Yearly exams are very important to maintain your pet’s health. Animals instinctively hide illness and rarely cry if in pain. With the history that you provide during the visit and the examination by the veterinarian, we may find illness that you may not have been aware of. Common conditions that may cause pain to your pet often without your awareness include diseases of the teeth, heart, liver and kidneys, not to mention infections and even cancer. Even young animals are subject to certain metabolic diseases that may cause distress and yet go unnoticed for a long time. Scheduling a yearly exam can help to keep your pet happy and healthy.
