Now that winter is in full swing, we all find ourselves spending more time trapped indoors. As pet owners, the time can be easy because our furry friends are always waiting for us to share the couch while we are waiting for the thaw. It’s a time of year we find ourselves feeling grateful that these four legged family members have adopted us and are always willing to entertain.
We all want the best for our pets and all pets come with special care instructions: feed daily, love forever and schedule yearly checkups. We know you have the first two covered, but what about the last one? Yearly checkups are equally as important. They are essential to your furry friend’s happiness and well-being. “Preventive care is the best way to find illness or other problems early,” Dr. Christopher Angiello, Co-Owner of Hudson Animal Hospital in New York City states, “Annual check-ups are the first step to keeping your pet healthier and living longer.”
During our veterinarian’s physical exam at Hudson Animal Hospital in NYC, your pet gets checked from tongue and teeth to coat and tail. Our in-depth, medical checkup not only assesses your pet’s current health status, but also helps to prevent future problems, such as obesity, periodontal disease and diabetes. It also provides us with the opportunity to discuss all the ways to keep your pal in good shape and to answer your questions. We can cover any topic you want in the comfort of our exam room.
If you are already a patient call our office at 212-706-4088 to schedule and appointment with one of our veterinarians. If you are in the Upper West Side and need a new veterinarian, we would be happy to add you to our family. Call our office to schedule an initial appointment and to save time, fill out our New Patient Form online.
We wish you all a fun winter. Stay safe and warm.
