Our committment is to provide the most complete care for your companion. Wellness exams are recommended at least once every 12 months for animals 7 years of age and younger and every 6 months for animals over the age of 7. Wellness exams are very important to maintaining the health of your loved one and preventing diseases. Preventative medicine focuses on preventing infectious diseases such as Parvo, Distemper, Kennel Cough, intestinal parasites, and heartworm disease. In addition, routine physical exams allow your pet to be screened for common aging diseases such as osteoarthritis, gingivitis/periodontal disease, organ dysfunction/failure, and endocrine/hormonal changes.
Complete physical examinations are conducted at each vist to assess all of the body systems thoroughly. Along with information about your pets nutrition, environment, changes in appetite/drinking/activity level, and any other symptoms observed by you, we will recommend a treatment plan tailored individually for your pet. At different life stages, this may include vaccinations, heartworm testing, fecal testing for intestinal parasites, screening for organ dysfunction or endocrine/hormone changes, or x-rays to evaluate for osteoarthritis.
