At Quail Corners Animal Hospital we believe in educating our clients on all procedures, preventative health, basic pet care, and training tips. The more you know about your pet, the better equipped you will be to meet your pet's needs.
Your pet's annual wellness exam will include a complete physical to include a thorough examination of the eyes, ears, teeth, heart, lungs, abdomen, body condition and hair coat. Because even the most cooperative pet may not readily go-along with a tooth and gum brushing, an annual dental cleaning by your veterinarian may be in order. Like you, your pet can lose his teeth due to decay and neglect. It's a good idea to keep an accurate medical diary not only of the procedures and vaccinations your pet receives at the vet, but also of notes on things like your pet's elimination habits and any physical changes or unusual occurrences. Keep track of small shifts in your pet's behavior, including urinary marking habits and mood swings, along with diet and routine modifications. Take this notebook with you to discuss with the veterinarian.
