Dr. Silva stresses that pet parents must take their pets to the doctor annually for wellness checks.

Sara Ochoa, DVM, a veterinarian at The Animal Hospital of West Monroe in Louisiana, advises fasting before surgery and providing a stool sample for checkups.

This can include medical records , your pet's immunization list , diet, exercise, behavior, and any queries you have.
