Buck Lake Animal Hospital would like to remind you that our pets often age the equivalent of seven human years each calendar year. Many changes in dogs and cats can occur in a relatively short amount of time, making annual visits very important for the health of your pet. Yearly visits can uncover medication needs, dental issues, and early onset of age-related diseases. Prevention or early discovery of problems can greatly increase the quality and length of life in dogs and cats. Our doctors recommend yearly exams in order to provide the best preventative care for the life of your pet.
