The Importance Of Taking Your Furry Companion For A Yearly Checkup

by | Aug 23, 2023 | Blog

If you think of your pet as your best friend and family, you will want the best care concerned possible. Unfortunately, unlike the humans residing in Boca Raton, FL, pets don’t get to speak up and tell us what’s ailing them. As vets, we speak the language of cats and dogs. We understand pets, and we know the subtle signs that tell us when they’re hurt or not feeling well. At Healthy Pets Veterinary Care, we care for all our patients like they are our own.

Though we humans live well into our 70’s, 80’s, and 90’s, pets age almost six to seven times faster than us. This is why your cat or dog should be seeing a vet at least twice a year unlike the traditional once a year that humans visit the doctor. Veterinary exams are vital as they allow the veterinarian to identify diseases early and allow us to track your pet’s health with precision.

Your Pet’s Wellness Checkups

No matter when your pet should be visiting the vet, you can rely on veterinary care throughout the year—whether you live in Delray Beach, FL or the coasts of Boca Raton. With your concerns and the health of your beloved foot-footed friend in mind, Healthy Pets Veterinary Care offers affordable wellness plans for cats and dogs. Included in our wellness plans are all the physical examinations, vaccinations, bloodwork and care your cat or dog needs to maintain optimal health and happiness.

The Benefits of Regular Vet Visits

After your cat or dog has passed the age of seven, regular vet visits are even more of a necessity. Our vets at Healthy Pets Veterinary Care conduct thorough physical examinations and believe that taking care of senior pets is the best part of veterinary medicine. During examinations, we will check your pet’s skin, eyes, and coat for any irregularities as well as listen to their heart and check their teeth. Once we’ve assessed everything inside and outside, we like to talk with owners about their pet’s appetite, exercise, social life, and lifestyle.

Ultimately, veterinary visits are about both preventative care and long-term wellness for you and your four-legged loved ones. Preventative care will ensure your pet’s health and your peace of mind, and it will save you money too – it’s always cheaper to prevent then to treat!
