One thing our pets cannot always do is let us know when they are sick. That's why regular visits to the veterinarian are so important. During a check-up, your veterinarian will often take your pet's weight and temperature along with asking you any questions about your animal's behavior and diet. The doctor may also check the ears, eyes, mouth, skin, and coat for any problems. In some cases, blood and stool samples may be taken to test for parasites and disease. Certain vaccinations and medications may also be given to your pet to protect against illness. It is important to take your pet for check-ups at least once a year. Don't be afraid to ask your veterinarian for any information regarding your pet. Ask your veterinarian about proper nutrition as well and what to do to prevent potential problems. Check-ups are good for both the animal and its owner. The more you know, the better you can properly care for your pet. For more information on your pet's routine check-ups, contact a veterinarian.
