Animals need regular medical attention in all stages of their lives in order to keep them healthy!

Annual Wellness Check-Ups

When your pet gets their annual check-up, here’s what you can expect:

First, a comprehensive physical examination will be performed. This helps us detect any health problems such as dental disease, heart disease, growths, skin conditions, areas of pain or discomfort, or orthopedic issues.

During the visit, you’ll discuss your pet’s health at home, and you’ll have the opportunity to convey anything that may be concerning to you, such as changes in behavior or appetite. We will also ask you specific questions in order to highlight common potential issues, as well as to get a better sense of your pet's lifestyle at home.

Next, your pet’s medical history will be thoroughly reviewed to ensure that all preventative treatments and vaccines are up-to-date. If your pet has a medical condition that is being monitored, bloodwork or other diagnostics may be recommended at your visit. 

Wellness Services

Annual wellness check-ups provide the chance for your pet to receive recommended diagnostic procedures and treatment in a wide range of service areas. Additional services that may be conducted during your pet’s annual veterinary check-up include:

  • intestinal parasite testing and deworming
  • heartworm/tick-borne disease testing
  • bloodwork
  • FIV/FeLV/parvovirus testing
  • testing for skin/ear infections
  • urine testing
  • fine-needle aspirates to assess for cancer
  • radiographs
  • microchipping

Wellness Check-Ups for Special Situations

Consistent wellness exams are also crucial for pets that fall into special categories, such as senior pets, puppies, and kittens.

Senior Pet Care

Older pets develop many age-related issues, such as mobility challenges, organ dysfunction, behavioral changes, and failing eyesight. Regular check-ups support the healthy aging of your beloved pet to help ensure quality of life for as long as possible. 

Puppy and Kitten Care

We recommend having your new puppy or kitten examined when they are eight weeks of age. Early examinations can reveal congenital health conditions, assess for proper growth, and gives us the opportunity to discuss diet recommendations and parasite prevention. In addition, if you’re a new pet owner, you can receive valuable advice and tips on caring for your new baby! Puppies and kittens will receive a series of vaccinations at 8, 12, and 16 weeks of age to help protect them from common diseases.
