Pet comprehensive exam
Pets can’t or won’t always let you know if there’s a change in their health. And changes can occur any time, often without any obvious visual signs. If you only bring your pet in to the vet when you notice something is wrong, it’s a risky approach – because you won’t always be able to notice when something first goes wrong.
3 reasons to see your Banfield team regularly
We love your pets. LOVE them! So of course we want them to be happy and healthy and playing and wagging and purring and enjoying life. Which is exactly why we recommend regular checkups.
- Successful disease screening allows for earlier intervention and potentially a better prognosis for your pet. The sooner we find a problem, the less damage it’s done before we start to treat it.
- Many breeds are predisposed to common diseases, so comprehensive examinations twice a year and routine diagnostics can help catch these problems early, when they’re easier to treat. Pets' lifespans are much shorter than ours, they age faster, so we need to look sooner to find these medical issues before they hurt your pet.
- Prescreening for certain diseases also gives your veterinarian a baseline of your pet’s current health status to work from as your pet ages. Each pet is different, so a baseline helps us understand your pet’s individual “normal.”
