Annual or bi-annual wellness exams are important throughout your pet’s life. Frequent exams are important for puppies and kittens, so we can monitor their growth and development, and begin important preventive care. As pets age, they become more likely to develop conditions such as dental disease, arthritis, and heart murmurs, which may go unnoticed at home. Early detection of aging changes and disease make management of these conditions easier and more successful.
Preventative care ensures the best for your pet!
Preventive care focuses on preventing illness, rather than treating it, by protecting your pet from known threats like parasites and infectious diseases. Preventive care also includes routine testing to monitor for early disease signs. At each wellness visit, we’ll discuss individualized preventive care recommendations for your pet, which may include:
Routine blood work and urinalysis
Heartworm testing and prevention
Intestinal parasite screening and prevention
Tick-borne disease screening
Flea and tick prevention
We offer a full range of vaccinations to protect your pet from dangerous diseases. For optimal protection, puppies and kittens should begin their vaccine series at 6 to 8 weeks of age, and return for boosters every three to four weeks until they are more than 16 weeks old. Adult pets need boosters every one to three years, depending on the vaccine. Vaccine schedules are highly customizable, depending on your pet’s species, age, and lifestyle. We’ll work with you to determine which vaccinations your pet needs to provide the best possible protection.
Determining your pet’s nutritional needs and navigating the complex pet food market can be a difficult task. Your pet’s nutritional needs change throughout their lifetime, and problems such as obesity and nutritional deficiencies are on the rise. If you have questions about your pet’s diet or nutrition, just ask! We offer nutritional counseling that can help you choose the right food for your pet’s specific needs.
Losing a pet is a terrible experience, but microchipping can help ensure their safe return. Microchips are approximately the size of a rice grain, and can be implanted quickly during a routine office visit. In the event your lost pet is found, the microchip can be scanned to access your contact information for a fast return. We can microchip your pet at any time, and we recommend this service for all pets.
