Regular wellness visits allow us to evaluate your pet's general health and to identify any problems before they escalate into something more serious. Regular checkups allow us to identify problems early and correct or control developing health issues. It is sometimes difficult for pet owners to know when something is wrong, particularly with exotic pets. Count on our experience and expertise to help you prevent disease and support wellness in your pets.
Every year for a dog or cat is equivalent to about seven human years. Therefore, it is important that your pets receive a wellness exam at least annually, and more often in their senior years.
Let's take a closer look at what you can expect at during a periodic wellness visit for your dog or cat.
Wellness for Exotic Pets & Birds
It can be difficult to recognize sickness in exotic pets and birds. Many illnesses result from inadequate husbandry, often due to inappropriate diet. Pet shops, where many birds and exotic pets are obtained, do not always provide adequate or proper care guidelines.
During the wellness visit, we teach you how to best care for your unique pet. This support significantly reduces the risk of illness and increases longevity. Ask for our animal care sheets for your pet's species, follow the suggestions, and enjoy a long and happy relationship with your exotic pet.
