Pet Wellness Exams Keep Your Cat or Dog Healthy

You always want your pet to be in the best of health. At Cedar Bluff Animal Clinic, our veterinarians know that comprehensive examinations are the best way for us to help you keep your dog or cat in good shape. As you know, pets age much faster than people do, so we strongly recommend wellness examinations every six months.

Our veterinarians┬ácan detect problems you might not be aware of, and treating them right away can ensure that your pet’s life will be longer and healthier. Regular nose-to-tail exams allow us to keep track of what is normal for your cat or dog so that potential health problems are discovered quicker.

Regular examinations allow us to develop a good relationship with both you and your pet. We will get to know you and will take the time to share information about your observations at home and ours at the clinic.

Preventive Medicine for Your Pet

Because regular wellness examinations are so important for your pet, we will assess which vaccinations and other preventive medicines are appropriate for your pet at each visit. We always take your pet’s age and lifestyle into account when recommending:

  • Vaccines
  • Deworming
  • Heartworm medication
  • Flea and tick prevention

Your pet’s veterinarian will tailor these medications to your individual cat or dog. Because we become well acquainted with you, we can recommend some vaccines that are more appropriate for your pet’s specific needs, such as animals that travel or are boarded, or less appropriate for an older pet.

Please schedule a physical examination for your pet today. It is the best thing you can do to make sure he or she stays healthy.
