Health Checks

Regular health checks are an essential part of every pet's life.  Because your pets age five to eight times faster than humans, major changes in their health can occur in a short amount of time. The risk of your pet developing disease, such as heart disease, diabetes, or dental disease, increases as they age, and with the veterinary care available today, they live for longer.  Since many of these diseases show few if any signs at home in the early stages, your pet needs regular veterinary checks to ensure they are in optimal health.  Having a full health check for your pet every 6-12 months will allow you and your vet to diagnose, treat, or even prevent disease so your pet is kept in their best health.

These regular checks are also a great opportunity for you to be able to ask your veterinarian any questions you may have about your pet's nutrition, behaviour or any other issues.

Call today to book a health check for your pet with one of our vets.
