At Apple Valley Veterinarians, we understand how important your pet’s health and quality of life is to you and your family. It’s the reason why our dedicated staff is committed to providing routine wellness exams at our convenient Plantsville Animal Hospital. A pet wellness exam is an important appointment to make for your cat or dog. Here are a few reasons why.
Top Reasons to Take Your Pet for a Routine Wellness Exam
- Prevention. Just like with humans’ lives, pets’ lives are healthier, happier, and longer when illness and diseases can be prevented before they develop. Taking your cat or dog to regular check-ups is one of the best ways to prevent the onset of common canine or feline diseases. Your veterinarian can provide vaccines, medications, and physical examinations that can detect early signs of a health problem. Should a problem be discovered, early detection is key for improving your pet’s chance of recovery and maintaining a good quality of life.
- Education. You know your pet better than anyone and our team of veterinarians is dedicated to complementing your knowledge with our clinical expertise. Wellness exams allow your veterinarian to educate you on health recommendations that are specific to your cat or dog’s breed. This is critical, since some breeds are more prone to certain diseases or illnesses than others.
- Peace of Mind. Your cat or dog’s good health is not only great news for your pet–it helps you breathe easy, too. Regular wellness exams gives you and your family the confidence that your furry friend is up-to-date on vaccinations, has an ideal bodyweight, and is being given preventative treatment for health conditions (like heartworm), which, if not prevented or caught early, can be expensive to treat and even life-threatening to your pet.
