Routine annual check-ups usually consist of:
- a comprehensive physical examination
- heartworm test
- fecal exam (checking for parasites) and deworming as needed
- vaccines (or titer testing)
- senior wellness plans
We all know that preventing disease or catching it in its early stages is far better than treating it once it has had time to progress to a more severe stage. Preventive health care on a regular basis will help you do just that, and save you and your pet from needless suffering and a larger financial burden.
Just as annual physical exams are recommended for humans, they are recommended for our pets as well. If your dog is older or has medical problems, he may need even more frequent examinations. A year is a long time in a dog's or cat's life. Assuming our pets will live to their early teens, receiving a yearly exam means they will only have about thirteen exams in a lifetime. That is not very many when you think about it.
Annual exams along with appropriate vaccinations, heartworm testing, parasite control, and recommended blood testing in older animals, will help your dog or cat live a happier and longer life.
