We love our pets, but sometimes we forget that they have many of the same needs as we do. So be honest, do you take your pet to the vet as often as you go to the doctor? Pets can get sick with things like heart disease or cancer just like we can. Also like us, the likelihood of having a disease raises as a pet gets older. This is why it’s important to take your pets to the vet at least once per year (if not more) to catch any diseases while they can still be treated. Veterinary bills may be expensive but saving money isn’t worth it when it comes to a family member’s health.

The Golden Retriever and his guardian in this video were so happy when they found out that he wasn’t sick with cancer. But the diagnosis could’ve been different if his guardian didn’t get him checked out. Do the right thing, and make sure your pets see the doctor often even if nothing seems to be wrong with them! It could end up saving their life.
