Your pet's illness won' t always be obvious

Frequently asked questioins

My pet seems fine. Why should I schedule regular wellness visits?

v Looks can be deceiving. 10% of pets that appear healthy to owners and veterinarians during annual checkups are found to have hidden disease.

v Many diseases show few, if any, signs during the intial stages of infection. When signs do become visible, often it is because the infection has become serious.

v Just like with people, your cat's or dog's health change as it ages. And because pets age faster than people, major health changes can happen fast.

v Wellness testing leads to the early detection of disease. With early detection and treatment, your pet has a better chance at a positive prognosis.
