Puppy and Kitten Exams
Like infants, puppies and kittens require a series of monthly health exams and lab work during their first 6 months of life. Our comprehensive pediatric visits include a physical exam to ensure proper development, parasitic disease screening and treatment, and vaccinations. If appropriate, we’ll begin year-round preventive medication for fleas, ticks, and heartworm parasites. At 6 months of age, we recommend spaying or neutering as well as microchipping your pet.
Adult Pet Exams (Age 1-6)
For adult dogs and cats, we recommend a yearly wellness visit consisting of a comprehensive physical exam, dental health evaluation, vaccinations, intestinal parasite evaluation, and screening for exposure to common tick diseases, heartworm disease, intestinal parasites, and others.
Senior Care (Pets Age 7 and Older)
Older pets can develop illnesses such as kidney disease, diabetes, cancer, and arthritis. The key to managing these conditions effectively is early detection and treatment. Because animals have a unique ability to hide disease and pain, we recommend that you bring in your senior pet for a physical exam at least twice a year. We also perform blood and urine tests to catch diseases in their earliest stages, allowing your pet to enjoy the longest and healthiest life possible.
