet to Two Rivers Pet Hospital for physical examinations is crucial to his or her health. We offer thorough physical examinations so that we can detect any potential problems before they become major problems. Many pet health problems can be avoided through regular physical exams, which is why we recommend that your pet has at least two examinations with our staff per year. While physical exams are critical to animal health, you can do your part too by being a vigilant pet owner. If you notice any irregularities with your pet, take detailed notes and bring him or her to Two Rivers Pet Hospital for an examination.
What exactly does a physical exam include? Some things you can’t see, feel, touch, or hear without special tests and equipment, but many times you can gain a lot of information about your pet through simple observation. In a physical exam, your veterinarian looks for anything abnormal. What is considered normal is a combination of what is normal for the breed and what is normal for your specific unique pet. Every pet is a little bit different, just like every human is different. Once the veterinarian does the basic physical exam, any areas of concern will be given more attention.
Many of the diseases that can affect dogs and cats are preventable through proper pet vaccinations. From your first visit to Two Rivers Pet Hospital, we’ll make sure your pet is up-to-date on their vaccines and put on a schedule that makes sure they continue to stay up-to-date.
Depending on your pet’s age, medical history, lifestyle, and environment, our Great Falls veterinarian will discuss the best course of action in regard to your pet’s vaccine schedule. You can bring your cat or dog in as early as eight weeks for his or her first round of vaccines.
You’ll need to bring your pet in every few weeks over the course of about three months for boosters after he/she receives the initial vaccines. Once your pet finishes the initial vaccine series, he/she will receive boosters every 1 to 3 years, depending on the vaccine and lifestyle of your fur-baby.
