Kinard Animal Hospital is dedicated to providing the best possible care for your beloved pet.
How often should my pet have an exam and blood work?
The number of exams and blood tests will vary by age and condition of the pet at Kinard Animal Hospital. Puppies and kittens must be initially vaccinated with follow-up with boosters after two weeks. Spaying or neutering is also recommended on any pet not used for breeding purposes. As pets mature, yearly visits are recommended and twice-yearly visits for our senior pets. Blood work is needed before every surgery to help determine if an animal is healthy enough for the procedure. Yearly blood work is recommended after that to assist in diagnosing the early onset of disease.
