Because pets cannot tell us how they are feeling, regular examinations are very important. Disease prevention and early detection is the best way to add years of enjoyment for you and your pet. At Streetsville Animal Hospital your pet will receive individualized recommendations based on their lifestyle, age, and any existing medical issues. All recommendations will be discussed and any questions answered before procedures are completed.
An annual examination is much more than just getting vaccinations. It is recommended to detect health problems before they become serious illnesses. It is common to detect issues with body weight that can lead to arthritis, hair coat problems, constipation and many other problems as animals age. We also detect dental issues before serious complications can arise if animals are seen on a routine basis. Annual examinations and testing allow us to monitor for small but significant health changes. It is far better to be aware and informed about the development of medical issues than to have to rush you pet to the veterinarian to deal with a severe and potentially preventable problem.
