How often should my pet see the vet?
Acton Animal Hospital offers comprehensive physical exams with our medical team to evaluate your pet’s general health and catch any potential problems early. We recommend yearly physical examinations for most pets, and twice yearly visits for our senior pets. More frequent examinations for senior pets are needed because animals age much faster than we do, so disease and illness progress much faster as well. Twice yearly examinations are similar to us visiting our physician every three years or so, and early detection of medical problems allows us to treat your pet more effectively.
These regular exams are also a good time to address any concerns about your pet’s health and behavior with your vet, as our medical team can offer experienced nutritional and behavioral counseling for your pet.
