Every pet should have a through physical exam at least once a year. Discussion of diet, activity, behavior, and physical changes may reveal an animal's disease or aging processes. Vaccination decisions are made based on individual lifestyle risks. Frequency of examinations may change depending on age and underlying illness. Most diseases are much easier to treat or control if they are diagnosed early. Diagnostics such as lab work and x-rays may be indicated based on the examination.
