Sometimes dogs and cats will show very subtle changes in behavior when they're not feeling right—for example, slight changes in appetite, activity levels or grooming can be signs of pain.

EXAMS & PREVENTATIVE CARE
Preventative care and annual or bi-annual exams are intended to catch problems early in the process, or before they develop. Unfortunately problems cannot always be prevented. When your companion is not feeling well our goal is to make them as comfortable as possible while identifying the problem and treating them. ie: annual Exams & Vaccinations-Pharmacy
