Wellness & Vaccinations

Would you like to know the secret to keeping your best friend happy and healthy?

Because companion animals age at a much faster rate than humans, it’s important that we do everything within our power to stay on top of their ongoing good health. The best way to accomplish this goal is through routine wellness and preventative care. When we are able to examine your pet on a regular basis, we are able to prevent illness and detect disease in its earliest stages. This can vastly extend the number of years you get to enjoy your pet’s companionship, and improve the quality of that extra time tenfold.

Benefits of Wellness Care

There are many reasons why wellness care is so important to your pet. First and foremost, these recurring visits allow us to gather an accurate picture of your companion’s current health status. When we understand what is considered “normal” for your pet, we can use that information to measure and monitor any changes that may occur over the years. This means that if your pet becomes sick, we can catch it right away, when it’s more effective and less expensive to treat.

Secondly, wellness visits provide the opportunity to take a more proactive approach to managing your pet’s health. When we employ preventative measures like vaccinations, parasite control, nutrition and weight management, we can help your loved one avoid many ailments that are common in companion animals. That way, rather than treating medical problems once they develop, we can prevent them from occurring in the first place.

Finally, routine wellness visits give us the chance to really get to know you and your pet. We believe that the foundation of quality veterinary care is a strong doctor/patient/client bond. The more we work with you and your companion, the more we will come to understand his or her unique needs. This allows us to develop the most effective health care plan that is specifically tailored to help your pet achieve optimum health, year after year.

At Willowbrook Veterinary Hospital, P.C., we recommend twice yearly exams for all patients (more frequently for senior pets and those who have existing health conditions). Each semi-annual checkup includes a comprehensive physical exam, nutrition and weight assessment, preventative care, routine diagnostic testing and anything else the doctor may deem necessary. Wellness care is available to animals of all species and ages.
