Head-to-Tail Pet Wellness Exams
Keeping your pet sheltered and fed is certainly important, but their care isn’t complete without annual wellness exams. As soon as you bring your newly-adopted puppy or kitten home, you need to head over to the phone and schedule their first wellness visit. During these visits, we’ll conduct a head-to-tail physical exam, provide dietary recommendations, exercise/play suggestions, house-training instructions (if necessary), and much more. Overall, the goal of our wellness exams in Marinette is to ensure your pet is healthy, happy, and protected from infectious diseases throughout their life.
Our Wellness Care Services
Maintaining your pet’s good health takes commitment and regular communication with your veterinarian. We want to be the first place you turn to when you have questions or concerns about your loved one’s care. Along with pet wellness exams, our services also include:
- Fecal testing
- Blood testing
- Diagnostic imaging
- Parasite prevention
- Dietary counseling
- Behavioral counseling
- …and more
The Wellness Exam
Pet wellness exams are where we establish your companion’s vaccination protocol, test their blood and stool for parasites, and perform a complete physical, in which we check their:
- Heart rate
- Skin and coat
Your pet’s wellness visit is the best time to come to us with questions and to let us know if you have observed any abnormal symptoms or behaviors at home. In fact, we encourage pet owners to make notes of any changes they see and, if possible, to film unusual behaviors on their phones that they can show us later.
During this appointment, we’ll also make vaccine and parasite prevention recommendations based on your pet’s lifestyle, and discuss their spay/neuter surgery (if applicable).
Senior Pet Care
As we get older, we become more prone to injury and disease, and the same happens with our pets. Our veterinarians prefer to see their geriatric patients twice a year for wellness exams and routine diagnostics to monitor their health and check for signs of disease. We want to help you keep your senior pet as comfortable and active as possible during their golden years, and the best way to do that is with a consistent wellness routine. Many pets require medications and supplements when they reach this stage in their life, and we’ll give you all the best recommendations to suit their needs.
