Spring is here…

It’s March-Spring is officially here. (Although it might not feel that way here in South Elgin)

You may not know that your pet’s yearly checkup is essential to their health and wellbeing. It’s as important as feeding them daily and loving them forever. It’s the best way to keep your pet healthier, longer! Remember: Pets age faster than we do, so missing even one yearly checkup can be like us not visiting a doctor for over five years!

During our veterinarian’s physical exam, your pet gets checked from tongue to teeth to toes to tail (plus all the parts in between)! This in-depth, medical checkup not only confirms your pet’s current health status, but also helps to prevent future problems, such as obesity, periodontal disease and diabetes. At this time, it also gives us the opportunity to discuss all the ways to keep your pet in good shape and answer all of your questions. We can cover any topic you want in the comfort of our exam room.

We’re grateful for your trust in us to recommend what’s best for your pet. Call us today to schedule their appointment (your pet will be thankful too). Happy Spring from all of us!
