Preventive care, or a general wellness visit, is a proactive approach to healthcare. Just like changing the oil in your car can prevent additional problems, regular check-ups with your veterinarian for your pet can catch problems early or prevent them altogether. Depending on the age and health of your pet, your veterinarian may even create a customized plan of preventive care which is tailored to your pet’s specific needs.

Regular check-ups are also important because your pet can’t tell you when it doesn’t feel well. Unlike humans, animals hide pain, so there may not be any outward signs that something is wrong. Regular check-ups allow you to be sure that your pet is in good health.


The Pennsylvania Veterinary Foundation (PVF) serves as the charitable arm of the Pennsylvania Veterinary Medical Association but functions as an independent Pennsylvania nonprofit corporation and is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization.

The mission of PVF is to help veterinarians create a healthier future for animals and you through funding veterinary student scholarships and supporting animal welfare initiatives such as veterinary student scholarships, The Last Chance Fund (TLC), Zoey's Fund, and Henry's Cupboard.
