Did you know your pet ages about seven times faster than you do?
That’s why we recommend that all pets have a wellness check every 6 to 12 months, depending on their lifestyle and needs. Wellness exams are a key component of maintaining your pet’s quality of life. Early detection of problems or disease increases the chances of successful intervention and treatment. Regular wellness exams are one of the best things you can do to be proactive in your pet’s health and make sure he lives a longer, healthier, and happier life.
