I know I'm preaching to the choir here, but bear with me. There is a great organization called 'Partners For Healthy Pets'. They offer great advice and you can find them here. They want everyone to know that annual checkups are vitally important for our pets. In fact they say that annual checkups are as essential as food and love. I was contacted by them and they asked me to remind all of you to get your pets checked by your veterinarian.
You might wonder why we go for an annual checkup when it seems like we're at the vet's office every week for something, but consider these events.
At our annual checkup which always includes a geriatric blood test for everyone, even those who aren't yet seniors, we discovered that Sebastian had pancreatitis which could be life threatening without treatment.
If your pet hasn't seen the vet recently, make an appointment soon. It could give you many happy healthy years together.
