The Importance Of A Healthy And Happy Pet

It’s important to get your annual or biannual veterinary checkups for your pet, but have you ever wondered why? Maybe you’ve shrugged off the appointment, thinking these exams don’t really matter, that your pet seems to be healthy enough. If your cat or dog seems friendly and behaved, then that’s good enough right?

Overall pet wellness is immensely important, and the health of pets is something of a puzzle. Pets have schedules just like humans down, and regular wellness exams are paramount to their longevity and livelihood. Pet health and wellness is much more than getting shots or getting their biannual checkup. When your friendly local veterinarian regularly sees your pet, that builds a camaraderie and understanding with the animal that allows them to foresee medical issues, prevent diseases, and properly update their medications.

Wellness care is necessary for all animals, and your veterinarian is trained to examine your pet in a way that you are not. Your Paoli Vetcare doctor checks everything from teeth to hygiene to exercise to nutrition, and compares their health today to their health yesterday to properly figure out how their health might be tomorrow. By getting these regular examinations, your pets will be less likely to have emergencies down the road.
