What Does a Wellness Exam Involve?
A wellness exam is essentially a routine check-up done at a veterinarian clinic in Roswell. While it can vary depending on the species of the pet, it generally includes a physical exam and various laboratory tests. The latter often includes a fecal exam done to check for intestinal parasites. The vet may also perform urinalysis or blood tests. A young and healthy pet will probably need a wellness exam once a year, while a senior pet or one with a chronic condition will probably need one every six months.
Do Birds Need Vaccines?
Sometimes. Young birds, caiques, and macaws sometimes need to be vaccinated against a disease called polyomavirus. This is especially true if they are exposed to other birds quite often. It’s also a good idea to get the vaccine if the client plans on boarding their bird.
How Does a Ferret Age?
A ferret stops growing and is considered an adult when it is four months old. It is considered middle-aged at around four years and is considered old when it reaches six years of age. A ferret can live for up to ten years.
