At Market Hill Animal Hospital we highly recommend a complete physical examination and wellness check for your pet at least once a year. Pet examinations consist of a thorough physical (“nose to tail”) inspection of your pet, and a gathering of medical and other relevant history. Examinations are essential in detecting hidden problems before they develop further into serious health issues and conditions, much like your own annual check-up. We can perform a wellness profile which is a baseline blood profile that will provide us with objective information about the health status of your pet which sometimes is not evident upon physical examination alone. A wellness profile will check the liver and kidneys among 30 other items and indexes and give us optimal insight into the health and wellbeing of your pet.
