Does My Pet Need a Wellness Exam & Vaccination?

Whether your new puppy or kitten requires an introductory exam or your sweet senior pet needs a routine checkup, we will offer effective annual wellness exams delivered with accuracy and efficiency. Animals age rapidly, and significant changes can occur to their health in a short period of time. We believe regular wellness visits are crucial for responding to your pet's ever-changing needs. Two of the primary treatments that we can offer during a pet examination include:

  • Intestinal Worm Treatment: Intestinal worms are parasites that can live inside your pet and feed off their body's nutrients. Worms can introduce harmful diseases that will negatively impact their quality of life if left undetected and untreated. Our practice can provide preventive treatment for various parasitic infections like roundworms or hookworms and make sure they don't come back for the next year.
  • Cat & Dog Vaccinations: Our gentle and caring veterinary team can provide vaccinations during the wellness appointment if needed. This will help protect your cats and dogs from infection and disease throughout the coming year, including viruses like rabies and parvovirus. Additionally, this will help your pet stay compliant with Canadian law.

Pet Examinations & Wellness FAQs

Our friendly veterinarians and trusted staff are available to answer any questions regarding animal wellness checks and yearly pet vaccinations. We look forward to helping you feel comfortable and confident about the care your pet is about to receive and how we safeguard their health over time. Some frequently asked questions regarding pet examinations include:

Do puppies and kittens need wellness exams?

Yes. Puppies and kittens have less mature immune systems, making them more susceptible to various types of infections. We will handle your furry young ones with extreme care and respect as we properly examine and provide core vaccinations. Our goal is for your precious puppies and kittens to have a long, healthy life ahead of them.

Vaccinations have a limited potency lifespan and will eventually lose their effectiveness, leaving your pet susceptible to possible infection once more. Periodic booster shots assist their immune systems to stay strong throughout the year. Ask our veterinarians if it's time for your pet to receive their next shot.

Various signs and symptoms could indicate your dog is suffering from a worm infection, which includes bloody diarrhea, vomiting, sudden weight loss, and excessive scooting. If your pet is exhibiting any of these signs and symptoms, don't hesitate to bring them into our practice for an examination and possible treatment.
