Why Annual Wellness Exams

Once an exotic pet shows signs of illness, the animal  (birds included) is really, really sick. This is because they hide their illness, trying to outlast it in hopes they will recover without the rest of the world noticing (they’d get eaten). This is called the Preservation Response and it makes monitoring animals difficult. Annual Wellness exams can often find subtle chances in the animal on physical examination, and through use of bloodwork, and imaging (xrays, ultrasound). It is also beneficial to track the trends in the animal’s health year to year. It’s like you going to your doctor yearly for a physical. Call and schedule your pet for a Wellness Exam today!
