How Many Times A Year Should You Take Your Dog To The Vet?

dogkissSometimes we get so involved with our new puppy, buying new dog toys, choosing dog food etc. we sometimes forget about his visits to the vet. How many times a year should you take your dog to the vet? Even though a new puppy may be up to date on his shots and may even be spayed or neutered, it’s a good idea to take him to the vet a few days after you take him home. All healthy dogs should visit the vet at least once a year, twice is advisable. Older dogs should visit the vet every six months or even more frequently.  This gives the vet an opportunity to examine your dog and make sure that he’s healthy.

Before selecting a vet, ask about emergency services. It’s important that your vet be accessible in an emergency. There are many animal hospitals that offer 24/7 care and emergency service for your pet. Don’t neglect taking your pet in for checkups even if you suspect that something may be wrong. You’ll regret it if you wait and find out that it’s too late. Also don’t let money hold you back. I know vets are expensive but would you neglect a family members health because of money? Absolutely not!  Your pet is your family and should not be neglected either.

Remember, pets are family!
