Pets are not great at communicating with us when things go wrong. They are actually very good at hiding ailments from us until it is too late. Annual wellness exams are an important way to stay ahead of problems. It is imperative to detect issues early so problems can be corrected or managed before irreversible damage occurs. In the event of an illness information recorded during prior healthy pet examinations is vital in providing the best care. Pets age much faster than we do; therefore, regular examinations are one of the best ways to help your pet live a long and healthy life.
