Adult Wellness Report

Register or Login to complete your Pet Wellness Report.

You know your pet best and your insights can provide us with important lifestyle information. Our hospital uses an online questionnaire called a Pet Wellness Report. This information is utilized by our Veterinarians to customize the care that your pet receives during their wellness visit.

When you schedule your pet’s wellness visit, the Client Care Specialist will email you a Pet Wellness code to get started. The entire process takes approximately 5 minutes to complete and allows us to focus on the issues that are important to you and your pet.

Adult Wellness Recommendations from Your Veterinarian

Celebrating the Bond Between You and Your Pet

Our doctors recommend an adult wellness visit once a year. During your pet’s examination the doctor performs a nose to tail examination looking at your pet’s eyes, mouth and listening to their heart and lungs.

Heartworm and flea & tick prevention year round are an important part of keeping your pet healthy.  Fleas can come into our pet’s environment even if they do not go outside.  Heartworm prevention is also key to maintaining your pet’s health.

Your adult pet may look healthy on the outside but having your pet’s blood work performed on a regular basis helps the doctors detect and protect your pet from common diseases.  The blood work includes a CBC, Chemistry, Urinalysis, Fecal and Accuplex.

Our doctors recommend that pets stay current on their Rabies and Distemper vaccines every 3 years and Lyme and Leptospirosis every year.  If your pet is around other pets at dog parks, day care, boarding or grooming facilities we recommend they be vaccinated for Bordetella and Canine Influenza.
