Regular Veterinary Care - A Vital Part of Your Relationship with Your Pet
Your cat or dog counts on you for much more than food, shelter and a scratch behind the ears each day. Owning a pet also means being responsible for its health and well being, and that can be a challenge for even the most avid animal lover. Pets that are sick or injured can't tell you what's wrong, and your own powers of observation can take you just so far. Unless you're an expert it's difficult to know whether a seemingly minor sign, such as listlessness or loss of appetite, can be ignored safely or calls for immediate attention.
Luckily, when it comes to maintaining your pet's health, you don't have to go it alone. Your veterinarian is there to provide the expertise needed to diagnose, treat, and prevent diseases and help your pet lead a long, active life.
So the best advice is to schedule regular visits for check-ups and immunizations that protect your pet from serious diseases. Also, be sure to see your veterinarian at the first sign of a health problem. Your dog or cat depends on you for the best care, and you can depend on your veterinarian to keep your pet in peak health.
