Visits to the vet are imperative to look after your dog’s health. Generally speaking, at each visit, your vet will carefully examine your dog:
They will inspect the inner and outer parts of their ears, and their nostrils
They will examine the backs of the eyes
They will check the state of their teeth and gums
They will check the lymph nodes
They will carry out a cardiopulmonary auscultation
They will feel their abdomen
They will inspect the health of their skin, coat and claws
They will check body temperature
They will examine the vulva or penis and testicles
They will check how they move and their posture
If your dog is female and is not neutered, you will have to tell them the date of their last oestrus.
Additionally, if necessary, the vet will update the obligatory vaccinations calendar so as to administer those that need boosting, if applicable.
