Ask-A-VCC Vet: How critical is your pet’s wellness exam?
“It’s easy for owners to miss subtle changes that can be more obvious to medical professionals that don’t see the pet every day,” Dr. Jennifer Ramsey of our Merriam Veterinary Care Center says. A yearly exam helps ensure common issues like ear infections, dental disease and weight problems are caught early.
The same goes for your cat, too!
“Cats are particularly good about hiding illness until the disease is advanced,” Dr. Ramsey warns. She says regular visits can help identify issues with your cat when they are cheapest to treat.
