Pet Wellness and Prevention
The best way to keep your pets healthy is to give them a healthy start! As soon as you welcome a new pet into your home, regardless of their age, it’s important to bring them in and discuss their specific needs with the veterinarian and team.
Here are a few ways we help you give your
best friend a long and happy life:
Every visit includes a thorough physical examination, during which we walk you through what we are looking at and why. We believe the more you know about your pet and their unique body, the more attuned you will be to notice any changes that may indicate a problem. Catching any changes early on means we have a better chance of avoiding bigger problems.
No two pets are exactly alike, so we create specific vaccine protocols based on your pet’s lifestyle. For instance, do they travel outside the area? Are they spending time at doggy daycare and interacting with many other animals? Appropriate vaccines will help fend off major and minor diseases such as rabies, distemper, and bordetella (kennel cough).
Small, but mighty pesky, these critters need to be kept at bay – all year long. Fleas, ticks, and mosquitos can harbor parasites that wreak havoc with your pet’s health. It’s best to not even let them get close. We’ll make recommendations for the best products and treatments to keep your pets in the clear.
Just like you have your blood checked to evaluate your overall health and organ functions, your pets need the same type of monitoring. And because they age faster than us humans, it’s important to screen for issues routinely so any change or abnormality can be addressed quickly. It is this proactive approach that can make an enormous difference in the longevity and quality of your pet’s life.
Nutrition and Weight Management
Don’t we all wish we could maintain a healthy diet and weight throughout our entire life? Well, the good news is, your pet can – with your help. Managing your pet’s weight is one of the most important elements of their care. Together, we’ll create a nutrition plan that suits them at all stages of development.
One of the easiest ways to ensure a happy reunion if your pet ever gets lost is to microchip them. We inject the device under your pet’s skin in a quick, easy, painless procedure, then provide you with instructions for setting up your account through the microchip service.
