Preventative care is crucial to maintaining your pets health. 

 

Dogs and cats age much faster than humans. We recommend having your pet examined at least once a year. An exam allows us to assess health externally. But, there are diseases that can only be identified internally through preventive blood testing.  A few reasons for preventative testing are:
