Pet Exams

Pet Exams

Many pet owners will only schedule appointments with the vet when their pet is sick. This is a mistake. There are several reasons why it is important to schedule annual exams with our team at West Boca Veterinary Center in Boca Raton.

Head To Tail Exam

During the annual pet care visit, one of our veterinarians will perform a head to tail exam. During this exam, our vet will check your pet's eyes, ears, nose, teeth, and gums. We will also listen to your pet's heart, lungs, and measure his respiration. Finally, the vet will have your pet walk for a while so we can examine his gait. This exam is essential because underlying medical conditions can be detected early and treated quickly.


If your pet is going to live a long and healthy life, he will need to get the vaccinations that he needs. If you don't schedule annual exams with our veterinarians, he won't get the vaccinations that he needs to stay safe. Most states require pets to have at least a rabies vaccination as needed.

Weight Checks

One of the most important reasons to schedule annual pet exams is to have your pet weighed. Pet obesity is a very serious problem. If the vet determines that your pet is overweight, we can discuss diet and exercise regimens that can help get your pet down to a healthy weight. Extra weight puts stress on your pet’s joints and may cause unnecessary pain for your pet.
