To some of us, our pets are one of the most important things in our life. We treat them like family. Keeping our pets healthy is needed to ensure a long and happy life. This means making yearly vet appointments and updating their shots.
Why Should You Do Yearly Check-Ups?
Even if your dog appears happy and healthy the vet can find serious problems during a regular visit. Finding out something’s wrong early will help save your pet. As much as we communicate with our pets, a serious illness or disease may not be visible or even be painful early on. The average vet check-up will be relatively inexpensive to a surgery/procedure you have to pay for later down the road.
What to Expect?
At your check-up, the vet will make sure your dog is up to date on their vaccines/shots. A thorough examination of their coat will be given to see if your pet has any strange bumps, rashes, or unusual spots. Physical conditions like the pet’s weight will be looked at, as it’s important in preventing diseases with their muscles. Lastly, the vet can look for fleas and ticks and give you medication and treatments. This is important because it only takes one to cause irritation and cause an infestation on your pet and in your household.
Your yearly appointment will save you time and money, but most importantly keep your pet happy and healthy. No love compares to the love we have for our four-legged family, so act fast and act early.
