We offer a variety of wellness exams for pets at any life stage.

  • Puppy and Kitten Wellness Exams – We love puppies and kittens! The first exam for new patients is complementary and we will counsel you on general puppy and kitten topics. We offer wellness plans for your newest family member.
  • Routine Health and Senior Examinations, Vaccines and Medicine – All pets are thoroughly examined and vaccinated in your presence. We want you to be comfortable with the treatment and care.
  • Geriatric Care – Your older pet is important to us! We want to help your pet age gracefully and comfortably, and identify problems early in routine care and diagnostics. Please fill out this senior dogcat checklist for your next appointment.

Wellness Screenings 

  • Our pets can’t speak and often will instinctively mask symptoms and signs of illness or pain. Ideally, we would examine your pet every 6 months as well as run some routine screening tests to detect underlying disease before those conditions are clinically apparent.
  • Use the age chart below to find your pet’s age in “people” years and the screening testing recommended for each stage of his or her life. We believe the following tests give us the best chance of helping your pets live longer, healthier lives.
  • These are approximations and may vary by gender, species, and breed.
