At Endicott Animal Hospital in Endicott, NY, we believe that regular checkups and wellness exams are important to your pet’s well-being. These wellness exams give us a chance to evaluate the overall health of your pet while also giving us a baseline for their unique bodies and tendencies.

An annual physical includes a thorough examination or your pet, discussion of any medical concerns, and administration of vaccine boosters as needed. Additionally, we encourage testing for intestinal parasites and for tick-borne diseases and heartworm annually. Flea and tick control, appropriate diet and weight, and behavioral issues are also topics we frequently discuss during the annual physical.

For senior pets (dogs 7 years and above or cats 10 years and above), we recommend testing kidney function annually. Our office can give you information on how to collect samples for testing.

Annual physicals also give your pet the opportunity to become more familiar with our hospital and staff. This can make future exams easier on them and you, especially in the event of an illness or emergency. Please contact us today at (607) 748 7848 to schedule your pet’s annual physical.
