Wellness Exams

Ask any veterinarian of Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic and they will tell you that the most important diagnostic tool is the physical examination your pet receives during his or her wellness visit. Many aspects of your pet will be inspected at this time, including:

  • Detailed history of health and lifestyle
  • Skin for parasites, dermatological conditions, or lesions
  • Health of the eyes, ears, and mouth
  • Heart, abdomen, and lungs
  • Joints for arthritis or swelling

Wellness Testing & Diagnostics

A wealth of valuable information is obtained during the physical examination, and the next component of diagnoses and wellness checks is house lab work and testing. The staff of Chisholm Trail Veterinary Clinic advocates the use of additional diagnostic tools, like blood work, for every annual exam. Once your pet becomes a senior, we suggest the frequency of these exams and tests be increased to maintain your pet’s quality of life.

Our in-house laboratory increases both the speed and accuracy of our lab work and diagnostic testing. There are many conditions that we can test when your pet visits us, for example:

  • Health of kidneys, liver, and other organs
  • Feline immunodeficiency virus
  • Lime disease
  • Parasites, such as heartworms

Tests such as these help us discover the aspects of your pet’s health that a physical examination may not detect. We also utilize digital radiography and ultrasonic equipment to explore your pet’s health below the surface.
