Annual wellness examinations are recommended by veterinarians to
detect medical conditions in their early stages. When detected
early, many conditions may be less difficult and costly to diagnose
and treat. Although age itself is not a disease, it can bring
many conditions that - if diagnosed early - can be cured or managed
for extended periods of time. Routine examinations and preventative
medicine, including heartworm and flea/tick medication, can help to
maintain the health of your pet throughout its life.
Vaccinating your pet is a simple procedure that is routinely
done by veterinarians. Vaccines are safe, effective
and important to your pet's well being. Puppies and kittens are usually given
their first set of vaccinations at seven to eight weeks of age. Additional
booster vaccinations are given by your veterinarian every
three to four weeks until the puppy or kitten is about four months
of age. Adult pets will require repeat vaccinations
for the rest of their lives. The Companion Animal Hospital of Milford
will help you determine the schedule that is right for your pet.
