How often should I take my dog to the vet?

by | Sep 6, 2022 | Dog Health, KC: Pet Health

New dog owners often ask when and how many times they should take their dog to the vet.

The simple answer is: IT DEPENDS

The biggest factor to determine how many times to schedule a visit to the vet for your dog is your dog’s age.
From puppies to senior dogs the answer may vary.

A good rule of thumb is to think about it just like humans. Young ones visit more often than adults, but as you grow older to senior age your doctor visits increase.
Keep in mind if you are worried about the cost of vet services, preventative care can keep your dog healthier and save you money, in the long run, helping avoid emergency and advanced care costs.

There are also considerations for the breed and environmental conditions. Always consult with a veterinarian to determine what is best for your dog.


Did you know there are DNA kits for dogs? If you ever wondered if your dog is purebred or a descendant of a regal breed you can find out with a simple test kit.
