What Is an Annual Wellness Exam?

Just like people, pets need preventive care to safeguard against serious illnesses and medical conditions. At Pet Method in McKinney, TX, Dr. Hunter Finn recommends annual wellness exams to help your pet live a long, healthy life and detect signs of disease early on. Routine wellness exams typically include a full-body physical exam, dental exam, and heartworm check, along with possible lab tests. Your pet's exam and recommendations will be personalized based on age, breed, and lifestyle. Dr. Finn and his team are passionate about offering excellent care and helping your pet feel calm and comfortable, which aims to make the veterinary experience an enjoyable one for pets and their owners.

What Are The Benefits of An Annual Wellness Exam?

It's not always easy to tell when a pet is sick or in pain. Annual wellness exams give us a chance to check in on their overall health and identify any potential problems early on. Catching diseases early means we can start treatment right away and improve their chances of a full recovery. Dr. Finn understands that your pet is an important member of your family, and we will always work to ensure they receive the best possible care. Pet Method goes above and beyond to make sure you and your pet have a positive experience at our office.

My dogs absolutely love Pet Method. We used to take them to another pet hospital and they would always end up being terrified after the exam. For example, our older dog, Henry, would cower under the chairs after getting his shot or his nails clipped. At Pet Method, they took their time to make sure he was comfy and gave him lots of treats while also clipping his nails in a quick and neat manner. He ended up snoring afterwards in his exam room! We live in Garland and are gladly driving up to this place because we know that our pets would get the best treatment from Dr. Finn and his staffs. 10/10 would definitely recommend them to anyone who's looking for a vet who truly cares about their pets!

The process from scheduling through the appointment was seamless. Dr. Finn was thorough and made sure our golden retriever was comfortable during his procedure. The entire staff was super friendly and spent time with our pup during recovery! Definitely recommend Pet Method.

I was very happy that this vet clinic offers a membership so I can have as many vet visits as I need for my pet in a year for just one flat fee. Dr. Finn is awesome and super nice, as well as his staff. I’ve never been to a clinic where the staff literally sat on the floor with my cat trying to get him to come out from hiding and when he did they just stayed sitting on the floor petting him. I thought that was so sweet and definitely made my cat Tate feel more comfortable and not scared. Thank you guys!

All of the staff was so great with our dogs! Our Aussie is a bit more shy and takes some time to warm up but they were extremely patient and provided lots of yummy snacks! Definitely a great environment in comparison to other vet offices. Everyone really loved on the dogs and were understanding of their different personalities. The pricing is really fair after looking at the invoice. I didn’t even consider prices during the appointment because the quality care would be worth any amount. Never felt rushed and they were all so open to any questions I had, including the vet.

What Happens During A Wellness Exam?

At your pet's wellness exam, Dr. Finn will talk with you about your pet's overall health, behavior, and lifestyle. If you have any concerns about your pet (such as problems with elimination, appetite, etc.), you can share these during your visit. A head-to-tail examination will be performed to check all essential indicators of health, such as your pet's organs, breathing, bones, joints, and heart health. Dr. Finn will recommend any necessary diagnostic tests (like parasite screenings or blood work), vaccines, or lifestyle changes to help ensure optimal health for your pet. While most pets will need one exam per year, Dr. Finn might recommend more frequent wellness visits for older pets or those with chronic health issues.

After Dr. Finn conducts the wellness exam, he will review the results with you and let you know of any points of concern or new conditions he would like to test for or confirm. At this time, he may also recommend any new medications your pet should begin taking, advise of any changes to make to your pet’s diet, and any habits that you need to look out for or change for your pet. Additionally, should your pet require any follow-up appointments or a visit to a specialist, Dr. Finn or a team member will help you schedule these or refer you to the appropriate place.

What happens in a wellness exam?
Pet annual wellness exams share some parallels with human ones. Your furry friend's weight and vitals will be recorded, along with receiving the necessary vaccinations and wellness tests. You also will be able to voice any concerns and refill any prescriptions your pet may need.
How often should my pet have an exam?
As the name suggests, an annual wellness visit should happen once a year. This allows our team to update any of their vaccinations or booster shots. In addition, we can establish a baseline of health for your pet over time to understand if any changes or injuries occur.
What treatments will my pet need?
Every year, dogs usually receive boosters that can include distemper, parvo, and rabies. Cats may receive different boosters, such as feline distemper, rhinotracheitis, and calicivirus. All types of pets have various boosters and shots required at various times in their life which are worth consulting with your veterinarian about.
