Wellness exams and preventive medicine are keys to good health. Development and implementation of a plan at each stage of your pet’s life is crucial. Vaccinations, parasite control, diet consultation and basic training start puppies out on the right paw. Kittens also require vaccinations, deworming, parasite control, feline leukemia/feline immunodeficiency virus testing for best results in the growing years. Sterilization, recommended at 5 to 6 months of age, prevents many behavioral problems as well as some cancers and diseases. We firmly believe that pets are members of the family and will discuss their introduction and training in the household. Yearly exams are an important part of maintaining optimum health of an adult pet and preventing problems as they age. Your veterinarian will assess your pet’s physical condition, diet, parasite control and immunity to disease. You will be kept informed of current products and developments in veterinary medicine.
Regular checkups and early detection of disease help the mature pet live the best life possible. Heart, kidney, dental disease and arthritis pain are commonly detected aging problems. We give geriatric pets need more attention so they may maintain the best quality of life possible. X-rays or bloodwork are done to fully assess the status of your pet’s health. Our in-house blood machines allow us to get results in most cases in just one hour.
