Calling the vet out if you suspect your pet is unwell is a great idea! But did you know that we recommend having your pet checked over every six months even if you don’t think there is anything wrong?
Sometimes the early signs of disease are very subtle and easy to miss. But with a thorough clinical exam will be detected. With any disease the earlier we know about it the better! It means we can start treatment sooner, and if your pet is in pain with it we can alleviate this as soon as possible.
These visits are also great to have a chat about general husbandry, weight checks, preventative medicine for parasites and over all wellbeing. Dr Katie is here to help and wants to keep your pet in the best health possible!
“PPMV is a service you can trust. You know your most treasured pet is in good hands from the moment you make that call. You get a personal touch and Katie spends a lot of time with you getting to know you and your pet. My little timid dog is much better due to being treated in his own environment. And you can text at any time and she will respond. I would definitely recommend PPMV.”
