Prevention of Illness It is our mission to provide the highest quality medical care for your pets and to provide you with the best information and most compassionate guidance available.
Twice for life--twice yearly physical examinations Recent research has shown that twice yearly medical examinations of pets are beneficial to both the pets and their owners. The main reason for this is that pets age much more rapidly than humans. For dogs and cats this means one pet year equals roughly 7 human years. Doctor visits for your pet every 6 months would be like humans getting a check up every 3.5 years.
As you are aware, many pets will hide their illnesses or they may have problems that are not immediately apparent. Twice yearly exams will allow us a better opportunity to catch disease processes early. Ideally, we will have a better chance of preventing these processes before they become life threatening. Seeing your pet twice yearly will allow us to take better care of your pet. This in turn will allow us to achieve our practice goal: healthy pets living to 20 years of age. We know how much your pet means to you as part of your family and we will do everything within our power to enhance the quality and length of time you have together.
