October is National Pet Wellness Month. This purpose of this awareness campaign is to help pet owners understand the importance of preventive care. Visiting Noonday Veterinary Center once a year when your pet is not sick or injured gives Dr. Morris the opportunity to check for unknown health issues, follow-up on previous treatment plans, and monitor her weight, growth, and behavior. We recommend bi-annual preventive care exams for senior pets due to their changing health needs. If you have a puppy or kitten, Dr. Morris will discuss the preferred vaccine and exam schedule at her first appointment.
