We all want our pets to live happily in good health through to their golden years. Yet getting them to that point takes some work on our part! Pet wellness care helps keep diseases, chronic conditions, and injury at bay. With wellness exams for pets, we can catch problems early and give your pet the best chance at a quick and full recovery. At our animal hospital in Kettering, we provide comprehensive preventive care that keeps your pet healthy and happy so you can enjoy more quality time with them.
What Our Pet Wellness Exams Entail
At a pet wellness exam, we’ll start by talking to you and asking if you have any particular concerns about your pet’s health and behavior. We’ll address any questions you have and then complete a comprehensive exam that includes:
- A full nose-to-tail physical exam
- Fecal test to check for intestinal parasites
- Deworming treatment if needed
- Diagnostic blood work
- Preventive prescription medication
We’ll also make sure you’re keeping up with your pet’s parasite preventatives. Regular parasite prevention is an important part of pet wellness care. Pests are more than annoying! Fleas, ticks, and mosquitos can cause severe discomfort as well as many life-threatening diseases. Keeping these critters away from your pet preserves their health from these dangerous diseases.
Complete Care for Every Unique Pet
Pet wellness care changes with a lot of factors including your pet’s age, breed, size, and health status. We take all of these considerations into account when designing a care plan for them. Each cat and dog requires different kinds of care, yet it can vary significantly between breeds too. For instance, larger breed dogs are often predisposed to hip dysplasia, while smaller breeds are predisposed to luxating patella (knees). Additionally, larger breeds dogs reach senior status more quickly! All of these factors play a role in your pet’s care.
