Health Checks

Only $50 for a 15 minute health check for your pet.


The most important annual health screenings for dogs and cats:

  • Vaccination Status
  • Worming Status 
  • Skin Health Status - Fleas and mange - Easy to diagnose.  Easy to treat.  Treated in house right there and then. 
  • Flea Treatment Dispensing - Let us dispense some flea treatment and save you buying an entire pack of product.
  • Arthritis
  • Heart check
  • Dental health

If we find something that we feel requires further investigation such as a general blood test then we will discuss this fully with you during your health check visit.  Of course this will increase the costs but again we will try to keep these as low as possible.


Why should I get my pet checked?

Pets, on average, age five to eight times faster than humans. By age two, most pets have already reached adulthood. At age four, many are entering middle age. By age seven, many dogs, particularly larger breeds, are entering their senior years.

Because pets age so rapidly, major health changes can occur in a short amount of time. The risk of cancer, diabetes, obesity,arthritis, heart disease and other serious conditions all increase with age.

At Central Vets & Pets we appreciate that today’s pets are living longer than ever, and there is a good chance that many may experience a potentially serious illness during their lifetime.

Annual health checks can help your veterinarian diagnose, treat or even prevent such problems before they become life-threatening. Some conditions that often go un-noticed by the owners that have significant health implications for your pet include arthritis, heart conditions, kidney and liver issues, obesity and dental problems. 

These are readily identified during regular veterinary health check ups and can be rapidly and effectively treated for relatively little money. 

The best thing about these commonly occurring conditions is that when treated, the quality of life for your pet improves and they have the best final years getting the most out of life.

So often, from a relatively inexpensive blood test, we diagnose issues with older pets that were unknown to the owner and from this, our veterinary surgeons can prescribe a new course of treatment or diet and significantly increase the life span of your pet which is great.

Health checks are also a great opportunity for you to ask about any concerns you may have about your furry friend.
