Routine check-ups

Taking your pet to the veterinary clinic is essential for routine check-ups, preventive care, and whenever your pet shows signs of illness or injury. Here are some guidelines Super Vet Pet + Clinic in Dubai recommends:



Routine Check-Ups:

  • Most pets should have an annual wellness exam. Some may require more frequent visits, especially puppies, kittens, and senior pets.

  • These visits are crucial for early detection of health issues and for keeping up with vaccinations, parasite control, and dental care.


Vaccinations:

  • Follow your veterinarian's recommended vaccination schedule. Puppies and kittens often require a series of vaccinations in their first year, followed by boosters as adults.

  • Vaccinations protect your pet from serious diseases, and their timing is critical for effectiveness.


Illness or Injury:

  • If your pet is displaying unusual behavior, symptoms of illness, or has been injured, don't wait. Contact your veterinarian or an emergency clinic immediately.

  • Common signs of illness include lethargy, loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, coughing, sneezing, difficulty breathing, limping, or any noticeable change in behavior.


Parasite Control:

  • Regularly check your pet for fleas, ticks, and signs of intestinal parasites (e.g., worms).

  • Follow your veterinarian's recommendations for preventive measures and treatments.


Dental Issues:

  • Dental problems can lead to other health issues. If your pet has bad breath, swollen gums, or difficulty eating, consult your veterinarian for a dental check-up.


Behavioral Concerns:

  • If your pet exhibits sudden or severe behavior changes, aggression, anxiety, or other behavioral issues, seek professional guidance from a veterinarian or a certified animal behaviorist.


Senior Pets:

  • Older pets may require more frequent veterinary visits (every 6 months) to monitor age-related issues like arthritis, kidney disease, or cognitive decline.


Reproductive Health:

  • If you have an intact (non-spayed/neutered) pet and are not planning to breed them, consider discussing spaying or neutering with your veterinarian.


Chronic Health Conditions:

  • If your pet has a chronic health condition like diabetes, epilepsy, or allergies, adhere to the prescribed treatment plan and attend regular follow-up appointments.


Travel and Health Certificates:

  • If you plan to travel with your pet, you may need to visit the vet to obtain health certificates and ensure your pet is up-to-date on vaccinations and treatments required for travel.


Medication or Dietary Changes:

  • If your pet is on medication or needs a change in their diet, consult your vet for guidance and monitoring.


Post-Surgery or Treatment Follow-Up:

  • After any surgical procedure or significant medical treatment, follow your veterinarian's instructions for post-operative care and attend follow-up appointments.


Always consult your veterinarian for specific guidance on when to bring your pet in for a visit, as individual needs and circumstances may vary. Regular veterinary care is essential for keeping your pet healthy and addressing any health issues promptly.
