Pet Wellness Exams

As pet owners, we all want our furry friends to be happy and healthy. One of the best ways to do this is through annual wellness exams. The goal of a pet exam is to establish a baseline of your pet's general health and allow the veterinarian to detect any developing issues that require treatment. While wellness exams may vary from vet to vet, at Silicon Valley Pet Clinic in Santa Clara, CA, our animal hospital conducts ear to tail exams that can be personalized according to your pet's breed, age, size, and any underlying conditions.

What Happens at a Pet Wellness Exam

When you and your pet visits our team, a veterinarian in Santa Clara will conduct an in-depth exam which might include:

●             Eye, ears, and nose (to check for discharge and abnormalities)

●             Weight check

●             Fur and skin (to check for parasites or dermatologic issues)

●             Teeth and gums

●             Palpate the abdomen (to check vital organs)

●             Listen to heart and lungs with a stethoscope

Additionally, the vet may take additional tests to look for diseases such as diabetes or to look for parasites such as heartworm.

Vaccines and More

The next part of the wellness exam will involve your pet getting hiss annual vaccines. Though vaccinations differ from pet to pet, they are a vital part of the wellness exam and can help ensure your pet is able to fight off potentially deadly diseases.

Toward the end of the visit, a vet on our team will go over any suggestions we may have and services we feel would benefit your pet. Things like dietary changes, supplements, proper exercise, grooming, flea and tick control may all be discussed at wellness exams. Finally, you'll be given the opportunity to ask any questions or voice any concerns you have about your pet's behavior and health.

What our patient say

  • "My dog Buster was in pain and wasn’t acting like himself. I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Gill ASAP. He did a remarkable job during the initial exam to diagnose the problem and recommend additional treatments/services to relieve the pain Buster was in. After doing X-rays and blood work it was determined my little guy was suffering from intervertebral disc disease."
  • "This place was awesome. They took such good care of my giant Rottweiler during an emergency. They even called the next day to check up on her. The price was reasonable too. Went back again and the treatment was great yet again. Love that they stay open late and open everyday. So convenient. Thanks guys for treating my girl as is she was family!"
  • "I’m planning to travel with my baby cat. In order to do that she has to do a Rabies Neutralization Antibody Testing from certified lab. I was lucky to reach out Dr. Gill. He explained to me throughly and helped me to get it done. I would recommend Dr. Gill to everyone who needs professional and friendly help on their loved pets."
  • "I’m very happy with the service and prices of the Silicon Valley Pet Clinic. I have gotten quotes from other vets around and SVPC offers the best value! I took my dog in to get some growths removed and get this teeth cleaned."
  • "My 16 yr old cat Pete had some green discharge coming from his eye. I recently brought a feral kitten in to care for that my cousin found. I figured that Pete probably got scratched in the eye from the little guy."
  • "I was very nervous to have her spayed, especially after going through an episode of Giardia. She has been dealing with poop that is not consistent and we are doing some probiotic treatment."
