College Street Wellness Exams

Since your pet cannot express his or her problems, you need to have a complete physical examination done regularly.

What to expect

Veterinarians at College Street Animal Hospital use their specialized knowledge to examine each part and organ of your pet, for any unwanted growth or abnormalities. They may collect blood or stool samples for advanced examinations if needed, to make sure that your pet remains healthy.

What exactly does a physical exam include? Some things you can’t see, feel, touch, or hear without special tests and equipment, but many times you can gain a lot of information about your pet through simple observation. In a physical exam, your veterinarian looks for anything abnormal. What is considered normal is a combination of what is normal for the breed, and what is normal for your specific unique pet. Every pet is a little bit different, just like every human is different. Once the veterinarian does the basic physical exam, any areas of concern will be given more attention.
