Why do our pets need wellness screening?
Firstly, our pets can't speak, they cannot tell us if they feel off color or unwell or have any other indicators of internal illness. We need to examine them at least annually as well as run some routine screening tests to detect underlying disease BEFORE it is clinically apparent.
Secondly, pets will actively mask signs of illness until late in the course of disease. This stems from survival instincts in a pack or colony situation.
An annual wellness exam with your veterinarian is the best way to make sure your pet remains healthy throughout its lifetime. Healthy Pets See their Vet!
