Pet Wellness Examinations and Immunizations
The gradual onset of health problems in an apparently healthy pet often goes unnoticed. Once symptoms appear, the condition may be too difficult or costly to diagnose and treat. Age is not a disease; however, there are many conditions that, if diagnosed early, can be completely reversed or controlled for extended periods of time.
At least once, perhaps twice, a year, your pet needs a complete physical examination. Remember, your pet’s lifespan is shorter than ours. A lot can happen in 12 months.
Due to the many recent discoveries and innovations in veterinary medicine, your pet can be protected from most major diseases. Today, many immunizations and preventive treatments are available that did not exist just a few years ago. Vaccination protocols are individualized for your pet. We take into account the exposures and risks your pet faces in your community and where you travel. The staff at Plainfield Animal Hospital can help you decide what preventive measures are necessary for your pet(s).
