Pet Wellness Care
At Evergreen Vet Clinic, we believe that effective preventive care for pets should be focused on protecting their health through every phase of their life, not just treating a problem when it arises. We stress a veterinary practice called pet wellness care. This is a comprehensive approach that involves nurturing the whole body of a pet with the goal of preventing disease and illness before it occurs. It includes pet wellness exams, diagnostic testing to detect disorders, and an emphasis on a nutritious diet and healthy lifestyle to keep your pet active and vital throughout their lives. We’ll partner with you to create a customized program of preventative care and wellness based on your pet’s age, breed, living environment, and physical condition.
Our pet wellness program includes several areas of veterinary care, working together to both promote good health and detect the signs and symptoms of underlying disease, injury, and congenital defects so that treatment can be provided before serious harm occurs.
Pet wellness exams are the foundation of effective preventive health care. Your pet should have physical and dental examinations at least once a year throughout their lives to monitor their health and condition.
Cats and dogs are susceptible to many types of serious diseases that can cause pain, misery, and death. Some can be transmitted to other animals and even humans. Having your pet fully vaccinated against the most common diseases is an important part of prevention.
Along with wellness exams, diagnostic analysis of blood, urine, stool, saliva, and other types of samples is a vital part of detecting problems before they become serious.
Internal and external parasites are very common in pets. They can make your pet miserable and, left untreated, can be very harmful to their health. Fortunately, once detected, they are easy to control.
Having your pet spayed or neutered provides many health benefits for your pet as well as preventing unwanted litters.
Just like their human owners, pets often get sick and unwell because they are not getting the nutrients their bodies need at different stages of their lives. With pet wellness exams and diagnostic testing, we can work up a nutritional profile and recommendations specifically for your pet.
