Wellness Exams in Central Maine: Keeping Your Pet Healthy, Year After Year
Your pet’s health is the most important thing they have (next to you and your family). At Animal Medical Clinic in Skowhegan, ME, we understand that keeping your pet healthy is a lifelong commitment. This is why pet wellness care plays a central role in their ongoing care. Yearly checkups, tailored vaccinations, and routine lab tests help to ensure that all your pet’s essential needs are being met to the fullest extent.
No matter what stage of life your pet is at, we want to make their future the healthiest it can be.
Why We Recommend Yearly Wellness Exams for Dogs and Cats
First, pets age much more rapidly than humans, which means their health can change just as quickly. With yearly wellness visits, we can establish a health baseline and see if your pet's condition has changed dramatically since their last visit.
By recommending preventative measures such as vaccinations and parasite control, your pet can avoid many health issues and live a longer, more comfortable life.
What About Senior Pets?
We enjoy caring for our senior patients and helping them retain some pep in their step. We’re well attuned to the needs of senior and geriatric pets, who are more fragile and prone to disease. Often, we like to see them more frequently so we can monitor their condition closely and ensure that they continue to lead a healthy, pain-free life. Dogs and cats alike can experience arthritis, diabetes, vision and hearing loss, and other age-related issues that also affect humans.
We can't wait to meet you and your pet!
