We provide a complete wellness program for your pet to keep them happy and healthy.
Our wellness programs are designed to prevent disease and prolong the lives of your companion animals. We strive to prevent illness whenever possible. Early diagnosis of illness can lead your pet to a longer, healthier life.
Since our pets age quicker than us, regular exams are important to allow your veterinarian to evaluate your pet‘s overall health and become aware of any problems before they become serious illnesses.
Our Wellness programs include a comprehensive physical exam; internal parasite testing; heartworm and flea control; vaccination program; spay and neuter services; and specialized blood tests for all stages of life.
Vaccinations are a critical part of your pet’s preventative wellness plan. Vaccines are designed to trigger immune responses and prepare the immune system to fight future infections from disease. Vaccines provide immunity against a variety of diseases with the intent of lessening the severity of or preventing certain diseases altogether.
Experts agree that widespread use of vaccinations within the last century has prevented death and disease in millions of animals. Vaccinations protect your pet from highly contagious and deadly diseases and improve your pet’s overall quality of life.
Core vaccines are recommended for all puppies and kittens as well as adult dogs and cats with an unknown vaccination history for protection against the most commonly transmitted diseases. Non-core vaccines are optional vaccines that should be considered depending on the pet’s exposure, environment, lifestyle, age and health.
The type of vaccines and frequency of vaccinations recommended for your particular pet may vary depending on the location, age, health, and lifestyle of your pet. These factors may change over time, so we recommend your pet’s vaccination plan be discussed each year at their routine annual examination.
Spay and Neuter
We are committed to reducing pet overpopulation, but we are even more committed to keeping your pet strong and healthy for the duration of its life. Spaying (for female pets) or neutering (for male pets) is one of the best ways to keep your pet healthy and avoid unnecessary health problems now and later in life. We do our best to make these services an affordable preventative measure for our clients.
Spaying females prior to their first heat cycle nearly eliminates the risk of breast cancer. In addition, spaying also helps prevents uterine infections and uterine cancer. Neutering males prevents testicular cancer and enlargement of the prostate, and greatly reduces their risk for perianal tumors as well as reducing aggression and marking and roaming behavior. Essentially allowing your pets to be spayed or neutered will enable them to fulfill a long, healthy life.
Does your pet wear a collar and tag? What would happen if those were lost? Microchipping has become a popular and safe way to provide permanent identification that cannot be lost.
A microchip is a small electronic chip about the size of a grain of rice placed under your pet’s skin. It is injected easily with a needle similar to a vaccination needle. Each microchip is identifiable by an individualized number registered in a pet tracking database service.
It may seem like only yesterday that your pet was a playful puppy or curious kitten, but your pet’s health needs change as they age.
Just like humans, pets need to visit their doctors more often as they get older to keep them healthy.
For senior pets, prevention is important. Arthritis, skin conditions, difficulty with hearing or vision, kidney disease, diabetes, hypothyroidism, and hyperthyroidism are common among senior pets.
Routine checkups, bloodwork, and other health screenings are important as part of their routine medical care. By detecting, treating, and preventing problems before they become life threatening, we can help to extend the life of your pet. We will work with you to design treatment plans, dietary changes, and modifications to your pet’s home environment to improve the quality of life for your pet.
