What is a Wellness Exam?
Chisholm Trail Veterinary clinic tailors your pet’s wellness exams according to their age, weight, and health requirements. We offer specialized exams for puppies, adult, and senior pets. During your pet’s wellness exam, your pet’s veterinarian evaluates their skin, eyes, ears, mouth for signs of disease or infection. We listen to your pet’s breathing and heartrate and press on their abdomen to feel the organs for signs of abnormality. Your pet’s veterinarian will ask you questions about your pet’s eating, behavior, and sleeping habits to address any of your pet’s health needs.
