HEALTHIER PET ANIMAL WELLNESS CENTER
Learn more about our veterinary services…
We believe strongly in the importance of preventive care. By catching disease in its earliest stages, or by preventing it entirely (such as through heartworm prevention) your pet will live a longer, happier life. We are committed to the health and wellbeing of pets and the families who love them!
WELLNESS AND PREVENTIVE CARE
We provide both core and optional vaccines for dogs and cats. The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) recommends that all dogs receive canine distemper, hepatitis, parvovirus, parainfluenza, and rabies vaccinations. Core vaccines for cats include feline distemper, feline calicivirus, feline herpes, and rabies. Puppies and kittens should receive their first set of vaccines by eight weeks of age. We also offer Bordetella, leptospirosis, chlamydia, feline leukemia, and Giardia vaccinations.
We recommend annual wellness exams for adult dogs and cats between one and seven years old. Puppies, kittens, and senior pets should have more frequent examinations. At each check-up, we record your pet’s weight and temperature, ask about eating habits and exercise, and discuss parasite control. Our veterinarians also check for specific health issues, such as diabetes and signs of cancer. You also have the chance to get help with any behavioral concerns.
From our state-of-the-art surgical technology to our extensive experience, we take pride in our ability to perform safe and skilled surgeries for your pet.
For pets and their owners, surgery is stressful. We want you to feel confident that your pet is in good hands during surgery. To make the process less stressful, we communicate with you at all stages and provide extensive education for preparation and aftercare.
SENIOR PET WELLNESS
Although the age at which dogs and cats are considered a senior can vary by breed, we like to start seeing pets for bi-annual exams around age seven. Like people, older pets have an increased risk of kidney disease, heart disease, cancer, diabetes, liver disease, senility, and general weakness. Staying on top of these issues helps improve the quality of life for your pet in the senior years. Mobility challenges and behavior changes are also more common with older pets.
Your pet’s oral health is a good indicator of his or her overall well-being. We check the teeth and gums at every wellness exam to look for signs of infection or other dental problems. Additionally, you can schedule an appointment for a dental cleaning under general anesthesia. Our staff works with clients to teach them proper toothbrushing techniques for an at-home routine.
