Dr. Kanouse will assess your pet's physical condition to determine that they are healthy enough to go ahead for their scheduled surgery. This check-up includes looking for parasites (fleas, ticks), recording body condition, checking posture and gait while palpating the limbs, looking at mucous membranes and evaluating your pet's general well-being.
Some pets might think they are just in for a routine vet visit and some might be very scared and nervous. In keeping with our commitment to a Fear Free Culture, we will take every measure to reduce your pet's anxiety. If they need some extra attention and soothing, we are happy to provide it for them.
