At the Kenai Veterinary Hospital we believe that preventative care is critical for a healthy, happy, long-lived pet. Pets age faster than people and most pets are mature by age two. At 7 years of age, many pets are entering their senior years. Because cats and dogs age so rapidly, major health changes can occur in a short period of time. Many diseases can be treated if caught before irreversible damage has occurred. Therefore we recommend annual physical examinations to help us diagnose, treat or prevent problems before they become life-threatening. During these examinations we will discuss immunizations and other preventative programs. We’ll examine all of the body systems and may recommend blood and urine tests, radiographs, or other diagnostic measures to ensure early detection of disease. We also provide health examinations for interstate and international travel.
