Whether your pet is a youngster, a “senior citizen,” or any
age in between, wellness examinations provide an excellent
opportunity for us to conduct a thorough physical exam of
your pet. A wellness exam includes an evaluation of all of
your pet’s major organ systems. We’ll ask you questions
about your pet’s behavior, appetite, exercise habits, and
regular activities at home.
This is also an excellent time for us to discuss any routine
diagnostic testing or to recommend any vaccines that may be
due. A wellness examination can also help detect early signs of
illness and address health issues before they progress. It allows
us to note any changes that may not be evident at home.
Additionally, we also offer free nail trimmings with any exam
or anesthesia procedure.
We prefer that you are present during your pet’s wellness exam so that we can address your questions or concerns about your pet. We promise, no question is too small or too silly, and it is our pleasure to address your concerns. As a caregiver to your pet, we strive to build a comfortable, trusting partnership with you.
Free First Exam for Shelter or Rescue Pets
All new pets that are recently adopted from a shelter, rescue or non-profit group receive a free first exam. Ask us for details when you call to make your appointment.
Just like their human friends, pets today can live longer, healthier lives than ever before. This is in part because of vaccines that help protect them from deadly infectious diseases. We can tailor your pet's vaccines to meet your pet's lifestyle and take into consideration any concurrent conditions or previous reactions to vaccinations. Some of our pet owners prefer to have titer blood testing done for distemper and parvovirus prior to administering a vaccine. Although vaccine programs have been highly successful and vaccines are considered routine today, we (as caregivers) and you (as pet parents) cannot afford to become complacent about keeping pets up-to-date on their vaccinations.
Puppy and Kitten Care
Do you have a new puppy or kitten? Congratulations on this addition to your family! One of the first things you should do when you bring your new pet home is to introduce him or her to us – your veterinary care team. Your puppy or kitten visit will include a full “nose-to-tail” physical examination. We will look for any signs of illness and make sure that your new pet is in good health. We’ll also discuss your new pet’s recommended vaccine schedule and the best plan for parasite testing, treatment and prevention.
We welcome your questions and look forward to addressing any concerns you may have. Please call today to schedule an appointment for us to meet your newest family member!
