Wellness Exams

At Sechelt Animal Hospital we provide 30 minute appointments so that we can perform a thorough exam and have a detailed discussion with you about your pet.  

We believe that taking the time to discuss and better understand your pet's lifestyle and your concerns about your pet gives us the important information we require to help provide the best care possible for your family pet.

Variations in appetite, water consumption, activity levels, elimination habits and social behavior can give us important clues about your pet’s health that won’t necessarily be revealed by an examination alone.

Annual wellness exams are an important way to maintain your pet’s health and comfort.


During your pet's appointment, the doctor will examine and assess all areas of your pets health including:

  • General appearance and demeanor
  • ​Skin and coat
  • Eyes, ears and nose
  • Mouth and teeth
  • Heart and lungs
  • GI Tract
  • Skeletal system including musculature
  • Urogenital system
  • Lymphatic system
  • Nutrition and weight management
  • Lifestyle


A wellness exam is performed by a veterinarian before a treatment plan for your pet can be made. 

We strive to give each client a thorough understanding of their pet's health, and to give each patient the care, compassion and treatment that they deserve.Your doctor will discuss any concerns you may have with your pet's health and will present you with a customized treatment plan.
