We stress the importance of annual wellness exams for your pet(s) now that some vaccination protocols have changed. Pets cannot tell us how they feel, so by performing their annual physical exam we can check their eyes, skin, teeth, ears, respiratory and skeletal neural systems, lymph nodes, and mucous membranes to ensure they are healthy. We recommend annual blood screens to ensure all is well on the “”inside””also. These tests can unmask diseases or disorders before they become severe and life threatening. These results can also provide an important benchmark for the future care of your pet.
