Annual Wellness Check-up

Our annual pet check-up takes a minimum of 30 minutes. We will make a thorough assessment of your pet’s weight, mouth, ears, heart, lungs, temperature, attitude, awareness, gait and general appearance including the condition of its skin and coat.

The wellness check-up may also include vaccinations, deworming, nail trims, ear cleanings, and expression of anal glands. We will go over any nutritional and behavioral questions, or any other concerns that you may wish to discuss.  If required, we would be happy to assist you in finding proper training, pet sitting or kenneling facilities.

Please bring a fecal sample to your pet’s annual wellness exam so that we can check for internal parasites.

Vaccinations

We follow the recommendations outlined by: The American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) and the American Association of Feline Practitioners (AAFP). These recommendations are based on the pets’ geographic location, age and lifestyle.

Puppy and kitten vaccines are administered at approximately 8, 12 and 16 weeks of age. These are guidelines and they may vary depending on breed and other circumstances. Some breeds may require a further splitting out of their vaccines.

A vaccine schedule appropriate for your pet will be discussed with you during your first visit. After the final vaccine, your pet will visit annually for their wellness assessment and any required shots.
