The best approach to ensuring the longest, healthiest life for your pet is to bring them in for routine wellness visits. Our veterinarians in Wimberley, TX recommend biannual (every 6 months) checkups for dogs and annual checkups for healthy adult cats. If your pet is a senior and/or living with a chronic condition, we may advise biannual checkups each year to stay on top of their care.
We make these recommendations because pets age quickly and rarely show clinical signs of illness until the illness has advanced. Seeing your vet regularly allows them to make note of any changes in your companion and catch sight of potential problems at the earliest possible stage. In short, pet wellness exams are proactive and can help your dog or cat avoid many health issues!
