Wellness & Preventative Care

Brentwood Country Animal Hospital provides a full range of wellness and preventative care services for your cats and dogs.

In general, we recommend annual physical exams with the veterinarian, and customize recommendations based on your pet’s age, weight, activity level, and genetic factors.

During regular exams, the veterinarian will examine:

  • Cardiopulmonary system (heart and lungs)
  • Ears
  • Eyes
  • Oral Cavity / Teeth
  • Skin
  • Abdominal Organs (by palpation of the abdomen)
  • Musculoskeletal System
  • Weight
  • Attitude / Behavior

Vaccines are given during wellness exams, and diagnostic testing, including blood, stool, and urine samples may be done as well.

While we do our best to perform the exam in the exam rooms, it may be necessary to bring your pet into our treatment area, depending on the circumstances of the visit and the treatments that are being given.
