Does My Pet Need Regular Check-Ups?

Care & Wellness, Cats, Diagnosis, Dogs

Everybody knows the best way to ensure you—or your pet—lives a long, healthy life is by eating well and exercising often. Well, regular visits to the doctor are just as important.

Regular Veterinary Checkups Are The Best Way to Prevent Disease

Annual and semi-annual thorough examinations are important. Even animals that look healthy on the outside could be harboring a hidden sickness. Regular checkups also ensure your pet has all the immunities and protection it needs before it heads outside for warm weather. Our team will check your 4-legged family member from head to tail, update its vaccines, and administer FDA-approved medication to prevent parasites. We also perform regular lab work to check for early signs of disease.

Find Pet Cancer Early

Preventive medicine is also the best way to help animals afflicted with cancer. Regular health screens are more likely to catch tumors when they are still small and removable. Plus, early detection helps doctors to manage the disease while it’s still immature—and we can detect it using even the most basic blood tests. A CBC and a chemistry panel can mean the difference in making your pet feel better and BE AT YOUR SIDE longer.

SAVE Money On Your Pet’s Health Care

Although the cost of preventive care might seem like a luxury, in fact, it could save you from spending much more later on. Preventive care catches many severe conditions early, and staves of others altogether. This saves your pet from unnecessary suffering and saves you a lot of money on expensive treatments.
