Good health and quality of life of your pets in the long term depends largely on regular check-ups. They will allow us to detect symptoms before the disease has caused lasting and often irreversible consequences.
Information from the initial veterinary examination becomes part of the permanent medical history of your pet. It is filled in an electronic database that allows us to properly trace all subsequent changes in the overall condition.
The standard check-up includes:
- measuring internal body temperature;
- measuring the time for filling the capillaries;
- palpation of superficial lymph nodes;
- color of visible mucous membranes;
- test for hydration of the patient;
- auscultation of the trachea, lungs and heart;
- measuring pulse;
- abdominal palpation;
- neurological status;
- orthopedic status;
- skin and coat status;
- eye and ear status.
Our recommendation is to visit the veterinarian at least twice a year for young animals and at least four times a year – for adults.
We also offer:
- annual preventive examination including laboratory screening;
