The importance of wellness visits for your pet
animal health
Just as with human medicine, the importance of preventative care and wellness medicine for our pets cannot be over emphasized. There is a common misconception that annual veterinary visits are primarily for vaccinations. While vaccines are a foundational and essential part of the preventative care plan, they are not necessarily the most important aspect of the health, longevity and quality of life of your pet. Over the years, there has been an active movement within the veterinary profession to change the terminology and emphasis from annual vaccine appointments to annual wellness visits.
