It is always a difficult time when your pet is ill. When your pet is brought in for a medical consultation, you will be asked to provide a full history of any changes in your pet’s daily activities. A physical exam will be performed by the veterinarian which will show indications of any health problems that they may be experiencing. Based on the findings, further options and recommendations will be discussed. These may include, but are not limited too, further diagnostic testing such as bloodwork, radiographs (x-rays), laboratory testing, or medication to go home.
