Unless you are the parent of a talkative parrot, chances are your pet cannot vocalize what they are feeling. In addition to this, many pets have the natural defensive instinct to hide any pain or vulnerabilities they be experiencing. This is why regular veterinary exams are so important. After a thorough check and diagnostic testing, we can evaluate your pet’s health, diagnose any conditions and ensure they get the care they need. Call us today at 902.543.5602 to schedule your appointment.
How often should I take my pet to the vet?
This will vary depending on each pet. It is best to follow your doctor’s recommendations. Full examinations once per year are usually adequate for most adult pets, while twice-a-year visits are best for senior pets or newborns. Now, if your pet has a certain health condition, is healing from an injury or operation, they may need more frequent checkups.
How can you help me stay on top of my pet’s health?
We have a computerized reminder system so you do not have to remember when your pet is due for their annual Wellness Exam. We can send reminders by mail or email. Just let the front desk know which you would prefer. We strive to continue to give you the best, most personalized service that you have come to expect from our doctors and staff. Please let us know if you have any questions, concerns or feedback.
What happens if I never take my dog/cat to the vet?
That is a dangerous decision to make. Without proper and regular screenings, your pet will most likely be diagnosed with preventable diseases that can be potentially fatal. Some of these conditions can also be passed on to humans and other animals. Therefore, not taking your pet to regular exams will place the health of countless others at risk.
