As with our own health, prevention is always better than treatment. Our goal is to keep your pet from getting sick, or discover disease processes early when they are manageable. We recommend and provide annual or biannual examinations, vaccinations, heartworm/flea/tick prevention, and routine laboratory testing including fecal parasite exams, heartworm testing, tick-born disease testing, viral testing in cats and other diagnostics depending on the animal’s age and health status.
Your Pet’s Annual Wellness Exam
Wellness examinations in pets are our opportunity to evaluate your pet’s medical history and discuss health risks associated with their activities and lifestyle. We are also able to record what is normal for your pet when they are healthy so we’ll be able to recognize differences when they are ill. Similarly, having baseline blood sample results allows us to evaluate changes over time. After discussing each pet’s situation, we can work together to formulate the appropriate vaccination schedule, diet, exercise routine, and parasite preventative. As pets’ activities, health, and needs change with time and age, it is important to review and adjust our plan to help ensure long-term wellness.
