Dr. Salzsieder's wellness plans include two comprehensive exams a year for adults and one comprehensive exam per year for pediatric patients, complete with a nine-page evaluation of the patient for the client to take home. This feature is a great selling point because he doesn’t offer comprehensive exams otherwise (valued at $135 for each examination)—they’re only available with the plan. The comprehensive exam includes these components:

  • weight and body condition
  • coat and skin condition
  • presence of lesions
  • abdominal palpation
  • urogenital exam
  • rectal exam
  • ear exam
  • cardiovascular evaluation
  • neurological evaluation
  • radiography
  • flea control prescription (just to make sure the patient is current and that the products are working).
