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.

Senior Wellness Recommendations from Your Veterinarian

Celebrating the Bond Between You and Your Pet

Our doctors recommend a wellness visit every 6 months for your senior pet. During your pet’s examination the doctor performs a head to tail exam 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 senior 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, Thyroid, FIV/FEL and a fecal.

 

Our doctors recommend that pets stay current on their Rabies vaccine annually and Distemper vaccine every 3 years.  Also, depending on the pet’s lifestyle a Feline Leukemia vaccine may be recommended.
