COMPREHENSIVE PREVENTITIVE CARE or WELLNESS EXAM
Because dogs and cats age, on average, about seven times faster than people, significant health changes can occur relatively quickly.
Most people don’t realize that their pet seeing the veterinarian only once a year is equivalent to a person seeing their doctor or dentist only every seven years.
The AVMA recommends preventative care exams every six months so that problems can be prevented or detected before they become life threatening.
Preventative care exams include screenings for a variety of illnesses and a risk assessment based on your pet’s environment, allowing the doctor to create a personalized prevention program for your pet.
Information about twice a year wellness exams, the pet aging process, and disease prevention is available through the National Pet Wellness Month Web site – www.NPWM.com
