Pet Wellness Exams
Wellness Exams allow you to keep track of your pet’s long-term health and create an ongoing dialogue with our veterinarians about their current condition, behaviors, and diet.
Wellness Exams at Mission Animal Clinic
Just like you, we want your dog or cat to live the longest, healthiest life possible. That starts with the basics: quality food, enough exercise, good grooming, and yes, regular check-ups.
Annual exams are your pet’s first line of defense against potential illnesses. Mission Animal Clinic’s comprehensive annual exams include checking your pet’s overall health by taking their temperature and examining their skin, coat, lungs and cardiac functions, internal health, oral hygiene, eyes, ears, and demeanor.

We recommend you take advantage of special pricing for the diagnostics listed below if done at the time of your pet’s annual exam.
Comprehensive Blood Panel: A complete blood chemistry panel, including electrolytes provides information about your pet’s liver, kidneys, and pancreas, as well as other functions of the body, such as blood sugar and hydration. A complete blood count (CBC) checks for infection and anemia.
Fecal Testing: Important for diagnosing intestinal parasites that can be dangerous to the health of both you and your pet. Some parasites are zoonotic, meaning that they are transmissible to humans.
Urinalysis: Assesses the physical and chemical composition of urine. Abnormal results usually indicate that there is a problem with the kidneys and/or urinary system. However, a urinalysis can also provide clues about problems in other organ systems, or may indicate the presence of a metabolic disease, such as diabetes.
