Wellness

We recommend that your pets receive a veterinary examination once yearly. Your pets age more quickly than humans and their size and breed influence this age. A yearly exam will allow us to review your pet's recent history, lifestyle, daily activities, diet, and behavior.

The physical examination includes a dental assessment, pain assessment, and body condition scoring. We will then make a specific and detailed plan for your pet. Some recommendations

that may be given are:

 

 

  • Appropriate diagnostic test, including an annual heartworm blood test and testing for intestinal parasites

  • Year-round broad-spectrum parasite prevention/control, including protesction against heartworms, intestinal parasites, ticks

  • Dental care (both home care and dental cleaning

  • Thereapeutic management of medical conditions

  • Nutrition

  • Behavior

  • Vaccinations

We will determine the vaccines that are most appropriate for your pet. It is important that vaccines are started between 6-8 weeks of age. Other preventative health strategies we may suggest include:

  • Microchipping

  • Spaying or Neutering

  • Early disease screening tests (blood and urine samples)

  • Nutrition

  • Behavior

  • Vaccinations

  • Dental Care
