Wellness & Preventive CareDigital Empathy2022-05-03T06:27:45+00:00
We perform a thorough physical exam on your pet during each wellness appointment. This comprehensive, nose-to-tail evaluation is one of the most important diagnostic tools we have. A subtle abnormality in your pet’s vital signs or major body systems can clue our veterinarians into a problem that requires further investigation.
Your pet’s vaccination protocol is tailored to their lifestyle and unique needs to ensure they are fully protected. By taking the time to truly know your pet and the infectious diseases they may face, our team can devise the most effective vaccination protocol for them.
Parasites, such as fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes, can cause serious disease in your pet. And, once these pests infiltrate your home, they can be extremely difficult to eradicate. We keep your pet safe from flea bite allergies, tick-borne illnesses, and heartworm disease with a wide selection of parasite preventives to suit their needs. Whether your pet does best with a topical, chewable, or injectable form of parasite prevention, we will ensure they are protected from these frustrating and often dangerous problems.
Managing a pet’s weight, or finding a nutritionally complete diet for a pet with a chronic health condition, can be challenging. Our team can provide nutrition counseling and guide you toward the optimal diet to best suit your pet’s unique needs.
A microchip is the only permanent identification form available for pets, since tags and collars can fall off or become illegible. A tiny microchip is simply implanted under your pet’s skin using a syringe and needle, much like vaccine administration. Microchip implantation does not require anesthesia, and can be performed during a routine appointment.
Painful conditions, such as osteoarthritis, can significantly affect your pet’s quality of life. However, pets are excellent at hiding pain, and can suffer silently for a long time before discomfort becomes noticeable. Our highly trained team is skilled at spotting hidden pain signals your pet may be exhibiting, and diagnosing the cause of their discomfort. Together, we can customize a multimodal pain management plan to keep your pet active and happy.
With our well-stocked in-house pharmacy, you can take your pet’s prescriptions home with you, instead of waiting for them to be filled at a busy pharmacy. By stocking our shelves with the most common veterinary pain medications, antibiotics, parasite preventives, prescription diets, and more, we can ensure your pet has what they need and you can be on your way to begin immediate treatment.
