Wellness appointments are a critical component of developing your animal’s complete healthcare plan. This recommended annual “check-up” includes a comprehensive physical exam and is the perfect time to ask your veterinarian any questions you have regarding routine dentistry, nutrition, exercise, general housing and management, vaccine recommendations, de-worming strategies, basic soundness concerns, body condition, general screening bloodwork, etc. If you have horses, this is also a great time to stock up on important medications that all horse-owners should have on hand, including Bute, Banamine, wound ointments and electrolytes.
