Maintain Your Pet’s Good Health With Regular Wellness Exams
Because dogs and cats age faster than humans, they need more frequent examinations. Twice yearly head-to-tail examinations not only help save money on veterinary expenses in the long run, but they also help ensure your pet lives a long and healthy life.
Increasing numbers of animal diseases and disorders are treatable and can be fully cured with modern veterinary medicine. As a result of this, pets are enjoying longer, healthier, and more active lives. Twice annual head-to-tail exams provide an opportunity for early detection, which allows your veterinarian to treat and cure the disease or disorder before it becomes too advanced, more expensive to treat, or untreatable.
During the examination, your veterinarian starts at the head and examines your pet’s entire body. Unless your pet has a serious health condition or problems requiring special tests are detected, the examination will proceed rather quickly. Despite the apparent speed, please rest assured that as the examination proceeds, your veterinarian is obtaining a tremendous amount of information about the state of your pet’s health.
These periodic wellness exams are an important part of maintaining a longer and healthier life for your dog or cat, kitten or puppy, pocket pet, or senior pet. They are also a great opportunity for your veterinarian to discuss changes in your pet’s lifestyle that will help him or her live a longer, healthier life.
