Why Schedule a Pet Wellness Exam?

Your pet may seem perfectly healthy -- but is he? Many health problems can lurk invisibly, especially in their early stages. Intestinal parasites, heartworm infestations, organ dysfunction or even deadly cancer may show no signs until the problem is well advanced, by which point the available treatment may prove both more complex and less successful. Catching such problems as early as possible enables your veterinarian in Klamath Falls to initiate treatment right away for optimal results.

It's also important to recognize that a pet's wellness needs and challenges may change over time. A puppy or kitten may have different dietary needs, activity requirements or preventative care schedules than an adult animal, while senior pets face additional risks for age-related diseases and disorders. Pet wellness exams can take these changes into account and address specific problems associated with your pet's time of life. These pet wellness exams are also a great opportunity to talk to your veterinarian in Klamath Falls about any pet care concerns or questions you may have.

What to Expect from Your Pet’s Wellness Exam in Klamath Falls

Regardless of your pet's age, a typical pet wellness exam in Klamath Falls will include a comprehensive evaluation of his health from nose to tail, inside and out. Your vet will:

  • Check vital signs and numbers such as heartbeat, breathing rate, pulse and blood pressure
  • Examine the skin for pests, irritations, infections, wounds or suspicious lumps
  • Submit blood and urine samples for laboratory tests to check internal organ function and detect possible diseases
  • Check fecal samples for any signs of parasitic infestation
  • Examine external features such as the eyes and ears
  • Examine your pet's teeth and oral cavity for any indications or injury, damage or disease
  • Weigh your pet to see whether he is eating too much and/or getting enough exercise

A pet wellness exam is also the most opportune time to have any necessary wellness procedures performed. Your veterinarian in Klamath Falls can administer vaccinations, perform spay and neuter surgery, clean your pet's teeth and take care of any other regular essentials. We can also prescribe medication, recommend exercise programs or dietary changes, and dispense any other treatments or advice based on what we find in the exam.

California CIV Outbreak Leads to Vaccination Recommendation for Oregon At-Risk Dogs

There is a current outbreak of the H3N2 strain of Canine Influenza Virus (CIV) in Silicon Valley that stretches from the San Jose area to San Francisco.
 
At this time there have been 97 confirmed cases of H3N2 CIV by Idexx and Cornell University Animal Health Diagnostic Center, and an increasing number of suspected cases. According to one veterinarian with United Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Hospital in Campbell, Calif., they have seen about 70 dogs with symptoms and/or exposure to the flu.

It is believed that the virus originated in boarding kennels and dog day care centers in the South Bay. Because of the serious concerns with CIV spreading, many canine facilities have temporarily closed. Many boarding and grooming businesses now require a current CIV vaccine.

 

Vaccination of At-Risk Patients Recommended

Because of the geographical proximity between California and Oregon, there is a risk that CIV may be brought into our state. There also is additional concern with the ongoing importation of dogs from the Bay Area to shelters and rescue groups that may introduce H3N2 CIV to Oregon. The Oregon Veterinary Medical Association, the Portland Veterinary Medical Association, and the Public Health Veterinarian, Dr. Emilio DeBess, recommend proactive vaccination of at-risk dogs for CIV to protect these patients and prevent a possible outbreak in our communities.

Dogs in close contact with infected dogs in places such as kennels, groomers, day care facilities, shelters and rescues are at increased risk of infection. In general dogs should be vaccinated with a 2-dose series of bivalent vaccine, 2-4 weeks apart. Full immunity does not occur until 7-10 days after the second immunization in the initial series and is effective for 12 months. Boosters should then be given annually. Vaccination may not all together prevent an infection, but it may reduce the severity and duration of clinical illness.
