Regular examinations keep your pet healthy. The Boston Street Animal Hospital medical team recommends that all pets undergo a complete wellness exam at least once a year. However, the more frequently your pet sees us for exams, the better – routine exams help us identify and treat diseases quickly.
Most importantly, a complete “nose-to-tail” examination allows us to develop a comprehensive health profile for your pet. This information aids us in future treatment of your pet and helps us identify medical problems at an early stage, before they develop into serious conditions that are difficult and expensive to treat.
We believe that your pet is healthier when you know more about his or her health care plan. Exams are a great time to share information with you about your pet’s health. We may ask you questions about your pet’s diet and lifestyle and we encourage you to ask any questions you may have about your pet’s health. During an exam, we discuss vaccinations, nutrition, behavior and other topics that are important for maintaining the health and well-being of your pet.
