How often should my adult dog or cat be seen by a veterinarian?
Dogs and cats should be seen at least once a year.  Dogs and cats cannot tell us if they are feeling sick.  An annual exam gives the veterinarian a chance to examine their teeth and determine if it is time for a dental cleaning.

Does my adult cat or dog need its stool examined for intestinal parasites (i.e.worms)?
Adult dogs and cats should have a microscopic stool exam performed at least once every 12 months.  Certain intestinal worms are transmissible to humans and can cause serious health problems such as loss of vision.  Children are more susceptible.  An annual stool exam gives the veterinarian an opportunity to diagnose and treat any intestinal parasites and help keep the human family safe.  If you have children, a microscopic stool exam should be performed every six months.

How often should my dog be tested for heart worm disease?
A heart worm test is usually performed every 12 months .  Dogs should be on heart worm prevention the whole year round.  Remember that their monthly heart worm preventative also prevents intestinal parasites and fleas.

What about heart worm disease in cats?
Cats that go outdoors also benefit from monthly year-round heart worm and intestinal parasite prevention.  We do not routinely test cats' blood for heart worms because their is no cure for heart worm disease in cats.  Dogs can be cured of heart worm disease if the disease is detected quickly enough.  Currently, there is not medication to cure cats of heart worm disease.
