Your pet deserves high quality healthcare in a clean, modern facility, and you deserve value and service. Bluestar Pet Hospital & Grooming has a veterinary team devoted to excellence in care . . . to pets and their people. We strive to live up to that promise every day, with each patient and pet owner interaction.
It is an excellent idea to schedule an annual checkup for your pet. This comprehensive nose-to-tail physical examination can detect potential problems early – when the condition may be treated most economically, with least discomfort for the animal, and with the best possible outcome. A checkup may also reveal the need for preventive steps to avoid future health problems.
Just like their human owners, pets can suffer painful dental issues from decay and neglect. Even the best companion animals may not cooperate with home dental care. An annual professional cleaning keeps your pet’s mouth healthy and breath fresh.
What can you do to assist in effective checkups? Keep a log of your pet’s:
- Surgeries, medical procedures, and treatments
- Elimination habits, including urinary marking
- Changes in physical appearance
- New behaviors and mood shifts
- Modifications to diet or daily routine
Bring this medical journal to your pet’s veterinary appointment. Though the details may seem inconsequential, they give the doctor helpful insight. The information also brings a new veterinarian up to speed quickly, should you move and need to change practices.
