Yearly wellness exams keep your animal up to date on not only vaccinations, but also allows for your veterinarian to detect a problem in its early stage, allowing these issues to be treated and resolved with less difficulty, better success, and less expense. Your veterinarian will make recommendations based on age, lifestyle and overall health.
Vaccinations, routine deworming, and preventative medicines and supplements are important components of your pets wellness care. They not only prevent life-threatening diseases, but prevent diseases that are very expensive to treat. Your veterinarian may recommend screening tests based on your animals age and specific needs to prevent certain health problems.
