Wellness Exams- We recommend annual
wellness exams in an effort to help maintain your pet’s current health. Pets of
all ages benefit from these exams.A
typical wellness exam includes an assessment of your pet’s major organ systems.Our team will also want to learn more about
your pet’s behavior, eating habits, and level of activity.Steps can also be taken to check for
parasites, as well as other conditions.Make sure to write down any questions you have and bring the list with
you to your next appointment.Wellness
exams are a great learning opportunity as well!
Puppy and Kitten Care-Do
you have a new pet in your family?This
is an exciting time and a very important one as well.Giving your new pet the best start possible
is very important.Schedule an appointment
today to have this new family “member” examined and learn about vaccines,
tests, and preventative measures that our health care team recommends.
Testing and Prevention- Parasites can cause serious illness and even
shorten the lifespan of your pet.When
you come in for an appointment, we will explain what we are testing for and
what types of problems certain parasites pose; such as ticks that transmit Lyme
disease, fleas that transmit tapeworms, heartworms, and various intestinal
worms. Many of these infections could go unnoticed, that is why testing and
prevention is paramount.
Counseling- It goes without saying that nutrition plays a critical role in
your pet’s overall health.Just like
you, your pet’s nutritional needs change over time.For example, whether your pet is pregnant,
aging, or has been diagnosed with a certain medical condition, diet plays a key
role in maintaining optimal health. We offer a needs assessment and nutritional
counseling that will suit your pet’s unique needs.
Microchips- Consider getting your
beloved pet implanted with a microchip.This could help to reconnect you with your pet in the event that he or
she goes missing.This safe, simple
procedure is a more reliable means of identifying your pet than a collar with
tags that could be removed.Most animal
shelters and veterinarians throughout the U.S. have electric scanners for
reading these microchips.
Preventative health care is a critical component of your pet’s
overall health and well-being.We
provide a variety of services that aim to help keep your pet's health at an
optimal level- at all ages and stages of life.
