Your pet trip to the veterinarian is almost as much about educating you as checking out your pet. Besides your many questions and concerns, you need to bring two things with your pet to the exam. The first is whatever health information you have whether from your own observations or from other veterinary hospitals. The second is a fresh stool sample, which is examined for the presence of parasites. An exam is one of the best parts of a veterinarian's job, and your veterinarian will work to keep it as non-stressful as possible. Your doctor wants to set up a relationship where your pet accommodates being handled without fear or aggression. You are an important part of this learning process. Do not encourage shyness or aggression in your pet by soothing her. Be positive and matter-of-fact in all your pet's social interactions in order to raise a confident, secure pet.

Serving Santa Monica Pets For Over 50 Years

While answering your questions, your veterinarian will likely do the following: 	Weigh your pet and check her temperature - 100 to 102.5 degrees Fahrenheit is normal - as well as the pulse and breathing rate. 	Listen for heart and lung abnormalities and examine other internal organs by palpating, or feeling them. 	Give your pet's ears a going-over to ensure they not only look right but also smell right - no infections or parasites. 	Check the pet's genitals to ensure there's no sign of discharge or infection in females. 	Go over eyes, nose, skin, and the anal region carefully to check for discharge or other signs of disease or parasites. 	Open the pet's mouth to see that teeth and gums look as they should.
