Why Dogs and Cats Need Yearly Wellness Exams

Dogs and cats age about 6-7 years for every human year, which means their health can change very quickly! Pets are not aware of health hazards like we are and without adequate protection, they can easily develop an infection or come down with a virus. Examining them at least once a year means we can establish a baseline, make note of any differences in their condition, and suggest treatments to improve their quality of life.

Our Primary Disease and Parasite Concerns

Ticks are one of the biggest threats facing dogs and cats in the Montgomery area. As tiny as they are, ticks can spread various diseases, including:

  • Lyme disease
  • Anaplasmosis
  • Ehrlichiosis

In addition to tick-borne diseases, pets are also at risk for:

  • Heartworm disease
  • Roundworms, whipworms, hookworms, and tapeworms

While we can provide treatment for tick-borne diseases, heartworm disease (in dogs), and intestinal parasites, prevention remains the best medicine for every pet. Parasite preventatives offer valuable protection against infestations and life-threatening illness.

Tailored Wellness Care for Every Age Group

Whether your pet is in their prime or peacefully living out their golden years, we can give them a personalized wellness plan. We recognize pets as the individuals they are, and work with their families to see that they receive the best, most age-appropriate care possible.

  • For puppies and kittens, we offer deworming treatments and administer their initial vaccine boosters. Puppy and kitten visits often take longer as we have much to discuss with their owners about their care, from nutrition to house training.
  • Adult dogs and cats require maintenance-based care which focuses on keeping them at their healthiest and preparing them for their senior stage of life.
  • Senior pets are vulnerable to disease, including arthritis, diabetes, and kidney disease. We recommend more frequent visits to monitor your pet’s condition and see if any changes to their care need to be made.
