At AniMed Animal Hospital, we prioritize preventative health care. Wellness care is important for every animal, from dogs and cats, to birds and exotic pets. We recommend annual wellness visits for all pets, and biannual visits for our senior companions because they are more prone to illness. Through preventative measures such as vaccines, parasite control, and routine wellness visits, we are able to minimize the risk of many pet diseases. We invite you to read about our many wellness services below. If you are looking to schedule a wellness visit for your pet, please call us at your earliest convenience!

In the event that anything about your pet’s condition seems atypical, it’s usually best to bring him or her in for a visit with one of our veterinarians. The challenge in diagnosing pets is that they cannot tell us how they are feeling. It takes special medical tools to reach an accurate diagnosis so that your pet can be treated safely and effectively. At AniMed Animal Hospital, our veterinarians utilize modern diagnostic technology to pinpoint the source of your pet’s symptoms quickly and accurately. Once we have diagnosed a condition, we can get started on the proper treatment right away, so that your pet will be feeling his or her best as soon as possible.

Pet Dental Services
Many pet owners don’t realize that dental care is one of the most important aspects of your pet’s overall health. Just as we take good care of our teeth, our pet’s need proper dental care to maintain a healthy mouth. When dental care is neglected, pets develop gum disease, also called periodontal disease. Gum disease can be very painful and even cause teeth to fall out. You veterinarian will check your pet’s mouth and teeth during your annual physical exam, looking for signs of dental disease, and recommend a professional dental cleaning if necessary.
