Why Do Pets Need Regular Check-Ups?

Wellness and preventive care aim to prevent pets from developing or contracting avoidable illnesses, medical conditions, and diseases. Just like people benefit from an annual visit to the veterinarian, pets should have regular check-ups, too.

During a wellness appointment, our veterinarian establishes a baseline for your pet’s normal health, which makes it easier for us to spot early signs of developing diseases in the future. Early detection and diagnosis are extremely important, as early treatment is often key to preventing your pet from suffering while being able to cure or effectively manage health problems.

A wellness exam includes a whiskers-to-tail physical examination, with which our veterinarian will look for any abnormalities. We might also recommend a blood test or urinalysis for pets exhibiting any symptoms or simply to screen elderly pets for early signs of age-related diseases. During your pet’s yearly appointment, we’ll also make sure all vaccinations and parasite preventives are current.

Personalized Wellness Care for Every Pet

Wellness and preventive care aim to prevent pets from developing or contracting avoidable illnesses and medical conditions. By proactively evaluating your pet’s health, we stand a better chance of catching potential health issues while they’re most easily treatable.

Young puppies and kittens require more frequent appointments to ensure proper development and growth, and senior pets have their own set of special medical needs, as well. As your pet matures, our veterinary team will help you adjust their lifestyle, nutrition, and wellness plans to meet their current needs.
