Our wellness programs are designed for patients 6 weeks to 6 years of age. During the first six months of their life, they will have 4 visits, all including a physical exam. At each visit the appropriate vaccines and tests will be completed as the pet's age changes. Our patients 6 months and older will have a Canine or Feline yearly once every 12 months. Each visit will include a physical exam, yearly vaccinations, and fecal.
All canine patients will have a heartworm test and ear cytology at this time. It is very important to keep your pet current on all vaccinations for the safety of you and your pets. Examining your pet once a year allows us to find and diagnose problems or diseases that may be life-threatening to your pet(s). Pets age much faster than humans. One year of their life is equal to seven years of ours. A 10-year-old dog or cat is in comparison to a 70-year-old person.
We also take this time to talk to you about heartworm prevention and flea/tick control. These visits will allow us to keep you updated on any new advances or changes in the health care of your pet. We understand your pet(s) are part of your family and we will always strive to meet and exceed your expectations when it comes to the health and happiness of your pet.

Beginning at the age of 7 years it is recommended that a pet be seen for wellness visits every 6 months. These senior pets will age more quickly and because of this, we offer a Senior Wellness Package to be done 6 months after the yearly visit that would include the following:
Physical Exam -Blood Profile Major to help detect many of the problems caused by aging. Early detection of disease allows the doctor to begin treatment sooner to keep your pet healthier as it ages.
Thyroid Test to detect hypothyroidism in your pet. Thyroid problems include weight gain, hair loss and skin problems. Thyroid problems can normally be regulated by a daily medication.
Chest X-rays to detect heart and lung disease, cancer, or any other abnormalities.
Urinalysis to detect bladder infections, diabetes, bladder stones, kidney disease, etc.
EKG in dogs to detect irregularities with the heart rate and rhythm
