Wellness & Preventative Care
A full physical assessment is performed on every patient, addressing body condition, neurological status, cardiovascular health, gastrointestinal health, ears, eyes, skin, teeth, and any other concerns you may have.
For new puppies and kittens we recommend 3 monthly vaccinations at 8, 12, and 16 weeks of age, as well as de-worming. As needed from 1 year of age on we advise they come in once a year for an annual check-up and vaccines. Rabies vaccinations are given every 1 to 3 years as deemed necessary as per lifestyle and temperament.
We set up a safe and effective preventative protocol for your pet for fleas, ticks, heartworm, and intestinal parasites, as well as wellness diagnostic panels for early disease detection.
In veterinary medicine, conditions arise that simply cannot be seen or detected on an external assessment. This is why diagnostics are so important. These tools allow us to see beneath the surface to identify, diagnose and treat a number of medical conditions. Veterinary diagnostics include laboratory assessments, as well as more complex diagnostics, such as x-rays, to aid in determining the source your pet’s discomfort and illness.

Dental disease is among the most common medical conditions affecting cats and dogs today. If left untreated, dental disease, also called periodontal disease, can contribute to damage of vital organs, including the heart, liver and kidneys. This can be prevented with routine dental veterinary services, as well as instructions in proper oral health hygiene at home.
Our staff is happy to discuss preventative care to ensure your pet has a happy healthy mouth.
