Annual Exams are important for pets too!

As we welcome in 2011 now is a good time to make sure your pets are up to date on vaccines and check when their next annual exam is due. Regardless of age all pets should see a veterinarian every year for an exam. At this appointment we will perform a complete physical exam that includes:

• Evaluating your pet’s teeth to look for dental disease
• Listening for a heart murmur which could indicate underlying heart disease
• Assessing weight and body condition
• Manipulating joints to check for arthritis
