The focus of a preventive care program is to ensure that your pet is receiving everything they need to live a healthy life including proper nutrition, good hygiene and adequate stimulation, as well as early detection of any illness or disease that may be developing. In the fight against various diseases, early detection makes a significant difference in the scope and effectiveness of treatment. Most diseases are much easier to treat in the early stages, while some diseases can reach a point where treatment is no longer an option. And, unfortunately, pets are so good at hiding signs and symptoms of disease that by the time symptoms become obvious, it may be too late. Therefore, regular exams are critically important.
A semiannual wellness exam should be performed by your veterinarian every six months. The physical exam is a comprehensive assessment of your pet’s health. Your veterinarian will review various aspects of your pet’s health, including:
Based on the findings, your veterinarian will discuss any concerns, make recommendations and work with you to keep your pet as healthy as possible.
