Why do I need to visit the Vet for annual and biannual visits?
Many canine illnesses and health problems do not show symptoms until it is too late and damage to the body has occurred. Many of these health issues if detected early are easily reversible and provide the opportunity for you to have a healthy pet. Remember, old age is not a disease. Many of the health issues that plague older dogs (heart problems, kidney and liver issues, tooth loss, and arthritis are but a few of these problems), start when they are young and you have the best opportunity to stop or slow down their progression.
