What To Expect

Adult pets should plan to see a doctor once a year for a wellness screening. Senior pets (dogs > 7 years and cats >9 years) may need to be seen twice a year in order to more effectively catch disease in early stages.

Please bring in any medical history you have for your pet when you come to our vet clinic. If you keep a journal of your pet's health throughout his or her life, including behavioral shifts, share it with our team. If not, let us know everything that you think will be important.

If applicable, we will always help you decide when advanced medical options are necessary, as well as to facilitate getting your pet to the needed specialist for advanced testing (MRI, CT scan, radioactive iodine, etc.). Veterinary medicine has advanced greatly in the last several decades, and as a profession, we are able to offer better and cutting-edge treatments for our pets.
