The A.V.M.A (American Veterinary Medical Association) endorses 2 veterinarian visits per year for companion animals – one for urinalysis and bloods work and one visit for vaccines. The visit frequency is suggested due to the rate at which our pets age. Pets age an average of 7 years for each 1 human year. Your pet’s health can change quickly over a one year period, making it more difficult to prevent, detect and treat conditions early. Ensure your pet’s health and your peace of mind by scheduling your pet for semi-annual visits.
