Veterinary Exams

Schedule your pet's next wellness checkup to keep them happy and healthy.

At the Clinique Vétérinaire Plateau Mont-Royal, we are committed to ensuring that your pet always receives complete and thoughtful care. Veterinary exams are one of the fundamental services we provide to protect the health and well-being of your four-legged friend.

What is a veterinary exam and why is it important for my pet?

A veterinary exam is a full and complete assessment of your pet’s health by a qualified veterinarian. It is an essential tool to detect potential health problems early, prevent illness and maintain your pet’s overall health. Regular vet checks are crucial for a happy and healthy life for your pet.

How often should my pet have a veterinary exam?

The recommended frequency for veterinary exams depends on your pet’s age, overall health and individual needs. For animals in good health, we generally recommend an annual visit. For older animals, or those with chronic health issues, more frequent checkups may be necessary.

What happens during a veterinary exam?

During the exam, our vet will carefully examine your pet from head to tail. This includes assessing your pet’s weight, coat, eyes, ears, mouth, heart, lungs, joints and abdomen. You’ll be asked a few questions about your pet’s behaviour, diet and physical activity to help build up a picture of their overall health.

Does a veterinary exam include vaccinations?

Yes, a vet exam is also an opportunity to update your pet’s vaccinations if necessary. Our veterinary team will remind you of the vaccinations recommended for your pet based on age, lifestyle and legal requirements. To learn more, visit the Vaccination pages on our website.
