Focus on Wellness and your pet

This quarter we are focusing on wellness and your pet.  What exactly does this mean?  Every pet should have an annual wellness exam, vaccines, fecal and heartworm test, and bloodwork.  This may seem like a lot, however our pets age much quicker than humans.  It is important for us to have our pet checked annually to keep them happy and healthy!

Wondering what we do during a wellness appointment?  First we want to check their stool for possible parasites and a blood sample for heartworms.  The veterinarian will then do a full physical that includes checking eyes, ears, nose, and mouth.  They will also feel joints, listen to the heart and lungs, and ask if you have any concerns.

Vaccines should also be done annually to protect your pet from diseases such as distemper, parvovirus, Para influenza, hepatitis, leptospirosis, bordetella, coronavirus, rhinotracheitis, calici virus, and panleukopenia, and rabies.  These can be deadly to your pet or cause serious harm.

Finally, we also recommend doing a bloodwork panel on your pet annually.  What does this tell us?  Bloodwork can tell us all about how each internal organ is functioning, if their blood count is in normal range, and can detect early signs of many different diseases.  Even if your pet is young it is good to have a baseline in case your pet gets sick later in life.
