Wellness Care

Preventive veterinary care is the cornerstone of keeping your pet their healthiest.
Since pets age more quickly than people do, it is critical to have regular physical examinations done to assess your pet’s health. During routine preventive exams, your veterinarian will assess:
  • Overall Body Condition
  • Eyes
  • Ears
  • Nose
  • Mouth
  • Throat
  • Heart and Lungs
  • Abdominal Organs
  • Musculoskeletal System
  • Neurologic System
  • Urogenital System
  • Lymph Nodes
  • Skin/Coat

When health problems are identified, a medical plan will be outlined to evaluate the problems in depth. If your pet appears to be healthy enough for routine preventive care, your veterinarian will discuss which immunizations are advised, as well as parasite prevention including heartworm disease, intestinal parasites, and ectoparasites (fleas, ticks, etc.). Annual age-appropriate lab tests, testing for heartworm and/or tick-borne diseases, and fecal tests for parasites may also be recommended for your pet. Finally, your pet’s nutrition, diet, and exercise routines can be assessed and optimized to help your pet be in best physical condition for their lifestyle and age. Remember, keeping up with preventive care for your pet is the best way to keep your pet happy and healthy for life.

Microchipping

Why have my pet microchipped?

Most animal hospitals and shelters have the ability to scan lost pets for microchips. Once the pet’s microchip is scanned, the microchip company can quickly be reached to find out the owner’s contact information, and the pet can be safely returned immediately. Having your beloved pet microchipped can provide you with peace of mind. If they become lost, you know your chances of recovering them becomes much higher. Once you’ve had your pet microchipped, just be certain to keep your contact information updated should you move or change your phone number.
