An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. That is our philosophy at Black River Veterinary Hospital. Annual examinations provide your pet with an opportunity to be fully evaluated by one of our veterinarians. As your pet ages our doctors may recommend bi-annual wellness visits to ensure that your pet continues to receive the medical attention necessary to support them as they age. Every annual or bi-annual examination will include a comprehensive physical examination, checking your pet’s vital signs, body condition, orthopedic health, and more. Depending on our veterinarian’s findings and their conversation with you, blood work or other diagnostics may be recommended to aid us in detecting underlying issues – remember what we said about an ounce of prevention? Annual visits to see us will ensure your pet remains as healthy as possible throughout their life. We look forward to seeing you!
