Like humans, pets must be seen by a doctor at least once a year. However, the physical examination of your dog is slightly different from humans, and of course, you need to give information to the vet because their patients are unable to tell them what is wrong.
First, make sure to write all the questions you may have to the vet. Secondly, make a block and paper for consideration. This allows you to write everything your vet tells you, as the amount of food to feed your dog or series of exercises.
When your dog gets first in the examination room, they will get their weight checked. This allows the veterinarian to see if your dog is an appropriate weight and has not won or lost a significant amount of weight in the previous year.
A dog temperature is higher than the temperature of a human, between 100 and 103 degrees Fahrenheit. However, keep in mind that some dogs get high temperatures due to stress and could just have a slightly higher temperature to be the vet.
The eyes of your dog are examined for problems such as cataracts, acute care, dull eyes, or discharge. The nose of your dog is viewed from any runny nose, what could be the result of a certain type of disease or illness such as kennel cough. The ears are also checked for the accumulation of wax, which could cause ear mite and yeast infections. Dogs with ears that flap over are more prone to ear infections because their ears are warmer regions of the yeast grow and are not exposed to air as much as dogs with pointed ears.
Finally, the mouth and teeth are examined. The teeth are checked for tartar build up. The gums are also checked. If a dog looking pale gums, they are sick and need to be treated immediately. Healthy gums should look pink.
The heart and lungs are also checked. The lungs are checked with a stethoscope for any congestion or cough abnormalities. The heart is checked for all deficiencies, such as heart murmurs. The skin is also checked for lumps, cuts or swelling. The hair is looked over for any knots or drought
The abdomen will be felt for any lumps, possible infection, or tenderness and spine and tail are felt to any cord or nerve problems. Finally, feet and nails are checked for cuts and swelling. The nails are looked over by ensuring they are not too long and if they are, they will be cut to length.
Sometimes pets do not have symptoms or problems that could put the health of your pet at risk. The purpose of the annual physical examination is not to punish your pet, but just to check, make sure they are healthy and live long, happy and healthy.
