Regular Examinations

We strongly encourage annual exams, as well as semi-annual exams for some of our aging population. As a matter of survival, animals often do not show outward early signs of disease. A regular physical examination is invaluable in that it allows early diagnosis and assessment of health problems. This gives us a wider selection of treatment options and often an improved long-term outcome for your pet.
