Monday Pet Tip: October is National Pet Wellness Month

Keeping your pet happy and healthy requires a plan developed by you and your veterinarian that focuses on your individual pet's lifestyle. Regular wellness exams for your pet are important for the same reason a yearly check up with your physician and dentist are important- detecting a problem early on means there is a greater chance of treatment being successful. Early detection and treatment often means less expense will be involved in the long run. The old adage is true, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”!

Working together as a team will help ensure that your pet is protected from injury and disease and enjoys a superior quality of life. A plan starts with routine wellness exams. Your pet's annual wellness visit is for more than just shots! While vaccines help reduce the risk of infectious disease, it takes much more to keep your pet happy and healthy. A full physical can help diagnose, prevent, and treat health problems before they become serious. Wellness exams include an evaluation of your pet’s eyes, ears, teeth, heart, lungs, joints, weight, coat, and more. During the wellness visit, you will also have the opportunity to discuss behavior issues, dietary needs, parasite prevention, and other important health issues.
