How often should my pet come in for a checkup?

Every pet is unique, with different concerns and problems. An annual exam, though, is the foundation of preventative veterinary care. Our doctors and staff are trained to see and hear what may not be obvious to everyone. Do you know what your dog’s lymph nodes should feel like? Have you ever felt your cat’s thyroid glands? Do you examine your pet’s mouth for dental disease? Is that lump something to worry about? A thorough physical exam by an experienced veterinarian includes these things and many others that are important in the health of your pet.
