Just like humans, it is also important to take your pet for regular check-ups to the vet. This helps early detection of health issues and helps resolve them through minimal intervention. Things like routine dental check-ups and routine scaling and polishing of teeth help lower the risk of gum diseases which especially cause problems when dogs get older. Our pets have a very high threshold for pain, so it is difficult at times to know if something is really wrong. Routine visits to the vet where they do a thorough examination helps pick up these problems before they become serious.It is with this intention that Pratapsinh Gaekwad, member of the erstwhile royal family of Baroda brought his brand Crown Vet; a veterinary care company to Kalyaninagar in Pune. The state-of-the-art clinic is known for its high quality veterinary care for pet animals.
