Are you thankful for your furry friend?

Show your pet how much you care. Schedule your pet’s yearly checkup today!

What are you most thankful for this Thanksgiving? Your furry companions? Of course!

You may not know that your pet’s yearly checkup is essential to their health and well-being. It’s as important as feeding them daily and loving them forever. It’s the best way to keep your pet healthier, longer!

During our veterinarian’s physical exam, your pet gets checked from tongue to teeth to toes to tail (plus all the parts in between)! This in-depth, medical checkup not only confirms your pet’s current health status, but also helps to prevent future problems, such as obesity, periodontal disease, thyroid disease, diabetes, etc. At this time, it also gives us the opportunity to discuss all the ways to keep your pet in good shape and answer all of your questions. We can cover any topic you want in the comfort of our exam room.

We’re grateful for your trust in us to recommend what’s best for your pet. And what‘s best for them today is an annual checkup. Call us today to schedule their appointment (your pet will be thankful too).

Happy Thanksgiving from our family to your family!
