When it comes to veterinary care and pets, it can be hard to tell when they need a trip to the doctor and when they are completely healthy and happy. Since our animals cannot verbally tell us when they’re feeling off, we have to be especially aware of the slight signals they might be sending. Sometimes it is even important for healthy pets to visit the veterinarian, and we are always happy to schedule a pet wellness care visit for your furry friend. 

Preventive Care for Stronger Wellness

Routine vet care for dogs and cats is so important because it allows us to prevent a long list of potential health issues before they even become a problem. Routine wellness checks allow us to closely monitor the following:

  • Oral health
  • Bone and muscle health
  • Skin and coat
  • Eyes, ears, and nose
  • Heart and lungs
  • Internal organs 

When you bring your pet in for regular wellness exams, our dedicated team can spot any changes in health early, which gives us plenty of time to diagnose and treat problems before they turn into big, scary issues for your beloved pets.

Healthy Pets Need to See the Vet for Vaccine Schedules

Another important reason to schedule regular wellness exams is to keep your pets on their vaccination schedule. Dogs and cats need to receive different vaccines at different times of their lives, and your veterinarian will be able to keep them on a thorough schedule when you visit at least once a year.

Wellness Care Helps Pets Age Gracefully

Our pets age much faster than we do, and it is especially important to bring them in for routine wellness visits as they get older. Senior dog and cat care suggest two wellness visits in a year. This way your veterinarian can do an exam and bloodwork to compare their current health to the baseline you’ve created with prior wellness visits. If anything looks amiss, the veterinary team will have plenty of time to determine the best cause of action to keep your pet healthy and help them live a longer life with you.
