4 Reasons Why Your Pet Should Get an Annual Exam by a Vet

Source:  All Pet News / May 05, 2014

Because your dog or cat can’t communicate to you when he isn’t feeling well, and because animals are sometimes able to mask symptoms of illness until a disease is advanced, an annual exam conducted by your veterinarian is an important part of maintaining the health and happiness of your pet.

Below are four important reasons why you should have your pet examined annually.

Catching a Disease in the Early Stages

Through physical examination and tests, such as blood tests, your veterinarian will be able to target a disease in its early stages, when it is easier to treat. Many illnesses in both canines and felines will not result in obvious symptoms until they are advanced. Catching a disease earlier rather than later, though, can ensure your pet will get appropriate treatments to get him well again or at least keep the disease from progressing and making your pet sicker. Plus, an annual exam will give your vet data throughout your pet’s life that will help him in gauging what is normal for your pet and what is out of the ordinary. All of this information, along with a thorough physical exam of the body, will help your vet properly diagnose your pet and, ultimately, save you time and money if it results in recognizing a disease early on.
