At Capeside Animal Hospital, we believe in preventative care for your pet. Early detection of health problems can allow for prompt treatment. Your pet should receive a comprehensive physical exam at least once a year and geriatric, or older pets (pets 7 years or older), should have a physical exam twice yearly. Since the average pet's lifespan is significantly shorter than ours, their health can change very quickly within just a few months.
Vaccines are also an important component of a preventative health plan. Recent studies have shown that some vaccines are lasting longer than one year. Your pet's age and lifestyle will be used to tailor a vaccination protocol based on your pet's risk for certain diseases. We will be sure to send you a reminder when vaccines are due.
