    I am probably not the right person to reply as I am at the vets that many times I have a chair with my name on it in reception. (joke) With my previous dogs that were in good health I only used to go to the vet once a year for a check up.

    Our vet does anal glands, so every 8-10 weeks. How often do we do a full office visit, once a year, and Guinness usually gets the runs 2-3 times per year. So I'd say 6 times for two dogs is probably a decent estimate.

    Usually once a year but Gus has being going every week lately for a course of injections and will probably go for more check ups after the course finishes as he is older now. I pop to the vets once a month for medication for Pippin.

    Before the health problems it was always once a year for check up and boosters.

    Lately it's seems if I'm not there I am on the phone to them hopefully that will settle down soon

    Usually it's once or twice a year for vaccinations and an annual check up. But what with what's going on with Izzie just now she's been in every couple of weeks recently, hopefully that will decrease back down again though.

    I'm right there with you. Practically have a chair with my name on it, my 3 year old knows his way around the office, I get personalized cards from them and have there cell phone/emails for emergency contacts.

    I would say, between 3 cavaliers we are at the vet's office at least once every 3-5 weeks. Sometimes more. Sometimes it's the regular vet, sometimes it's a specialist. Sad thing is ... I do all my own vaccinations at home...so all of our vet visits are for health issues, re-checks, medication adjustments, anal glands, etc.

    My "healthy pets" (all non cavaliers) go to the vet once a year for a check-up.
