Annual Health Checks

We recommend you have your pet's health checked annually. This can help with the early detection of any health issues.

Dogs and cats age on average, 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 cats and dogs, particularly larger breed dogs, are entering their senior years.

Because pets age so rapidly, major health changes can occur in a short amount of time. The risk of heart disease, arthritis, kidney disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity and other serious conditions all increase with age.  Early detection is important and annual health checks can help us diagnose, treat problems early, or even prevent problems before they become life threatening.

Annual health checks also offer you a great opportunity to ask us about nutrition, behaviour or any other concerns.
