When it comes to your furry friend, you naturally want them to be healthy, happy and able to enjoy their life for as long as possible. The key to this is preventative healthcare – making sure your pet is examined by one of our professional vets on a regular basis. This ensures that any problems that may occur are spotted early and can be treated before they develop into potentially serious conditions.
If your pet is very young, it’s best that you bring them to see us for a health check every month until they are six months old; after this we can give them a check-up every six months. This is particularly important whilst they’re young so we can monitor their development during a period when they’re not only growing fast, but are also vulnerable to particular diseases that affect young animals.
During a health check your pet will be examined from nose to tail. One of our friendly vets will look over their eyes, ears, mouth and teeth, skin, coat, paws and tail, as well as listening to their heart and lungs and feeling their abdomen to check for any abnormal lumps or bumps. Your pet will receive lots of fuss and attention.
You’ll also be able to ask your vet any questions that you have about your pet’s health, including any changes you might have noticed in their behaviour or appearance.
