Pet Wellness Services

An annual wellness exam is often key to detecting and preventing many health conditions in your pet.  During this exam we will also discuss vaccinations, heartworm testing, and any other appropriate laboratory testing. 

During a thorough exam, we will ask you questions about your pet's history so we can get a better insight on their daily lives.  Questions may include: 

  • Diet

  • Activity Level

  • Vaccination history

  • Surgery history

  • Changes in eating or drinking

  • Changes in elimination

  • Any pre-existing health conditions

  • How long he or she has been a part of your family and previous history

  • Thorough oral examination for any signs of dental wear, decay, pain, or irritation

  • Assess body condition, skin and hair coat condition 

  • Feel all lymph nodes for any abnormalities

  • Feel the abdomen for any lumps, bumps or uncomfortable areas

  • Examine external reproductive organs and rectum

  • Auscultation of the chest to evaluate heart and lungs

Pet Vaccinations

Thanks to advances in veterinary medicine, many common diseases can be prevented through the use of vaccinations.  Your pet is unique and that's why their vaccinations need to be individually tailored.  We develop a vaccination plan based on your pet's lifestyle, location, and other risk factors. 

If your pet is due for any vaccinations and has a top-notch physical examination, vaccines we offer include: 

Dog vaccinations:

  • Rabies
