A routine examination on pets that are healthy is a good preventive. Puppies and Kittens need to see a vet every 3-4 weeks until they complete all of their vaccinations. Healthy young adult cats and dogs should be seen at least annually. Senior and geriatric pets should be seen more often by a vet to help catch early signs of disease. Senior cats with chronic conditions should be seen more frequently. Your dog may get other vaccines to prevent illnesses like kennel cough, and outdoor cats should get feline leukemia vaccines. Bring in a stool sample from your pet, to have checked for intestinal parasites. Mention any changes you've seen in your pet.
