Why does my pet need regular visits if they're not ill?
Dogs and cats age much quicker than people. Therefore, significant changes in your pet's health can happen in a short period of time. At your pet's appointment, we can provide an individual assessment and a wellness plan designed specifically for them. Your pet's appointment may include comprehensive physical exams, individualized vaccination programs, as well as parasite treatment and prevention.
How often should my pet have a wellness exam?
We recommend that healthy adult cats and dogs visit the clinic once per year. Puppies, kittens, senior pets, and pets with health issues should visit the clinic more frequently. Wellness exams allow us to get to know you and your pet better. Strengthening these relationships is at the core of our care and practice. Regular visits allow us to provide treatment and prevention protocols better and develop baseline levels used for comparison if your pet becomes ill.
What does my pet's physical exam include?
Physical exams are as important for your pet as they are for you. A thorough physical exam can uncover potential problems in their infancy before they become serious issues. This helps to improve both management and outcomes. Your pet's annual visit is also an excellent opportunity to seek advice on diet, exercise, weight management, and grooming.
