Health Checks


On average, pets age five to eight times faster than humans. By age two, most pets have already reached adulthood. At age four, many are entering middle age. By age seven, many dogs, particularly larger breeds, are entering their senior years.

Because pets age so rapidly, major health changes can occur in a short amount of time. The risk of cancer, diabetes, obesity, arthritis, heart disease and other serious conditions all increase with age. Today’s pets are also living longer than ever and many may experience a potentially serious illness during their lifetime.

Annual health checks can help your veterinarian diagnose, treat or even prevent problems before they become life-threatening. Health checks are also a great opportunity to ask us about nutrition, behaviour or any other concerns you have.

Call us today to organise a health check for your pet.
