Veterinary Exam

Book your pet's next wellness exam to keep them happy and healthy.

At Simcoe Animal Hospital, we do a full physical examination from head to toe yearly, to make sure your pet is happy and healthy. Regular physical examinations by a veterinarian can help detect health concerns early which can prevent severe complications later in life. If you are new to the Simcoe Animal Hospital family, please take a moment before your first visit and call us at 519-426-0111 so that we can let you know what you need to bring for your first appointment.

We understand that you have a lot on your plate. For this reason, we do our very best to accommodate your busy schedule! We book medical consultations Monday through Friday, from 8:00 am to 7:00 pm. If you and your pet are unable to stop by for an in-person visit, we also offer virtual consultations via phone, chat and video.

How often should a pet go to the vet?

Although each pet is different, we recommend that they come in for a full veterinary exam at least once a year. More visits may be suggested for younger pets, those with certain health conditions and those in their senior years.

What happens during a veterinary exam?

Your veterinarian will conduct a tip-to-tail visual exam on your pet. They will check their mobility, appearance, sight, hearing, breathing, weight and other health factors. Diagnostics such as urine/fecal sampling, blood work, ultrasounds and more may also be performed so we can get a comprehensive picture of your furry friend’s well-being.
