Why Routine Exams Are So Important
Animals can’t always tell us when they’re feeling under the weather, but they may exhibit signs like a loss of appetite or stilted movement, so it’s up to pet parents to schedule routine wellness checks. This time with us is all part of providing a wholesome, happy, and healthy life for your treasured companions.
On their second birthday, you might still view your pets as puppies and kittens, but in animal years they’ve entered adulthood. The aging process in animals is rapid compared to humans. Did you know, on average, one human year equals 5-7 cat/dog years. And this means major health changes can occur in the blink of a cat’s eye.
Routine wellness checks can help diagnose, treat, or prevent health problems. We believe prevention is the best cure for most ailments. This means regular check-ups and vaccinations to keep your pet in top shape. A routine wellness check includes an examination of your pet for abnormalities, listening to the heart and lungs, and checking eyes, ears, and mouth.
Afterwards, the vet will decide if further tests are needed. It’s also the perfect time to chat with us about nutrition, your pet’s behaviour, dental care, and any concerns you might have.
Even if your furry friend is living its best life, getting them routinely checked by a veterinarian can help improve their life span.
