Detect Potential Issues Early
Regular checkups allow our veterinarians to detect potential issues with your pet before they become serious. During a regular checkup, we evaluate the animal’s overall health as well as their coat and skin condition. We also look for any potential signs of dental problems or other visible irregularities that can indicate an underlying issue. Regular checkups give us the opportunity to catch and address any potential problems before they become more serious.
Keep Your Pet Up To Date on Vaccines
We recommend that you bring your pet in for regular checkups so that we can give them their necessary vaccinations. This helps to protect them from potentially deadly diseases and illnesses, such as distemper or canine parvovirus. Keeping your pet’s vaccines up to date is an important part of making sure they stay healthy and safe.
Monitor Your Pet’s Weight
Regular checkups also give us the opportunity to monitor your pet’s weight. Pets can easily become overweight or obese if their diet and exercise are not closely monitored. This can lead to a wide range of health issues, such as arthritis, heart or respiratory problems, or diabetes. We help you keep an eye on your pet’s weight during their checkups and provide you with tips for maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle for them.
