Wellness and Vaccination
One of the best things you can do for your pet is to keep him or her healthy. And one of the easiest and least expensive ways to do that is by bringing in your pet for regular exams and vaccinations. Dogs and cats (and other pets) age far faster than people, so significant changes in your pet’s health can happen in a short time. Wellness plans allow us to diagnose diseases and conditions early when they’re easier to treat or manage. Often, we can help prevent diseases entirely, just by ensuring that your pet has received appropriate vaccinations and preventives. We recommend that healthy adult dogs and cats visit us once a year. Puppies, kittens, senior pets, and pets with health issues or illnesses may need more frequent checkups. Just as we should have periodic examinations to ensure our ongoing health, so should our pets. We will provide you with an examination schedule as well as a list of vaccinations your pet requires. It’s important to have these exams, vaccinations, and health screenings, even if your pet seems healthy. Some illnesses have no symptoms in the early stages but can be detected during a wellness visit. Early detection leads to early treatment, which leads to better outcomes for your pets.
