Tailored for All Life Stages
Wellness care is one of the best ways to catch and treat illnesses in their early stages, helping to prolong your pet’s life. The earlier we can make adjustments to your pet’s diet, administer supplements or start medications, the better the chance your pet has of living comfortably. Preventative care is tailored specifically to your pet, and the veterinarian’s recommendations depend upon their lifestyle, specific health needs and particulars of their breed.
We generally start seeing our youngest patients at around 2 months of age and visit with them every 3 to 4 weeks until they’re 4 months old. These visits allow for comprehensive wellness exams, fecal testing, intestinal parasite deworming, and individualized vaccination schedules.
Adult pets between 1 and 6 years of age should be seen for wellness visits at least once annually for a comprehensive physical exam, fecal testing, vaccine boosters, heartworm testing, and ongoing flea, tick, and heartworm preventatives.
Senior pets 7 years and older should be seen twice annually for their regular adult pet care as well as labwork (blood, urine, and blood parasite) to monitor health and check for common age-related illnesses.
