Exams and Consultations

Regular exams – at least once a year – and consultations with your vet are an important part of keeping your pet healthy and happy. When you bring your pet to Affordable Animal Hospital Silverlake for a checkup, our highly trained veterinarian will perform a complete physical exam, thoroughly review your pet’s medical history, and recommend further diagnostic testing if appropriate to your pet’s overall health condition.

What is covered in an Exam?

When you bring your pet in for a checkup, we perform a thorough examination of every system in the body. When our doctors conduct a physical exam, we will evaluate:

  • Weight and temperature

  • Respiratory system
  • Glands and lymph nodes
  • Heart
  • Abdomen
  • Gastrointestinal system

A Full Health Check-Up for your Pet

When you bring your pet in for a checkup, we perform a thorough examination of every system in the body. When our doctors conduct a physical exam, we will evaluate:

  • Skeletal and muscular health (especially checking for healthy muscles and any joint pain)
  • Neurological health
  • Weight
  • Lymph nodes (swollen lymph nodes can signify an infection, wound, virus or other illness)
  • Vital signs
  • Skin and coat (especially looking for growths, infections, or wounds)

In addition to a careful medical history review, we ask questions about your pet’s activities and habits, for a better picture of your friend’s overall health. We also offer nutritional counseling as needed, based on our examination. If the checkup reveals any potential health problems, we may recommend blood work, X-rays, or other diagnostic testing, as well as treatment for any health issues your pet may have.

Regular wellness exams help your pet become more familiar with our animal hospital, doctors and staff, and that can make life easier for both of you during your pet’s future office visits. At Affordable Animal Hospital Silverlake, our goal is to help your pet live a long, healthy, happy life.
