One Year Check up at Vet

What should our vet do on the one-year check up of Bella?

At the yearly check ups for the girls, my vet checks their weight, looks in their ears, listens to heart, lung and belly through the stethoscope, takes a temp and palpitates them all over looking for any lumps, bumps or anything out of the ordinary. He checks teeth and gums. At the one year they also got a booster shot. Pretty much the same as any other check up with the exception of the booster.

In addition to what Susan posted, your vet should also check the patellas, just to make sure that Bella's are nice and firm (and not luxating/flexing).
