Pet Vaccines & Exams
At Wellington Veterinary Hospital, we believe following a proper vaccination schedule can assist to guarantee that you are doing your part to keep your new friend healthy.
Vaccines protect cats and dogs from a variety of viral and bacterial infections to which they may be exposed. Your veterinarian will put up a vaccination program for your pet to protect him or her from diseases that are prevalent in your area. To ensure that kittens and puppies are fully protected against infections, they often require an initial immunization followed by booster shots.
Following a proper vaccination schedule will help you protect your new buddy from illness. We also recommend that all dogs and cats be given monthly parasite prevention, as well as being tested every two years for parasites.
The foundation of any pet wellness program is a bi-annual examination. Our highly experienced veterinarians can gain a deeper understanding of your pet’s baseline health when they examine him on a regular basis. Pets age much faster than humans, therefore it’s critical to detect potential issues before they become serious. Twice each year, we need to check your pet to see whether anything has changed.
During the wellness examination, our veterinarian analyzes your pet’s health from stem to stern. Our veterinarian thoroughly examines the state of your pet’s health during this examination. The following are some examples of things that may be done during a pet’s wellness check:
- A physical exam of your pet’s eyes, ears, and skin
- Check-in on your pet’s weight and nutrition
- Evaluation of the teeth and gums to check for signs of dental disease
- Listen to the heart and lungs to check for abnormalities
- A mobility or lameness check
- In-house diagnostic testing, if needed
