Edmond Pet Exams & Wellness Checks
Regular Checkups Are Essential for Healthy Pets
An important part of your pet’s health and longevity is regular visits to the veterinarian. We know that, for many pets, these visits aren’t enjoyable, but at Family Pet Hospital, we strive to make every visit as comfortable as possible. Your pets are an important part of your family and we treat them with the utmost care and integrity – as if they were part of our own family.
Regular veterinary exams allow us to notice trends in your pet’s health and spot any worrying changes before they become bigger issues. Most pets should come in for a visit every six months, though visits might need to be more frequent depending on your pet’s needs.

What to Expect
Wellness exams for your pet are very similar to the annual physical humans receive at their own doctor’s office. Our Edmond veterinarians will examine your pet from head to tail and everything in between. This will give us a good start in assessing your pet’s current health.
Topics your veterinarian may ask about during the exam:
- Activity level
- Behavior and habits
- Bowel movements
It’s helpful for us to know about any conditions you already know your pet is experiencing. Combined with your pet’s medical history and your answers to the questions above, our veterinary professionals will be able to get a clearer picture of your pet’s health.
For even more detail, we might ask for laboratory tests for your pet. These tests will give us a picture of what’s going on inside your pet and further refine our picture of your pet’s overall health.
Laboratory tests may include:
- Fecal check
- Heartworm testing
Regular laboratory testing is helpful in understanding what diseases your pet might be predisposed to, as well as to check on conditions we already know exist. Based on all this information, we’ll be able to customize a health plan tailored to your pet’s needs. Our goal is to help you provide your pet with the highest quality of life, and to ensure your pet’s longevity.
We’re Here for You Too
