Wellness Care for Dogs
Prevention and early disease detection is the key to keeping your dog healthy. At Mayde Creek Animal Health Center, we recommend annual wellness examination for your family pet. Yearly wellness exams allow us to keep your dog healthy with tailored vaccines, heartworm testing, parasite protection, and nutritional counseling. More importantly, annual wellness exams are important to catch underlying health problems early on, when treatment is most effective. The custom wellness plans are developed based on your dog and his or her unique needs, including breed, age, lifestyle, medical history, and current health condition.
Our annual, comprehensive canine wellness exam at Mayde Creek Animal Health Center includes:
- A thorough nose-to-tail physical examination
- A dental evaluation
- Vaccines tailored specifically to your dog’s lifestyle, age, health and exposure risks
- Heartworm test and heartworm prevention
- Recommendations for parasite prevention and control (i.e. fleas, ticks, and worms)
- Nutritional counseling, including exercise habits
- Behavioral counseling
Please note that additional diagnostic testing may be recommended depending on our findings.
The Value of Canine Wellness Exams
Your dog’s wellness exam helps us to understand your expectations as pet owner and allows us to establish a long relationship with you and your pet. Establishing a baseline of health early allows us to measure changes in your dog over time, enabling us to detect the onset of diseases earlier when treatment and prevention are most effective. Wellness exams play a vital role in the early detection of any future health issues and are critical in preventing illness and disease.
