A Lifetime of Good Health with Pet Wellness Care
Modern veterinary medicine has lengthened the lives and furthered the well being of our beloved pets. However, our skilled veterinarians work best in partnership with YOU! Bringing your young, adult, or senior pet in for routine pet wellness care is the first step in that partnership. Furthermore, our friendly team is happy to advise you on all aspects of your pet's care, including nutritional and behavioral. So, if it's been a while since your four-legged friend has had a nose-to-tail examination, don't hesitate -- book them at our animal hospital in Miramar today!
Checking in through the First Year
Pets under a year old are still growing strong and developing immunities making the first year an important foundation for good health. Puppies and kittens are particularly vulnerable to intestinal parasites, so we need to run tests and deworm if necessary. Ideally, we administer vaccines around six to eight weeks with boosters to follow. As a new pet owner, you must also think about spay and neuter surgery, as well as adequate training and nutrition.
Keeping an Adult Pet Healthy
For much of your pet's life, they will be in their adult years. Though this time is considered prime, you can keep it that way with annual health checks. A full nose-to-tail examination alerts our doctors to potential concerns and allows us to run any needed tests. The annual exam is also a great time for questions on your pet's behavior, nutrition, or general state of health. Furthermore, preventive care is less costly than treating advanced conditions.
Visiting Bi-Annually with a Senior Pet
Senior pets can suffer from the same issues we do in old age. Luckily, arthritis, dental disease, diabetes, and more can be managed to preserve the quality of your senior pet's life. Due to the number of age-related conditions pets can suffer from and their tendency to rapidly progress, we recommend bi-annual exams for all our senior patients. The age at which pets are consider senior varies, so ask us for more information if you're unsure of what life stage your pet is in!
