Preventive Pet Exams to Maintain Wellness
A core element of our commitment to you is providing compassionate, quality care, and to do that, we need to see your pet! We encourage you to be proactive in your pet’s health and bring them in for routine pet exams, particularly if they are at vulnerable life stages such as newborns up to 1 year old and senior pets. Pet wellness care is a strong component at our locations in Merritt Island, Viera, and Cocoa Beach.
Pet Wellness Care Plans
To help you better manage your pet’s health, you can take advantage of our wellness packages for both cats and dogs. We have separate plans for puppies and kittens as well as adult dogs and cats since each group has its own specific needs. However, some things are the same. All plans cover the following:
New Wellness Plans will be coming soon, so please ask us for more information at your next visit, or give us a call!
Keep in mind as well that the value of physical exams does not start and end with your pet. Pet exams give you the opportunity to come to us with any questions or concerns you have about your pet’s health.
Life Stage Care: Different Ages Need Different Care
While our pet wellness care plans do have similar components for all our patients, we do also offer customized life stage care for puppies and kittens, adult pets, and seniors.
Puppies and Kittens
Puppy and kitten care is designed to meet the needs of their immature immune systems and get them started on a path to wellness. Puppies and kittens receive a series of vaccinations, tests to check for parasites, and we will also set an appropriate timeline for their spay and neuter surgery. Additionally, we may talk to you about their diet, behavior, training, and more.
Adult pets need to keep up on their vaccinations, parasite prevention, and annual wellness exams. While adult pets are typically at the prime of their life, illness can strike at any time. It is important to bring them in for regular pet wellness care so we can catch any issues immediately before they become larger problems.
Senior pets require a bit more upkeep than adults. Illness and injury are more likely to occur and so semi-annual exams are encouraged to keep better tabs on their health. Older pets develop many of the same problems we do, such as loss of sight and hearing, decline in mental acuity, and chronic conditions like arthritis. To keep them in tip-top shape well into their golden years, we need to see them more often.
