Preventive Wellness

preventive wellnessFor millions of us, going to the doctor on an annual basis is a routine practice. We understand that by preventing disease through preventive medicine we are often able to live longer more productive lives. We are also able to lower the risk of complications from diseases such as cancer, diabetes, obesity, arthritis, heart disease and a host of other problems.

What we may not understand is that as important as preventive medicine is for humans, it is equally or more important for our animals. On average, dogs and cats age seven times faster than we do. As a result, significant health problems can occur in a short amount of time.
