Regular wellness exams are essential to protecting your pet's health.   Regular physical examinations by one of our veterinarians, together with your observations at home, allow us to best assess your pet's health.


Pets age more rapidly than humans, with each year approximately equal to five to seven human years. Therefore, pet health should be evaluated at least yearly, if not more frequently. Your pet's health status can change quickly and these exams allow us to develop an individual medical plan for your pet. 


Following a wellness exam, further diagnostic testing may be recommended.  These tests may include: age appropriate and breed specific blood work, intestinal parasite screening, heartworm and tick borne disease testing, x-rays, urinalysis (urine testing) and screening for the presence of dental disease.
