Why Annual and Semiannual Exams are Important

When they feel unwell, dogs and cats are more likely to try to conceal their discomfort. This makes it difficult for you to notice anything unusual, and symptoms may not become apparent until your pet’s condition has worsened. To keep an eye on your pet’s health and catch potential problems early enough that they can be treated easily, we recommend annual or semiannual exams.

Healthy dogs and cats should see our team once a year for their checkup, and senior pets, or pets with chronic illness, should see us on a semiannual basis if possible.
