Wellness and Vaccination Programs

Our wellness and vaccination programs are designed to promote disease prevention and to help ensure your pet lives a long and happy life with your family. Following a full physical examination and discussion regarding the activities and lifestyle of your pet, we work with you to specifically formulate a wellness program that encompasses an immunization schedule (vaccines), blood profiles, and breed specific disease screening. We believe disease prevention and early diagnosis are paramount in improving your pet’s longevity, and we strive to provide the highest quality preventative care for your furry family members.

Senior Pet Preventative Health Screen

By |

Once your dog, cat, rabbit, ferret etc…. turns 7-8 years or an earlier age, we recommend that they undergo a thorough senior wellness examination and diagnostic work-up. Even though you may believe your pet is perfectly healthy, there are many disease processes that do not show any outward sign until the disease is quite advanced. Advanced diseases can be more difficult to treat and are not always as responsive to treatment as diseases diagnosed early.

Early detection of diseases such as kidney disease, thyroid disease, etc….. will allow us to administer the appropriate treatments to help extend your pet’s life.

Many symptoms that historically have been attributed to old age are treatable with very positive results. For example, some dogs that appear to have lost their mental alertness can be returned to a mental status indicative of a younger age using appropriate therapy. Please feel free to contact us to discuss our senior wellness program in more detail.
