At Circle Veterinary Clinic, we strongly encourage yearly examinations for all pets. The annual check up is a comprehensive examination of all body systems, conducted by our skilled veterinarians. This screen allows us to determine if any abnormalities exist in your pet's condition. When performed annually, these examinations also allow us to detect changes in conditions including arthritis, dental disease, and eye problems, which may be so gradual that they are hard to detect at home. As part of preventative wellness care, we recommend annual lab tests. We also offer comprehensive Wellness Test Protocols, which include blood tests that can reveal hidden health conditions. Detecting problems early results in better management and a longer, happier life for your pet! If any changes in your pet's health and condition are detected, our veterinarians may recommend further blood tests, x-rays, or other tests to better evaluate the significance of these changes. We encourage you to include annual examinations and routine lab work in your continuing efforts to keep your pet healthy and eliminate any concerns you might have for your pet.
