Why is a Routine Vet Visit So Important?

Why is a Routine Vet Visit So ImportantYou wouldn’t disregard your own health checkups, so why should your pet? Routine veterinarian visits are one way to monitor your pet’s health.

A routine veterinarian visit can help maintain your pet’s overall health as well as monitor their diet, exercise, and supplementation.

Your pet is a member of your family.

We believe that your pet is a family member. When something is wrong, you can trust our team to diagnose the problem and make treatment recommendations – not just a prescription for antibiotics or expensive surgery.

Our team will become acquainted with your pet and be able to provide customized advice as well as treatment recommendations based on recent medical history and ongoing health concerns.


Dogs and cats should receive all necessary vaccinations as soon as possible following their initial vaccination. Our clinic strives to provide affordable immunizations and other preventive services.


If your pet is at risk due to the environment in which he or she spends the majority of his or her time (for example, a backyard dog who spends part of the day outside), heartworm testing is also recommended.

Diet and Exercise

During your pet’s routine visit, our team can ensure your pet is within a healthy range. We can also discuss your pet’s diet and lifestyle. Routine exercise and weight management can help prevent certain health conditions, like heart disease and cancer.

Prevention is key to your pet’s wellbeing.

The most important component of everyday pet care is prevention. Even if your pet is healthy, you should keep an eye out for health issues and address them promptly.

However, if your pet is unwell, starting treatment immediately will prevent their condition from worsening. Our veterinarians can create a treatment plan that is best for your pet’s symptoms.

A routine veterinarian visit is an important part of keeping your pet healthy and happy. Proper health maintenance enables you to spend more time caring for your pet, and there are numerous options for determining how frequently you should bring them in for an examination.

We can assist you in maintaining your pet’s optimal health! For more information please contact The Animal Hospital of Sussex County today.
