Preventing Illness with Pet Wellness Care

Pet wellness care is about much more than a physical exam every year. It includes diagnostic lab work, dental evaluation, vaccinations, nutrition, and more. Our goal is twofold: to prevent disease from developing and to detect any diseases present in their earliest and most easily treated stages. Since pets age so much faster than we do, we recommend seeing your pet annually or semiannually for wellness exams.

What is Included in a Typical Wellness Exam?

When you bring your pet into one of our Boynton Beach locations, you’ll be treated with superior care and compassion. Our veterinarians and staff also practice low-stress handling and are particularly sensitive to the comfort of our feline friends. During a typical wellness exam, we’ll perform any needed services with this same level of sensitivity, respect, and kindness.

Typical services include:

  • Physical exam to check the skin, coat, eyes, ears, mouth, heart, lungs, and more for abnormalities

  • Parasite prevention discussion and prescription
  • Vaccination administration (if due)
  • Age-appropriate bloodwork to detect any underlying diseases
  • Fecal exam to check for intestinal parasites

Bloodwork & Dental Evaluations

While the entire wellness exam is enormously important, two of the services we perform stand out from the rest: bloodwork and dental evaluations. We highly recommend running baseline bloodwork with every wellness visit. Bloodwork helps us establish your pet’s ‘normal’ and makes it easier to detect any abnormalities sooner rather than later.

Additionally, dental disease is one of the most common diseases among cats and dogs. With annual dental evaluations, we’re able to stay on top of the progression of disease and recommend a professional cleaning before more serious procedures like extractions are needed.
