Veterinary Wellness Care

Because prevention truly is the best medicine

One of the keys to your pet’s health is heading off medical issues or illnesses before they occur. The best way to do that is with proper wellness care, which alerts you and your veterinarian to any conditions that may be develop down the road, and helps you prevent them before they cause a problem.

All pets should have a veterinary examination at least annually. For many pets, more frequent visits may be appropriate. Decisions regarding specific frequency of visits should be made based on individual needs of the dog. Senior pets should be seen every six months. (Senior pets: Dogs = 8+ years ,  Cats = 12+ years)

In order to maintain your pet’s health, we recommend the following annual preventative healthcare:

  • Comprehensive physical exam to detect signs of disease, illness or aging concerns
  • Evaluation of behavior and diet
  • Dental assessment
  • Pain assessment
  • Body and muscle condition scoring
  • Intestinal parasite (worm testing)
  • Heartworm testing and preventative
  • Vaccinations
