Pet Health 101: Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital Explains The Importance of Annual Checkups, Ewa, Hawaii

Loving your four-legged family member means doing everything you can to ensure his or her health and well-being. One of the most important things you can do in regards to pet health is paying yearly visits to your veterinarian. The compassionate, animal-loving staff at Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital in Waipahu, HI, can’t emphasize the importance of annual checkups enough, and offers three excellent reasons to schedule a vet visit today:

  • Preventative Measure: Taking your pet to visit this outstanding veterinary hospital on a yearly basis prevents health problems or potential health problems from worsening. Rather than skipping annual checkups and bringing your furry family member in when he or she is gravely ill, save yourself the expense by scheduling annual checkups.
  • Comprehensive: Yearly check-ups are comprehensive in nature and include examinations of the skin and coat, teeth, eyes, nose, mouth, heart, and weight. Such exams also include checking for parasites and anything else causing harm.
  • Questions & Concerns: Your annual veterinary hospital visit is also the ideal time to alleviate any concerns and ask questions about pet health, diet, behavior, and much more.


Be sure to monitor pet health in between visits, and see your Waipahu veterinarian if you notice problems such as changes in weight or behavior, excessive thirst, bad breath, cough, changes in eating habits, lumps and bumps, fatigue, and vomiting. Changes in litter box deposits and habits are also reason to give the veterinary hospital a call.

Help your four-legged friend live a long and healthy life at your side! Schedule your annual vet visit today. For more on pet health and animal care, contact Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital. Call (808) 671-7387, visit the website, or check them out on Facebook.
