Your pet’s yearly visit to the veterinarian involves much more than vaccinations. The single most important part of your pet’s visit is the physical examination. In an effort to catch disease early and prevent its progression, our doctors perform thorough examinations on your pets prior to vaccinating. Each organ system is evaluated in detail and the findings are documented to ease communication between our doctors. Because pets age so quickly, it is ideal to have your pet examined every 6 months. This may seem like a lot, but it is really equivalent to a human being having an examination every 3-4 years.
