Wellness Care and Cat & Dog Vaccinations
Advanced Veterinary Care Clinic recommends you regularly bring your pet to the vet for a thorough wellness examination, and cat or dog vaccinations if needed. The health exam involves checking your pet’s systems, one at a time. This type of preventative care helps us to work with you to assure that your pet continues to enjoy good health. If there are health concerns during regular exams that could potentially cause problems, we can recommend proactive treatments.
During wellness examinations, we will take time to show you ways in which you can monitor your pet’s well being. One example might be how to check for inflammation or wax and debris build up in the ears, and how to keep them clean.
The annual checkup includes a physical exam, fecal analysis, and any cat or dog vaccinations that may be due. The veterinarian may also suggest flea and tick preventives or heartworm medicine, as needed.
As smaller pets age, they’re prone to ailments such as kidney disorders. For this reason, we recommend annual blood work beginning around 6 years of age. Early diagnosis is the key to providing effective treatment.
