Regular health checks help to keep your pet in tip-top condition.  It’s important that your pet receives a full health check at least once a year. To make this easy, a full health check is included as part of a pet’s annual vaccination booster.

Have you ever wondered why the vet asks you lots of questions about your pet? Do you know what the vet is looking for when they examine your pet during a consultation? Well wonder no more!

To help understand what a full health examination consists of, download our information about cat health checks and dog health checks.

Like us humans, our pets are likely to experience health issues as they get older. We advise owners of older pets to get them checked more often. Early detection of a health issue can make all the difference to your pet’s life-span. Perhaps more importantly, early detection may maintain or improve their quality of life.  For example, pain that your pet might be experiencing from arthritis can be managed making your pet more comfortable and able to participate in their normal activities. Early detection of health issues can be monitored or managed very conservatively i.e through diet. It can make all the difference to your pet with very little effort.

If you have any concerns about the health of your pet or you would like some specific advice about symptoms of concern, please call the team on 01772 639800 OR 01253 766352 or open a chat on PetsApp.
