We encourage every pet owner to bring their pets for a physical exam every year to catch any diseases at earlier stages, 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 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
