Pet wellness encompasses a range of behavioral and physical needs for your pet and is primarily focused on preventative care. At North Heights Veterinary Clinic in Appleton, we emphasize the importance of check-ups for pets to keep them happy and healthy for years to come.
What Does Pet Wellness Include?
Our veterinarians will personalize your pet’s treatment plan and provide recommendations to follow at home. Your pet’s wellness plan starts with an examination. The comprehensive examination of your pet will include the following:
- A nose to tail examination
- A close look at the eyes, teeth, and ears
- Palpitation (listening to major organs such as the heart and lungs)
- Checking the fur and skin
- Discussing your pet's nutritional and lifestyle needs
- Ensuring that all of your pet’s vaccinations are current
- Parasite and heartworm prevention
Pet Wellness Exams Are Important
A baseline needs to be established for your pet's well-being. This baseline is used as a comparative tool for future visits. The early detection of certain conditions is crucial in preventing these conditions from developing into something serious. Your pet also needs vaccinations throughout its life to protect it from various diseases. Our veterinarians will explain the core and non-core vaccines that pets need to prevent the spread of disease. We may also recommend diagnostic testing or X-rays if an issue is detected and requires further study.
Helping Your Pet Stay Healthy At Home
Your pet will benefit from proper nutrition and healthy lifestyle choices. If your pet has had a difficult time with weight management or obedience training, we can provide actionable steps to help your pet achieve a well-balanced life.
