Dog Health Check
Whenever your dog comes in for a routine appointment such as vaccinations, our vets will carry out a full health check. This includes examining his ears, eyes and teeth, listening to his heart, feeling his tummy and checking his skin. Senior dogs benefit from a regular check up every 6 months, and we may recommend a more frequent check if your dog has an ongoing medical condition such as arthritis or heart disease, or needs a repeat prescription for medicine.
Following examination, our vets may recommend additional investigations such as looking at a urine sample or taking a blood test to make sure that all is well inside.
During a health check you will be able to bring up any questions you have about your dog’s daily routine such as diet, worm and flea treatment and dental care. At the time of vaccinations we will also provide you with a print out of a summary of our findings and advice.
