Pet Wellness Exams Contribute to More Quality Time with Your Pet

Why does your pet need preventive care? Regular pet wellness care visits to your La Porte veterinarian allow us to closely monitor their health with wellness exams, parasite screenings, blood work, as well as addressing any nutritional or behavioral issues. The more often we see you and your pet, the deeper relationship we can form, which translates to more personalized care for your furry friend.

Common Pet Health Concerns in La Porte

In our area, parasites and allergies are two of the biggest concerns for our pets. Parasite prevention medication for fleas, ticks, heartworms, and intestinal parasites is a must for every cat and dog. We also perform annual or semi-annual intestinal parasite and heartworm tests on our patients to ensure they are parasite-free. For allergies, we offer pets quality care to not only treat allergy symptoms but manage future outbreaks, too. Pet wellness care helps us keep these issues under control, so your pet can live a healthier, more care-free life.

Breaking Down Preventive Pet Care

What can you expect for your pet’s preventive care? We aim to prevent illness and conditions before they become a problem, and to do that, we perform several services during your pet’s yearly wellness exam. These include:

  • Nose-to-tail physical exam
  • Oral exam
  • Fecal exam to check for intestinal parasites
  • Heartworm tests for dogs
  • Age-appropriate blood work
  • Urinalysis if needed
  • Appropriate vaccinations
  • Behavioral assessment (with counseling if needed)
  • Nutritional assessment (with counseling if needed)
  • Allergy management and treatment of symptoms
  • Parasite prevention medication
  • Prescription medications as needed
Nutritional & Behavioral Counseling

For pets with more severe nutritional or behavioral problems, we offer one-on-one consultations with our knowledgeable veterinarians. We can further assess your pet’s diet and make adjustments until we find one that works best for them. In the case of behavioral problems, we make suggestions for home care, training, and may prescribe medication such as an anti-anxiety drug to help curb their behavior. We can also recommend trusted professional trainers in the area if needed.
