Just like our own annual medical check-ups, an annual preventive care exam allows us to evaluate your pets’ health status and to detect any problems. This is especially important for pets, as one “pet year” can be the equivalent of five to seven “human years”. Can you imagine only seeing your doctor every seven years? Early detection and diagnosis of a health problem can help your pet live a longer and healthier life especially as many illnesses show very gradual changes in your pet.
At your pet’s annual preventive care exam, your veterinarian will review your pet’s history, lifestyle, behaviour and diet, and ask about any changes that you have noted. A complete physical exam will be performed and any abnormalities found will be discussed. If your pet requires any vaccines, they will be administered at this time.
Village Veterinary Clinic offers a variety of veterinary services for your companion, including nutrition information, vaccinations, spay and neuter procedures, and parasite control.
