Pet Wellness Exam

What's Involved with Wellness Exams?

Wellness exams are integral in vet care because they proactively identify medical issues and give owners peace-of-mind. Dr. Wendy Thomas and Dr. Seth Hartter, our veterinarians, offer wellness exams to the southeast Iowa community. Clients can expect the utmost in professionalism and service when they bring their animals for a visit.


Small Animal Checkups

Preventative care is the focus of small animal wellness exams. Annual checkups and physical exams are important for identifying issues and sharing the latest information on pet care. Preventatives for heartworm and flea/tick issues are typically recommended. Whether your small animal is young or old, exams are a good idea. Vaccinations, in-house laboratory testing, prescription diets, and surgical services are readily available if the wellness exam warrants further procedures.

Wellness exams typically include an investigation of:

  • Head
  • Body
  • Tail
  • Assorted cavities

Large Animal Checkups

Services for sheep, cattle, goats, horses and other large animals are also available. We provide on-farm services for these animals and the necessary equipment to complete exams. Large animals are often a source of income. Conducting wellness exams can yield a favorable return on investment if small issues are identified before they’re allowed to grow or spread. Whether you need pregnancy diagnosis or health certificates, we can help you with veterinary services.

Additional Benefits

When your animal receives a wellness exam, there is a myriad of benefits to be realized. In addition to identifying pertinent medical issues, it also allows for the measurement of your animal’s vital signs. These baseline measurements can be critical for identifying significant medical issues further down the road. Once a veterinarian has been able to examine an animal multiple times, it becomes easier to spot abnormalities and abnormal behavior.
