All patients who come to ABC Veterinary Clinic of Lewisville for wellness care in Lewisville receive a comprehensive snout-to-tail examination. This exam doesn’t take long, but it allows us to gather a substantial amount of information about your pet and their overall condition. Having your pet examined regularly also provides an opportunity for us to detect problems early and begin treatment right away. Early detection and treatment typically lead to a better prognosis and can save you a lot of money in the long run.
If you have a young, healthy pet, we recommend bringing them in for annual exams. If, however, you have a pet that is older or not in excellent health, we may recommend bringing them in for an appointment every six months or so instead of waiting an entire year.
Our annual exams also include blood work to check on your liver and kidney functioning. Blood works helps in early detection of diseases like diabetes, hypothyroidism, cushing’s disease, kidney problems and other liver disorders. Our veterinarians might recommend additional diagnostics, if needed.
