Pets are among the most unselfish creatures on earth. They love us freely and unconditionally. They provide us with their unwavering commitment and undying loyalty, asking nothing in return other than to simply be cared for. It’s our job, as loving pet parents, to do everything within our power to extend and improve the quality of life of our four-legged friends. The best way to achieve this is through a commitment to ongoing wellness care.
These annual or semi-annual visits allow us to do three important things. First, they allow our doctors to monitor your companion’s current health. At each visit, we’ll conduct a thorough physical exam, and may also run a series of diagnostic tests, all of which will give us a clear picture of how your pet is feeling. We’ll also take preventative measures, such as vaccinations and nutritional counseling, to help keep your pet fit and healthy, and protect them against the many risks and dangers that they will encounter over the years.
The second important part of wellness care is that it allows us to manage your loved one’s health over time. When we are able to examine and evaluate your pet on a regular basis, we are able to identify potential medical concerns and address them right away – before they have a chance to develop into a more serious and costly problem. It’s always easier to address an illness in its earliest stages than it is to treat it after it’s progressed.
Finally, routine wellness visits provide the perfect opportunity for us to get to know one another, and for your pet to develop a sense of trust with our team. We believe that establishing solid relationships is the most important aspect of veterinary care, and regular visits allow us to do just that. The better we get to know you and understand the unique needs of your companion, the more precise and effective a health care plan we can develop.
Why wellness care? Simply put: disease prevention and early detection can add years to your pet’s life and improve the quality of those years tremendously. Don’t wait until your pet is sick to bring them in to see us. Give them the gift of a lifetime of good health by making a commitment to wellness care.
