Bringing your pet into the clinic for regular veterinary exams is the best way to monitor your pet’s health and prevent illness. At Clinique Vétérinaire Beaubien, we know how important annual checkups are because they help make sure your pet lives a long and healthy life.
What does a checkup involve?
A veterinary exam involves a physical examination from nose to tail. We’ll check your pet’s eyes, ears, heart, skin and teeth for anything out of the ordinary. We’ll also make sure your pet receives any booster shots they might be due for. It’s the perfect time for you to ask questions and share any concerns. Your veterinarian may recommend further testing, such as blood tests or X-rays, if needed.
How often should my pet get a checkup?
For healthy pets, we recommend an annual vet exam. For geriatric pets or animals with health problems, we generally recommend more frequent visits so we can monitor their health more closely.
