Your vet may ask you questions about your pets history including age, travel history, behavioral patterns, diet, exercise, and any past illnesses or surgeries. The doctor will access your pet’s mouth, nose, eyes, and ears. They will also listen to their heart and lungs to asses for any abnormalities. The doctor will palpate their abdomen to evaluate their internal organs, and will check their skin and fur conditions. Depending on their findings, they may perform further examinations or diagnostic tests. The doctor will always discuss any further testing with you before performing them.
