Do you have a good vet for your dog?
How often do you visit him?
Many pet parents do not consider vet visits a priority. Although they may visit the vet when their puppy/dog requires vaccinations, they may ignore the six-monthly visits recommended by the vet!
If our pet is lively and active, we believe that he is healthy, and visit the vet is unnecessary. But this approach can prove to be quite costly for your pet’s health. This is because, although on the face of it everything might seem fine, a minor problem might be growing into something substantial.
It is said, “Prevention is better than cure.” This is true for pets as well! If your pet is examined periodically it will remain healthy for longer!
Here’s why you need to take your dog to the vet every six months?
1. Regular Check-ups Prevent Diseases
When you visit the vet every six months, he examines your pet thoroughly. He can detect any minor/major health issues your pet might be facing and resolve them.
2. Vets Recommend Dietary Changes
The frequency of meals and the nutritive needs of dogs change as they grow. A pet parent needs to ensure that the dog is neither overfed nor underfed. When you visit a veterinary doctor, he will guide you regarding the diet and best food for your dog.
3. Care of Oral Health
Dental health and oral hygiene are two very important factors that many pet parents ignore. Six-monthly visits to the vet will take care of the oral health of your pet as well.
4. Spaying and Neutering
Spaying a female dog and neutering a male dog are highly recommended to prevent several health issues and behavioral problems. The right age for spaying/neutering depends on the health of the dog besides its age. If you visit your vet every six months, he will be in a better position to suggest the best time for spaying/neutering.
5. Flea and Tick Removal
Six monthly visits to the vet also help keep the growth of fleas and ticks on the coat of the dog in check. The initial infestation of fleas/ticks does not bother your pet dog too much and may go unnoticed. However, when they multiply and grow rapidly, it can cause a lot of discomfort for your pet. When you visit the vet every six months, he will be able to check for fleas and ticks and suggest treatment for it.
