The best medicine for keeping our pets happy and healthy involves a preventative approach. Preventative medicine involves education on a wide variety of issues relevant to your pet including: nutrition, behaviour, dental care, spaying and neutering, among others. It also includes guidelines for nutrition, dental care, parasite control, kitten and puppy socialization, specific care for senior pets, and annual vaccinations catering to your pet’s lifestyle. An annual wellness exam is extremely important to assess all of your pet’s body systems and to discuss any questions or concerns with your veterinarian. Many times health problems that go undetected can become more serious when left untreated, so Wellness Exams are important even when your pet appears healthy.
