Regular preventive care will keep your dog healthy for a long lifetime to spend with you and your family. Preventive care plays a vital role in the early detection of any future health issues, and is critical in preventing illness and disease. By establishing a baseline of health early on, we can measure changes in your dog over time, enabling us to detect the onset of diseases sooner when treatments are most effective.

Physical Exams & Vaccinations

Our canine exams include a thorough physical examination that includes an evaluation of your dog’s coat, skin, eyes, ears, nose, throat, and internal organ systems. At our hospital, your dog will also receive an individualized vaccination plan that caters to his or her needs based on factors including breed, physical condition, and lifestyle.

Professional Dental Exams

During your dog’s professional dental exam, we will perform a thorough oral examination and dental cleaning for your dog. For more information about the dental care provided by our veterinarians, please visit our dental care page.

Parasite Prevention & Control

Our veterinarians will conduct a fecal exam and heartworm test each year to check for the presence of harmful parasites. We can also provide you with recommendations and supply safe and effective preventive treatments for heartworm, ticks, and fleas based on your pet’s needs and lifestyle.

Nutrition & Weight Management

Cultivating a balanced diet and nutrition plan is also an important part of preventive care for your dog. During a wellness exam, we will assess your dog's weight so we can recommend any necessary modifications in their diet or exercise. Learn more about our nutritional counseling services.

The annual exam is also the perfect opportunity to speak with our veterinarians about any concerns you may have about your dog’s health. We will discuss topics such as vaccines, dental care, nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle or age related changes.
