What are Pet Annual Exams?


It is important for pets to have regular checkups their entire lives. However,  different checkups and tests may be needed. A veterinarian can recommend what tests should be performed when bringing your pet in for their annual exam. These may include a complete blood count, urinalysis, and thyroid testing. Finally, regular dental checks and cleaning have become more important for both dogs and cats.

Why are Pet Annual Exams Important?

Everything from the type of food a pet eats to how much exercise is needed will likely change as the animal ages. There are also certain conditions that a pet is more susceptible to. A few conditions include vision and hearing loss, arthritis, kidney disease, and certain types of cancer. The pet may need special supplements if hairballs increasingly become a problem. Many older dogs may begin to experience joint pain and increased incontinence. For these reasons, senior pet care is critical. Senior pet care would include regular visits with a veterinarian and ensuring all vaccinations remain current.
