Mobile Vet performing eye exam

Now, look DEEP into my eyes…

 

The physical exam is the mainstay of the veterinarian. Since our patients cannot talk and tell us what is wrong we rely on our physical exam skills to evaluate and diagnose our patients. Starting with the tip of the nose and moving toward the tail, we carefully examine all of the body’s systems. Although the hands are the most important tool used, theĀ stethoscope, ophthalmoscope and otoscope are also valuable tools.
