What makes up your pet’s well visit depends on species, breed, age, and gender. General recommendations for well visits for pets include:

Physical Exams

We recommend twice yearly nose-to-tail and everything in between physical exams for your furry friends.

We realize your schedules are busy, so we can accommodate early morning drop-offs and later pick-up times for your convenience.

During the physical, we examine your pet’s overall health, including:

  • Skin, fur or feathers, paws or feet, eyes and teeth
  • Bone, joints, chest, abdomen and lymph nodes
  • Any specific concerns you have or potential problems that may require a diagnostic evaluation

An advantage of trusting Complete Pet Care with your pet’s health is that we can perform nearly all evaluations on-site. When a specialist is needed in advanced diagnosis, we partner with other institutions in the area for illnesses cared for by a team approach.

Preventive Medication and Immunizations

Our experienced veterinarians at Complete Pet Care identify, recommend and provide preventive medication and vaccinations for your pets. We customize your pet’s best care with the most up-to-date medicine to help ensure health and well-being.

Our Raleigh veterinarians will make recommendations of vaccines for the prevention of:

  • Parasites that can cause your pet serious pain and discomfort, like tapeworms and roundworms.
  • Harmful viruses, depending on what type of animal they are and their exposure to risk factors, like rabies, distemper or parvovirus.
  • Other diseases or health factors that are specific to Raleigh, Wake Forest and the surrounding areas such as ticks, Rocky Mountain spotted fever (transmitted by ticks) and Lyme disease (also spread by ticks).

Early Disease Identification

From hands-on evaluations to lab screenings and imaging, our veterinarians at both Complete Pet Care locations in Raleigh and Wake Forest are vigilant in looking for and preventing early disease. Annual blood testing, stool/urine samples, heart-worm testing, etc. are all vital parts of our arsenal of ensuring your pet’s well-being.

 

Pet wellness plans should include dental hygiene routines.

Pet Health Beyond Wellness Exams: Hygiene is an Important Part of Pet Wellness Plans

You will want to structure your pet’s routine to include fur brushing, bathing, dental care and nail trimming. All of these actions greatly improve the quality of your pet’s health and life.

For dogs and cats specifically, the following is recommended:

  • Every day: brush their fur and teeth
  • Every few months: trim their nails
  • Ongoing: keep your home clean to prevent skin and ear infections
  • Twice per year: schedule routine exams with your veterinarian
  • Annually: Dental cleanings/exam

A note about dental health:
Just like us, pets need routine dental care. Routine hygiene cleaning at-home alone will not be enough to prevent periodontal disease. Pets commonly need annual dental cleanings. This is a safe and gentle process with our caring and knowledgeable staff. We perform dental cleanings every day of the week and we are good at what we do.
