3 Questions You Should Ask Your Vet During Your Annual Appointment
Unsure what to ask when you come in for your pet’s annual exam? Aside from the common wonder: “What age should I spay and neuter in Rio Rancho?” there are a few other important questions you should ask your veterinarian.
What (And How Much) Should I Feed My Pet?
The vast number of pet foods on the market can be overwhelming. We can advise whether a novel protein diet, overweight management, or any other formula is right for your dog or cat. It’s also important to clarify exactly how much your pet should receive to ensure that they don’t lose or gain weight unnecessarily.
Is My Pet in Pain?
Dogs and cats are known to be very stoic creatures; even if they are in pain, they won’t show it. Osteoarthritis is a joint disease that commonly affects pets. Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t just impact the old; young animals can suffer from osteoarthritis too. Ask us if your pet could benefit from a joint supplement or even a prescription medication to address discomfort of any kind.
What Common Ailments Should I Be Aware of?
Depending on your pet’s species, age, or breed, there can be a long list of common illnesses to keep an eye out for. Your veterinarian can advise you on typical signs of concern or recommend routine diagnostics to screen for disease.
Questions are likely to come up between annual exams. If you have any urgent concerns, feel free to call and speak with one of our experienced staff members.
