In the past, veterinarians stressed the importance of annual vaccinations for keeping pets healthy. While we still feel vaccines are important, we know now that not every pet needs every vaccine every year. What every pet DOES need is a comprehensive physical exam by a veterinarian every six months.
A comprehensive physical exam is a “nose to toes” assessment of your pet. Even pets that appear and act healthy may have medical problems that can worsen with time. Pets are designed to hide illness- it’s a survival mechanism. Finding problems early allows us to begin treatment sooner, and a physical exam is the first step in finding those problems.
The physical exam gives you and your veterinarian a large amount of information for a small price. If your pet has not had a physical examination recently, call your veterinarian today! It is truly an excellent investment in your pet’s health and happiness.
