Wellness Care

Annual wellness care is recommended for all animal companions. Wellness care is classified as yearly or twice yearly "check-ups". Vaccine appointments qualify as "wellness" appointments. Wellness care is important for your pet's overall health in order to help in early detection of a variety of conditions. After 6 years of age yearly blood work is also recommended for your pet. Seeing subtle changes in your pet's blood work can help get an early start on disease treatment and prevention. It is important to remember that animals do not live as long as people so they "age" much faster. You will find that puppies and kittens require multiple wellness exams when they are growing to keep an eye on their overall health and development.
