Regular Wellness Checkups Are Important to Your Pet’s Health

wellness-and-preventive-care

Your pet brings joy and love to your life and home. In return, you can positively impact your pet’s longevity and quality of life by providing them with excellent home care, safety, and by scheduling regular checkups with the exceptional staff at Wellesley-Natick Veterinary Hospital. These regular wellness exams allow us to provide preventive care and any needed diagnostic care.

The Value of Prevention

Because a pet’s lifespan is compressed into a shorter amount of time than that of a human, significant changes can occur in your pet’s body even in the course of a year. Regular exams detect physical problems before they become serious. Routine wellness and preventive appointments allow us to catch problems that could become serious, painful, and expensive.

Seeing your pet when they are feeling well allows us to get to know them better, enabling us to have an understanding of what is normal or baseline for your pet. It’s a great feeling to walk out of an annual exam with a clean bill of health. That is our hope for you and your pet!

We wish to see our senior patients twice a year. Puppies and kittens should be seen within days of arrival, since they are vulnerable to disease.
