Wellness & Vaccinations

Would you like to know the secret to keeping your pet around for many healthy years?

Because companion animals have a much shorter lifespan than humans, it’s imperative that we take every measure to manage their good health. That way, if a problem comes up, we can address it right away. We can also work to prevent illness from occurring in the first place. This is the basis of wellness care, and it’s something we feel strongly about at Collingswood Veterinary Hospital & Urgent Care. Through routine physical exams, ongoing health screenings and preventative care, we can get your pet on the path to a long, happy life.

Whether your animal friend is a youngster or well into his or her senior years, routine wellness care is essential. At each visit, we will conduct a comprehensive physical exam to verify that everything is functioning just as it should be. From nose to tail, we’ll make a thorough analysis of your pet’s condition. We can then use this information to compare future exams against, identifying any changes as soon as they occur.

In addition to our annual checkups, we will also take proactive measures to protect your pet against many common ailments. The doctor will develop a vaccination plan that is tailored specifically to your pet’s unique needs and risk factors. We’ll discuss your pet’s lifestyle and behavior and make recommendations on nutrition, weight management and anything else we feel is important to your companion’s wellbeing.

Wellness visits also involve regular health screenings, such as routine blood work, which we can perform right in-house. These tests reveal the signs of potential health concerns early, when they are still easy and inexpensive to treat. Addressing medical problems in a timely manner can vastly improve the chances of a positive outcome for your pet. This can extend your loved one’s life by years, and make that extra time more enjoyable for you both.

Finally, we view wellness care as an opportunity to forge a lifelong partnership with you. We want to become more than just your pet’s doctor; rather, your trusted resource for support and education. We want to work with you, as a team, to help your companion live a long, fulfilling life by your side. Our staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and we welcome your questions. This will help you to make the best decisions about your pet’s health care.

Your pet is an important part of the family. Call today and let us design the perfect wellness plan for your best friend.
