Keep Your Pet Healthy with Twice-a-Year Exams

Pets age faster than people. By age two, most pets have already reached adulthood. By age seven, many pets are entering their senior years.
Because dogs and cats age so rapidly, major health changes can occur in a short amount of time.
Today’s pets are living longer than ever, increasing the chance they will experience a potentially serious illness during their lifetime.
Twice-a-year wellness exams can help your veterinarian diagnose, treat or prevent problems before they become life-threatening.
Twice-a-year wellness exams provide an opportunity to discuss nutrition, pet behavior and other concerns with your veterinarian.

As part of our Adult through Senior wellness care, we offer a wide range of preventive services. For new puppies and kittens, we offer packages of care to make sure they get a healthy head-start in the first year of their life. Throughout their adult years, we recommend you bring your pet in for a wellness exam every 6 months, so that any potential for health problems can be detected and treated early. We offer health screening for many different health problems, including diabetes, Von Willebrand’s disease, renal dysplasia, and hip dysplasia. As your pet ages, we can help diagnose any health problems that may arise, and create a plan of treatment that is tailored to your pet.

Essential Care Plans


Pets are members of the family, and they grow up so fast. In fact, pets age 5-7 years for each human year. By 6 months your new puppy or kitten is the equivalent of a 3 year old, which is why an Essential Care Plan that includes all of the examinations and preventive medicine your pet needs on an annual basis is vital to helping them live a long and happy life.
