Preventive Care

Wellness Exams

As your pet's caregiver, it is your job to do whatever it takes to help that furry little guy or gal enjoy as many happy, healthy years as possible. We consider it an honor to partner with you in this endeavor. We place a strong emphasis on wellness and preventive medicine. We want to see to it that you and your loved one get to share as many years of healthy companionship as possible!

Helping your four-legged friend achieve a lifetime of good health involves much more than just bringing them in when they are sick or have become injured. In fact, without ongoing care on a consistent basis - like every 6 months to a year - your loved one could be harboring a dangerous secret that will potentially go undetected until it's too late. Regular wellness exams allow our experienced doctors to identify and address potential health concerns before they have a chance to develop into a more serious and costly problem.

Along with this early detection, preventive health care is the easiest and most effective way to give your best friend every opportunity to live a long, healthy, and happy life. Throughout your companion's lifetime, he or she will encounter a great number of dangers and risks - some of which could potentially even shorten your loved one's life. With regular wellness visits, we are able to take preventive measures, like vaccinations, health screenings and nutritional planning to help protect your pet and keep them fit and healthy, from birth through the senior years.

At each of your pet's wellness visits, the veterinarian will perform a complete nose-to-tail examination. The doctor will thoroughly check your pet's ears, eyes, mouth and teeth, heart and lung sounds, skin, as well as joints and muscles. Certain laboratory screenings may be recommended during your pet's wellness visit, including parasite testing, heartworm and tick disease screening, urinalysis and a wellness blood profile. Each of these tests provide our doctors with a clearer picture of your companion's overall health and helps to identify areas that need to be addressed.
