Wellness Exams

Because pets can't tell us how they feel, we recommend a complete physical examination at least once a year, though exams every 6 months are encouraged. The veterinary exam allows us to develop a picture of your pet's overall health as well as to spot potential issues before they become too advanced. As your partner in your pet’s health, we welcome questions about your pet's health, habits and daily care.
