Annual Physical Exams and Vaccinations

Annual Physical Exams and Vaccinations

Because pets have shorter life-spans, they age more quickly than people. Larger breed dogs typically age more quickly than cats and smaller breed dogs, and knowing when your pet reaches different life stages can help you understand their health care needs each year. Annual Physical exams can uncover early stage or congenital diseases in younger pets. As pets age, they become more susceptible to disease just like people including diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, hypo-or hyperthyroidism and cancer. Since pets, especially cats, are very good at hiding disease, annual exams can help catch diseases before they become a life-threatening illness.

At Family Pet Hospital, we are so committed to protecting your pets against infectious disease that we offer Free Vaccines for Life. Please see our program for more information on this valuable service.
