Have you ever asked your vet that question? Do you ever say, ” I just want him to have his shots , nothing else.” Our job as veterinarians is to help your pet live the longest , healthiest life possible. I answer questions like……… ” are those cataracts? why are my dogs ears so itchy? why does my dog clear his throat all the time? why does my dog have gas? and many more questions that have simple answers. Most of these answers can be given during a physical examination. At our clinic we don’t mind the questions. We will take the time to answer all your questions. Our pets age so much faster than us and their time with us is precious. So go ahead, schedule that annual exam and if you pet is over 7 years old schedule an exam every 6 months. Early detection, diagnosis and treatment is everything !
