How Often Should My Pet Come in For a Veterinary Visit?
Because our pets age faster than us, we recommend that pets come in to Faithful Friends Veterinary Clinic for annual visits, at least. Depending on your pet’s age and health condition, more visits may be recommended. Check out our Wellness Exams & Vaccinations page to learn more!
What Should I Expect at My First Visit?
Our team wants to use your first visit to our practice to get to know you and your pet. We will take your pet’s history and gather information about them to help us understand more about their needs. If you’re new to Faithful Friends Veterinary Clinic, visit our New Clients page to access our new client form and learn more about that first visit with our team!
When is my Pet Considered a Senior?
Most pets are considered to be seniors around the age of about 7 years, but this can vary depending on their breed, size, and health status. Each senior pets’ needs may vary depending on their circumstances so we highly recommend that each pet come in for a visit to help us make specific determinations. Visit our Senior Pet Care page to learn more about what your senior pet may need.
Why Are Pest Preventives Important for My Pet?
Protecting your pet from pests is critical for their health. After all, preventing future problems is the best way to ensure ongoing health! Our pets come into contact with many more dangerous pests each day than we realize and keeping them protected in advance allows you to have peace of mind about your pet’s safety. Learn more about the importance of pest preventives and what we recommend on our parasite testing and preventives page.
Why is Dental Care so Important?
Dental health is one of the most important aspects of your pet’s overall health. A healthy mouth can preserve your pet’s health, while an unclean one can lead to all kinds of health concerns! We check your pet’s oral cavity to determine whether they need care or treatment. Our Dental Care page is a great resource to help you learn more about the importance of your pet’s oral health!
