Dogs and cats are very good at hiding their problems. Often, they will only show small changes in their behaviour, but there may be a big problem underneath. Getting a regular check-up from your veterinarian and their veterinary health team is important in maintaining your pets health.
Annual examinations are a good start to prevent many health issues. Talk to your veterinarian about the appropriateness of a fecal examination, blood or urine testing, dental examinations, and vaccinations. All of these things can help keep your pet happy and healthy!
