A Reminder to Check on Your Pets…It’s National Pet Wellness Month!

It's important for dogs and cats to get wellness exams at least once a year.

If you have a furry companion at home you already know they’re a part of your family and you want them to be around for as many years as possible. That’s why October is National Pet Wellness Month. It’s to promote the importance of pet health and wellness all year long. Dogs and cats age five to seven times faster than people…that means an annual visit to the veterinarian is like us seeing a doctor every five to seven years. It’s important for dogs and cats to get wellness exams at least once a year. So, let this serve as a reminder to make sure your pet is up to date on all their check ups and vaccinations and if you want to go the extra mile, you could even donate to an animal welfare organization or volunteer a few hours at a rescue or pet clinic.
