Preventative Care or wellness care is a positive approach to dog and cat health that considers everything from vaccines to your family’s lifestyle.
Our basic wellness protocol is tailored to each individual pet, but in most cases include the following:
- Comprehensive physical exam
- Parasite prevention and treatment
- Laboratory Diagnostics
- Basic & advanced Dental Care
- Spay & Neuter
As a year in your pet’s life is equal to 6 or 7 human years, wellness means a more consistent approach to prevention than a simple annual checkup. For all pet’s, we recommend wellness exams every 6 months, comparable to a doctor visit every 3 years for you.
We believe this timetable is crucially important to detect developing problems early, when they are most treatable and to spread out the basic veterinary care, dental exams and cleanings, blood work, diagnostic testing and vaccines over the course of a year, with less trauma to pets and to your pocketbook.
PetLife Animal Hospital works with every client to determine the best approach to care for your cat or dog, as well as the wellness regime that fits your family’s needs and lifestyle.
It is important to know that puppies and kittens have very different wellness needs than senior pets. Consequently, you should feel free to ask our team of highly skilled veterinarians and veterinary technicians any questions you may have about your pet, as they age and change in their health, behavior, etc.
Wellness care is geared toward enhancing and prolonging life in every pet, and at PetLife, we are dedicated to helping you enjoy a positive relationship with your beloved companion for many years to come.
