Wellness Exams

Dog South Pasadena Animal Hospital

Protection & Prevention

 The exam is essential for every pet, whether they are young or old. It is necessary to detect any health issues early enough to prevent them from turning into serious problems.


During a wellness exam at South Pasadena Animal Hospital, your pet will undergo a thorough physical examination, which may include some or all of the following:

  • Checking heart and lung function through auscultation with a stethoscop

  • Examination of the eyes, ears, and nose for any abnormalities

  • Analysis of the mouth, teeth, and gums for dental issues and periodontal disease

  • Palpation of the abdomen to check for any lumps, unusual masses, or pain

  • Checking the skin and coat for parasites, infections, or lesions

  • Feeling the lymph nodes for any swelling or pain


Dr. Chiang or Dr. Navia may also ask a few questions about your pet’s diet, physical activities, and behavior to detect any underlying health issues. If a problem is detected, the veterinarian may recommend necessary procedures or additional testing to determine the extent of the problem.
