Did you know that keeping your pet well involves more than vaccinations? Though vaccinations remain the most important way to protect your pet against serious infectious disease such as parvo and feline distemper, in adult and senior pets there are many other health issues that can cause serious illness if left undetected or treated.
Dental disease, heart disease, ear infections and arthritis are all conditions that often develop in adult animals. In most pets they don't happen "overnight" but gradually over several months to years. A comprehensive physical exam will help identify these issues in the early stages so that appropriate treatment can be recommended to prevent a minor issue from becoming a serious emergency.
February is Wellness Month at Abilene Animal Hospital. During this month we offer all of our wellness services such as exams, vaccinations, senior blood screening, heartworm tests, and fecal exams at a discount.
