Keeping your pet healthy starts with you and a visit to your veterinary doctor for a wellness exam. Regular wellness exams can help detect problems in its early stages, which is especially important with older patients. A typical wellness exam can include a physical exam, vaccinations, blood tests, urinalysis, and a parasite screening. These wellness checks and vaccinations can help prevent life-threatening diseases. Without prevention, your pet could become very sick and can be very expensive to treat.
Only a professional can provide a proper evaluation of your furbaby’s overall health. Your veterinarian can offer recommendations for your pet based on their age, sex, and breed. Regular exams can offer suggestions specifically made for your pet’s diet, playtime, and lifestyle based on their health and risk factors.
