Every dog needs an annual veterinary checkup. Wheaten researchers recommend owners take their Wheaten to the vet for annual health testing even if the dog is happy, exuberant, and shows no signs of illness. All dogs hide pain associated with disease and instinctually hide pain from their owners. Many illnesses don’t present symptoms until they are quite advanced.
Early diagnosis and treatment can prolong your dog’s quality of life and even the length of life in many cases.
