Once a year, you should take your pet in for a checkup.
This will include a full physical exam, vaccines, and parasite testing. Ideally, your pet’s teeth should be cleaned annually as well. We can schedule these services within a few weeks of each other for your convenience. Our doctors will check the health of your pet from head to tail, and you will be very happy you came to The KAAWS Clinic for service.
Ensure any medical history and vaccine records you have of your pet is delivered to the clinic prior to your appointment. It’s best to keep a journal of your pet’s health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts. If you have something like this, share it with our team. If not, let us know everything that you think will be important. Our doctors can still work with whatever information you have.
In some circumstances, we will refer you to a general practice specialist who has advanced expertise in areas such as internal medicine or surgery.
