On Pets and New Year Resolutions: Regular Checkups

Even the most responsible pet owner has, at one point in time, failed to comply with regular checkups required by their pet’s vet.

 This year, if you’ve been careless in looking into your pet’s general health and well-being, consider adding regular trips to the vet as part of your ward’s New Year resolution.

The Value of Regular Checkups – Talking about the upsides and benefits of regularly bringing one’s pet to the vet can be described as pointless, considering how readily explainable the act is: with regular checkups, pet owners are given real time information about the health and well-being of their pets.

Though “regular” is a highly relative term, responsible pet owners should take the time in proactively bringing their pets to the vet on regular intervals, not only when they are showing signs of being sick or after they succumb to injuries.

Doing so does not only help pets get accustomed to trips and visits to veterinary clinics, but also helps them get acquainted with their health-care professionals.

The move also affords pet owners with relevant and timely information covering their pet’s health and dietary needs, apart from giving them insight on the different danger signs of stress, fatigue and more.

Pet owners whose wards are known to have genetic disorders can also greatly benefit from regular checkups, giving them a “heads up” on what to expect regarding gene-related joint issues, eye problems, teeth and gum disorders and more.

Bottom line, if you missed out in bringing your pet to his or her regular checkup sessions, there’s no reason you can’t regularly do so this year.
