TAILORED WELLNESS PROGRAMS
Wellness Lasts a Lifetime:
Our Pets Have Special Needs at Each Stage of Life
Annual Wellness Testing allows our doctors to identify conditions and diseases in your pet before signs may be evident. Additionally, screening tests provide information on what’s “normal” for your pet, and allows your doctor to quickly evaluate changes in his or her biology.
Why Test Annually?
Pets age roughly 5-7 times faster than humans. It’s vital to test every year to screen for diseases and conditions.
How Will It Save Me Money?
By testing, your doctor will be able to identify critical patterns in your pet’s biological make-up. Ultimately, early detection will enable an accurate diagnosis more quickly, potentially saving you thousands of dollars in tests and critical care.

We have three specially designed wellness programs:
Puppy and Kitten Wellness (The First Year of Life)
Your young dogs and cats deserve extra attention and care, and our Puppy and Kitten Wellness Programs provide the advice you need. Our veterinarians not only check your puppy or kitten to make sure he or she is growing right, but we share our best practices for raising healthy pets that live long healthful lives.
Junior Wellness (1 to 7 years of age)
For dogs and cats that are less than seven years of age, Junior Wellness provides our veterinarians with an important baseline set of results from key diagnostic tests. As time goes on, we compare new results with the old to uncover hidden changes in your pet’s health.
Senior Wellness (greater than 7 years of age)
Older pets need special tests and exams to catch age-related diseases such as diabetes, cancer, kidney disease, Cushing’s and others. In addition to the detailed physical exam and diagnostic blood work and urine testing, our veterinarians may also recommend an ultrasound, electrocardiograph (ECG), or radiographs (x-rays).
