The following images show you what a complete physical exam looks like and what the veterinarian looking for and why.
The image shows you at a glance some of what the veterinarian looks at during the annual physical exam. After the weight has been recorded; the heart and lungs are listened to for normal rate, rhythm and sounds; the ears and the eyes are examined, the teeth are checked and the abdomen is palpated while the veterinarian watches for signs of pain; the back is also examined and so is the skin. If the veterinarian is concerned about what she sees she will discuss her findings with you and may recommend tests. She will ask you many questions about your pet's habits and behaviour.

The veterinarian knows how to examine your pet and what to look for. You will be asked questions about your pet's health and behaviour. The annual physical exam is the cornerstone of good health and good medicine. Pets need a minimum of a full physical exam once a year. As they age or develop health problems more than one annual exam may be needed.
Vaccinations are a very small part of wellness medicine. Your pet needs to be healthy to be able to respond well to vaccinations. The veterinarian will perform a complete physical exam before vaccinating your pet.
Take your pet in to see the veterinarian when ill. It is always best for the veterinarian to see patients early in the course of a disease. This saves your pet discomfort and it saves you money in the long run. The longer a disease has been going on the worse it becomes and the more it will likely cost to treat it.
