Importance of Preventative Care for Pets

Pets should have regular checkups to ensure optimal health and wellbeing. For pets, these visits may be important.

Pets can’t communicate through words. If they are in pain or suffering, they can do no more than whine, cry, or bark. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to know what they are trying to say.

A veterinarian can spot issues with your pet. If anything is detected, a treatment plan can begin, hopefully getting your pet back to feeling good as quickly as possible.

A pet check up isn’t just about addressing current pain and suffering, though. It’s also about preventing issues in the future, including everything from weight issues and dental care problems to potentially fatal medical conditions.

What Happens during a Pet Check Up?

A veterinary check up is a way to monitor your pet’s pet health. Our team will talk with you about any issues you’ve noticed or are aware of. We want to get to know your pet and you to help provide the best care and recommendations.

We’ll perform an exam, this might include taking vital signs, checking his skin, listening to his chest, observing how he walks and his posture, checking his eyes and ears, and more. Our veterinary team seeks to check his current health as well as screen for potential health issues. We might also take a look at his dental health, providing recommendations, and any needed dental care.

After a full examination, a personalized health plan can be developed for your pet. We are happy to answer any questions you might have and provide help guidance in any area you might need, such as training, exercise, and diet.
