We recommend all pets be examined twice a year in order to prevent/detect medical problems. Pets age faster than we do and as a result, health problems can progress much more rapidly. Regular wellness examinations will confirm that your pet is healthy or help catch problems before they can become more serious. Your pet's semi-annual veterinary visit will include some, if not all of the following: a health consultation, blood work, a physical examination, pain assessment, nutritional counseling, vaccinations if necessary, an intestinal parasite screening and a recommendation for an on-going wellness routine.
Diet and nutrition are also important to maintaining your pet's health. Feeding your pet a specially formulated diet to meet the needs of adulthood helps encourage a long and healthy life. Please feel free to consult your veterinarian to help you find the right food to fit with your pet's lifestyle, body condition and health needs.
We will assess your pet’s comfort level and address any concerns about pain. Even younger cats and dogs can experience chronic pain due to joint disease (osteoarthritis, hip dysplasia, luxating patellas, cruciate (ACL) disease) and dental disease.
