Adult and Senior Wellness

A wellness examination is a routine medical examination of a patient that is apparently healthy, as opposed to wan examination of a patient that is ill.  A wellness exam may also be called a 'check-up' or a 'physical exam'.  The focus of a wellness visit is the maintenance of optimal health. 

During puppy-hood wellness exams are recommended on a monthly basis, while for the average adult dog annual wellness examinations are the norm, and for middle aged or geriatric dogs semi-annual exams are recommended.
