They will examine the backs of the eyes

3

They will check the state of their teeth and gums

4

They will check the lymph nodes

5

They will carry out a cardiopulmonary auscultation

6

They will feel their abdomen

7

They will inspect the health of their skin, coat and claws

8

They will check body temperature

9

They will examine the vulva or penis and testicles

10

They will check how they move and their posture

11

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.
