We believe the best way to promote overall health is through preventative care. Regular checkups allow us to establish a baseline in your pet's health and make us aware of any changes that may indicate future problems.
We highly recommend bringing them to our hospital for regular exams. Often times health problems that go undetected can become more serious issues when left untreated, so veterinary checkups are important even when your pet appears healthy. Just as annual physical exams are recommended for humans, they are recommended for our pets as well. If your dog is older or has medical problems, he may need even more frequent examinations. A year is a long time in a dog's life. Assuming our pets will live to their early teens, receiving a yearly veterinary exam means they will only have about thirteen exams in a lifetime. That is not very many when you think about it.
