Have you booked yours yet?
It’s hard to believe, but September will soon be turning into October.
As we head back into our September routines, it's the paw-fect time to book your pet's regular health check-up.
HOW OFTEN IS A WELLNESS EXAM REQUIRED?
Although the frequency can vary by breed and by your pet’s unique health circumstances, adult dogs and cats should see a veterinarian annually for a full comprehensive examination and blood work. If you have a senior dog or cat, it is recommended to make appointments with your veterinarian every six months. Pets can age several years over a six-month period of time compared to humans, so a lot can change quickly. This will help you catch changes in your pet’s health more efficiently so they can continue to live a healthy life in their golden years! Your veterinarian will advise you on how often you should be bringing in your pet for their wellness exam.
And while those regular visits to the vet are a must, that’s not the only time you may need to schedule face time with your veterinarian - adult pets may require yearly vaccinations depending on their age and lifestyle, the region you live in, health concerns, disease risk, or plans for travel.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT IN MY PET’S WELLNESS EXAM?
Here you can address any questions or concerns with your vet, and your doctor will perform a hands-on, full body tip of nose to tip of tail examination.
Nutrition and behavior are also addressed, allowing us to make any modifications or recommendations for your pet to live their healthiest and happiest life.
Not to be forgotten – vaccinations and parasite control are part of our yearly visits with your pet. Because we live in a high-risk area, we will ask about your pet's exposure to fleas, ticks, heartworms, and intestinal parasites. We will develop an individualized treatment/preventive plan to address these issues.
Additional testing may also be recommended to diagnose/verify a health problem if any abnormalities are found during your pet’s examination.
A regular wellness exam ensures the health of your pet, and saves you heartache and any financial surprises down the road.
