Your pet deserves the best in veterinary care in Wesley Chapel, FL. Our local staff is dedicated to providing, not just emergency care, but ongoing wellness for your family pet.
Pets, regardless of their type, require continuous, professional medical care throughout their lives. Our veterinary wellness checkups ensure your pet receives the essential diagnostics, examinations, and preventive treatments for maintaining their everyday health.
Annual Wellness Checkups
At your pet's yearly wellness checkup, you can expect a general assessment that begins with a physical examination. This is aimed at identifying any apparent issues, such as deformities, growths, pain or discomfort areas, or mobility concerns.
During the visit, you’ll discuss your pet’s health at home and share any concerns you may have, such as alterations in behavior or appetite since the last visit. Your vet will also ask you specific questions to identify common potential issues, and to get a better sense of the animal’s lifestyle at home.
Next, your pet's file will be carefully reviewed to ensure all preventive treatments and any required government-mandated animal care are updated during the annual wellness checkup. This may include:
- Parasite control treatments
Annual wellness checkups provide the chance for your pet to receive needed diagnostic procedures and treatment in a wide range of service areas. Additional services that may be conducted during your pet’s annual veterinary check up include items such as:
- dental examination and treatment
- blood testing
- heartworm testing/treatment
- flea dipping
- FIV testing
- Parvo virus testing
- and more
Wellness Checkups for Special Situations
Consistent wellness checkups are also crucial for pets that fall into special categories, such as aging pets and relatively newborns, like puppies and kittens.
Senior Pet Care
Older pets often develop a range of age-related issues, such as loss of appetite, mobility challenges and failing eyesight. Veterinary wellness checkups support the health aging of your beloved pet to help ensure quality of life for as long as possible.
Puppy and Kitten Care
At a minimum, you should aim to schedule visit for your new puppy or kitten when they are about eight weeks of age. Early wellness checkup can reveal health conditions you should be aware of, as well as to establish a health baseline for your pet's lifetime. If you’re a new pet owner, you'll also receive valuable advice and tips on caring for your young pet, such as tooth brushing techniques and parasite control.
