Regular veterinary exams are important for all pets to live long, healthy & happy lives! Our veterinarians recommend all pets, even indoor cats and pets that appear healthy, have an annual exam each year (twice a year for senior pets) to help us help you identify problems before they become serious.
We realize coming to the veterinarian can be stressful on your pets (and you). Here are tips to help make your next visit easier on you and your pet:
· Kennel/Crate - Introduce your pet to a crate or kennel before it comes time to travel to the vet.
· Practice sessions. Call ahead to our vet clinic to find out when there is a quiet time to visit. During the visit, your pet can calmly walk around the building and exam room. Use treats and positive praise with your pet as you tour around.
· Distractions. Bring your pet’s favorite treats/toys to give them something positive to focus on during the visit.
· Come hungry – Pets will be more receptive to treats given at our vet clinic if hungry.
