Pet Wellness Care In Sunrise Fl

Our Pet Wellness Program

The pet wellness exam allows us to set a baseline of health for your pet and determine what other treatments will be necessary to keep them as healthy as possible. It’s the perfect time for you to ask questions and bring up any concerns you may have about caring for your pet.

When you bring them in for their annual check-up, our veterinarian will consult your pet’s medical record to assess their current health, and compare it to their last visit. This makes it easier for us to identify any unusual changes in their condition, and work quickly to diagnose and correct the problem.

Our wellness visits cover multiple areas for every stage of your pet’s life, including:

  • Puppy and kitten care
  • Avian, reptile, and exotic vet care
  • Nutrition
  • Imaging and diagnostics
  • Vaccinations
  • Activity and exercise
  • Teeth cleaning and oral health
  • Microchipping
  • Parasite prevention
  • Senior care

Pet Parasite Prevention

Here in South Florida, there are many different types of external and internal parasites living in our environment. We need to test for and protect our pets from these parasites. We recommend testing every 6-12 months depending on your pet’s lifestyle, and keeping them on preventatives so they can remain healthy and parasite-free.

  • External Parasites

    Fleas, ticks, mites, and mosquitoes are present here year-round and can cause a lot of problems for untreated cats, dogs, and exotic pets. Mosquitoes can transmit heartworm disease, fleas transmit tapeworms, and ticks may carry serious bacterial diseases like anaplasma and Ehrlichia.

  • Internal Parasites

    Hookworms and roundworms are very common in the environment and can cause potentially serious issues for pets if left untreated. These worms live in the pet’s intestines and feed on blood. These parasites can also be passed to humans through contact with infected feces.

Preventative Pet Diagnostics

Our pets can’t talk and they often don’t show signs when something is wrong. This is why we highly recommend diagnostics on a routine basis for the prevention or early detection of certain conditions. These can include bloodwork and X-rays, which allow us to diagnose potential diseases before they can become serious issues.

Keeping up with your pet’s annual wellness and prevention visits ensures you will both have many happy years together. Pets are family, too, and they deserve the best care we can give them!
