The Importance of a Physical Exam

A complete physical exam is a key component of your pet’s visit at The Pet Hospitals! Click the above link to see a few of our veterinarians thoroughly explain what they are looking for and why it is essential! 

During the physical exam, your doctor can:

  • Check over your pet from head to tail.
  • Check the eyes, ears, nose, and mouth for problems. Here they can find cataracts, diabetes, and the like.
  • Diagnose dental disease before it is affecting your pet’s heart.
  • Listen to the heart and lungs for any abnormalities.
  • Feel the skin and look for lumps, bumps, or little critters.
  • Be sure the pet’s range of motion is normal.
  • Search for any masses you may not notice.
