Exams and building a veterinarian-client relationship is what allows veterinarians to diagnose and provide prescriptions and treatments. We recommend regular cat and dog physical exams at Fort Saskatchewan Veterinary Clinic Ltd.
An annual exam is most often performed when annual vaccines are due but it does not have to be associated with vaccines. The veterinarian begins by getting a history of how the pet is behaving at home from the owner. Then the veterinarian performs a physical exam on the pet. This may lead to a clean bill of health or recommendations on further testing, treatment or medications.
Medical exams are often booked when an owner discovers a medical concern at home and an annual exam is not due yet. The veterinarian collects a history from the owner, physically examines the pet, and then recommends testing (bloodwork, X-rays, etc.), treatment, or medications as next steps.
We want to give our clients and their pets the best cat and dog physical exams possible. At Fort Saskatchewan Veterinary Clinic, we want your pet to receive the best possible medical care available, so we have equipped our clinic with up-to-date technology. Our technology includes a fully equipped surgery room (with the optional use of a CO2 laser) as well as the following:
