Pet Wellness Care
for Better Pet Health
No two pets are created equally. Each pet individual deserves the best quality veterinary care available. At Animal Kind Veterinary Hospital, keeping your family pets healthy is our goal. A thorough history, including up-to-date blood test results, gives us a baseline against which we can measure changes in your petís health.
Early detection and treatment are so important to make sure your pet stays in top condition. For example, if your petís blood tests indicate that he or she has diabetes, we would want to get that under control and then develop a long-term plan, including visits to the veterinarian as well as techniques we will teach you for administering care at home.
Animal Kindís Comprehensive Approach to Pet Care
During your petís regular examinations, Animal Kind Veterinary Hospitalís veterinarians will show you symptoms of health problems to look for and weíll listen carefully to your questions and observations. You, the educated and involved pet owner, are your petís best ally. The more knowledge you have, the better informed your decisions about treatment and care options will be.
During each exam, in addition to a complete nose to tail hands-on check, we will take the time to examine and discuss:
- Weight, diet, and nutrition
- Heart, skin, ears, lungs, and eyes
- Behavior issues or changes
- Teeth and your petís mouth
For all pets, an annual fecal exam is done to check for intestinal parasites. In addition, we blood test dogs for heartworm. After a negative heartworm test, we will prescribe heartworm prevention medication.
Exercise & Nutrition Create a Healthy Pet
Because your petís diet contains the components to help him or her build a healthy body, we want you to feed your pet high-quality food. From playful puppy time through the senior years, the best food has an important part to play. We carry a large selection of special diets for treating obesity, kidney insufficiency, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), and other health conditions in our on-site pet pharmacy.
Regular exercise, at least a 15-minute walk three times a week, is crucial for your pet. As well as helping to control weight and keeping your pet fit, vigorous playtime outside and regular walks lead to fewer behavior problems.
