Designing a General Health Care Program
Ideally, you should provide your pet with a wellness check at least once
per year. Small puppies and senior dogs have more needs than healthy
adults and twice annual exams are recommended for dogs of this age. Unless your pet is experiencing health issues or other concerns, annual
wellness checks are often enough to help your veterinarian take
excellent care of your pet. Speaking with your veterinarian can also
help you determine whether your dog needs exams more frequently due to
concerns about age, health or genetic conditions.
