Pet Exams in Covington, GA
When your pet is happy and healthy, you’re happy, too--and so are we! At Hometown Vets, we want to know how your pet is doing between visits. And nothing makes us happier than seeing them for their annual or semiannual checkup to make sure they’re thriving. With regular pet exams and preventative care, dogs and cats have the chance to live longer and have a better quality of life. Keeping them well and giving you proper guidance regarding your pet’s care are our highest priorities.
How Routine Exams can Benefit Your Pet
Dogs and cats grow up and get older just like their humans do, and as they age, what they’ll need to stay healthy will change right along with them. Puppies and kittens need a different healthcare plan than adult and senior pets, and vice versa.
Here are some of the reasons why we recommend seeing your pet at least once a year for a full exam:
- Your vet will be able to chart your pet’s health and medical history from one year to the next, and we can use this information to guide our treatment plans
- You and your pet will build a stronger, more trusting relationship with your vet
- Our team will be in a position to better detect subtle, underlying health issues in your pet
- Your pet will get the care they need to be healthy and stay healthy longer
