  • Mouth/dental examination
  • Movement
  • body temperature (if deemed necessary)
  • blood pressure (if deemed necessary)

Who conducts the pet heath check?

The initial health check will be carried out by a final year veterinary student, working under the close supervision of an experienced veterinary surgeon. The vet will also examine your pet and discuss any findings or treatment required.

Where does the pet health check take place?

Pet health checks take place in our state-of-the-art veterinary hospital in Camden hospital where all of your pet’s needs can be catered for. House visits may be booked under exceptional circumstances but this will incur additional fees. 

How often should my pet have a health check?

All pets should have a full health check once per year (usually at the time of their annual vaccination). We recommend that older pets (cats over ten years, dogs over eight years old) are checked every six months as they can be prone to developing age related health conditions.
