Do your pets get treated like family? Do you care for them as you would your kids? I suspect the answer to both of those questions is a resounding YES! In that case, do you take your pet(s) to the vet for an annual checkup? There are so many asymptomatic illnesses that a yearly checkup is necessary. Something evil, insidious and deadly might be lurking within our precious pet. A thorough checkup might be the only way to uncover a killer.

If you are like me, you notice differences in your pet’s appearance or behavior quickly. I can even distinguish between my cats by the meow. As vigilant as I am, I don’t know everything. I do know the importance of an annual check by the vet. S/he will be able to delve deeper than the outward appearance to diagnose problems. This is especially important for older pets and the very young. If something is wrong, things can get worse quickly.

Don’t leave the health of your pet to chance. Be proactive.

Poppy is usually gregarious and a bit snarky (between naps).  Watch for behavior changes in your pet.  It could a warning sign of a health issue.
