Vaccinations are the gateway to your pet living a healthy life! During the course of your pet’s life, he or she will be exposed to many viruses, parasites, or bacteria. Many of these can be prevented with routine examinations, preventive medicine, and vaccines.
Wellness exam screening of pets begin with you, the “pet parent.” As with your own children, annual physical examinations are essential for the long term well-being of all your pets. Remember, your furry family members age at a much faster rate, making yearly exams very important.
For Puppies and Kittens
For puppies and kittens, we recommend several visits for wellness exams and vaccination boosters in the first few months of ownership, usually 3 to 4 weeks apart. This allows us to prevent many diseases or treat diseases in the early stages, before they become life threatening or cause long term problems.
Geriatric pets require more frequent exams, which can help maximize your aging pet’s quality of life, as well as extending it. This is done through early detection of many common geriatric problems such as: arthritis, endocrine and metabolic problems, dental health, heart disease, liver disease, kidney disease, and eye problems. Medical changes can occur suddenly and without advance warning in pets of all ages; but occur more commonly in our senior citizens. These changes often surprise owners who wish they had been prepared or able to prevent the problems associated with pet aging.
Wellness testing can help catch many conditions before they become serious illnesses.
Be sure to ask one of our knowledgeable veterinarians about which tests your pet may need during his or her next wellness exam. If your pet is exhibiting any signs or behaviors which are unusual, including weight loss, consult our animal hospital as soon as possible.
Our state-of-the-art hospital features a full laboratory, digital radiology, ultrasonography, the most commprehensive vaccines available, and a staff that is dedicated to providing the best care possible for your pet.
Our doctors and staff understand that not all pets are able to come to the office and that fear and anxiety are greatly reduced by examining a pet in its home environment. Therefore, we routinely go to our clients’ homes and perform exams.
