Schedule An Examination For Your Dog
How often should your canine friend get an exam? Give the CountrySide Veterinary Services team a call today and we can schedule your dog or puppy's first appointment, where we will meet with you and your dog to give you the best recommendations based upon your dog's needs. Whether your pooch is three weeks old, twelve weeks old, one year old, or ten years old, our skilled veterinarian team will provide regular dog examinations based on the size, age, breed, and gender of your pet.
During Your Dog’s Examination
During your pet’s examination, we listen to their heartbeat and monitor their breathing. We will take time during the visit to inquire about any changes in their behavior or physical symptoms. If any recent changes have occurred, we will suggest tips to either appropriately correct their behavior or diagnose a possible ailment. If there is a health concern, we will discuss the next steps for follow-up exams. There are preventative actions you can take on your own, to help ensure your pet stays happy and healthy.
- Feed your dog high-quality pet food, in appropriate portions depending on the breed, size, and age.
- Periodically check your dog for parasites like ticks, worms, and fleas.
- Protect your dog from harmful diseases by regularly bringing in your furry friend for vaccinations and booster shots.
Puppies will need more frequent exams than adults. During your puppy’s first few visits, we discuss needed vaccines (for common diseases and parasites like rabies and heartworm), as well as the appropriate time to schedule a spaying or neutering procedure, and how to handle diet changes as your puppy matures. You can read more information and a more complete list detailing our puppy care services here.
During your puppy or young dog’s exam, your veterinarian will examine them for illness, appropriate growth rate, and address any questions or concerns you have regarding your furry friend’s health. Please ask our veterinarians questions about what you can do to prevent illness, monitor appropriate weight and growth, provide good dental care, correctly potty train, encourage good behavior, etc.Call to Schedule a Puppy Exam
Adult Dog Examinations
If you own an adult dog, you can bring them in for a checkup once a year. Schedule a routine examination to get dietary, dental, medication, and vaccination recommendations, prevent illness, and answer any questions you may have about their behavior. As they approach the age of 7 or above, we recommend you start bringing them in twice annually for dog care and examinations, as older canines are much more prone to diseases like cancer, diabetes, joint or bone disease, liver disease, and heart disease. It is essential that we detect these diseases early on, before they advance and become more difficult to treat.
We will discuss what you can do as a pet owner to make the later years of their life as happy and comfortable as possible. In addition, our veterinarians will provide recommendations on diet and nutrition, weight, exercise, parasite control, vaccination, disease, and environmental considerations. If you notice changes in their behavior, please discuss this with your veterinarian.Call to Schedule a Dog Exam
