At PetMedic Hospitals, we believe prevention is the best medicine. Preventative medicine is the cornerstone of our standard of care. Our Wellness Plans include all preventative treatment and testing recommended annually to help prolong the health and happiness of your pet.
Unlimited Free Office Visits (during regular business hours): Free office visits gives you peace of mind. You don’t have to worry if your pet’s symptom or behavior is normal or an indicator of something more serious. Don’t wait and worry about an office visit fee! Let us see your pet as soon as there are any changes because the earlier we can diagnose an issue, the better the treatment options and prognosis.
- Rabies is a viral infection that affects your pet’s brain and central nervous system. It affects all mammals (humans included!) and is always fatal. Rabies vaccine is required by law.
- Distemper is a virus disease that initially affects the GI and respiratory systems and then moves to the nervous system. It is usually fatal although some dogs may survive.
- Parvovirus is a highly contagious virus illness that causes severe, often fatal hemorrhagic gastroenteritis.
- Bordetella is a highly contagious respiratory bacteria that is one of the causes of “kennel cough”. The most common symptom of kennel cough is a dry honking cough which may be bacterial or caused by one of several respiratory viruses. Dogs in highly populated situations such as boarding facilities, doggy day care, and dog parks are at high risk for exposure to kennel cough.
Canine Heartworm Test: Heartworms are transmitted by the bite of infected mosquitoes. Once mature, the adult heartworms lodge in the heart, lungs, and major blood vessels. Heartworms can be fatal if left untreated and is preventable with once monthly medication.
Intestinal Fecal Exam: Intestinal parasites can cause serious illness and even death in pets. Some parasites are also zoonotic, which means they can infect humans.
Roundworm/Hookworm Deworming: Preventative care for two of the most common intestinal parasites.
Microchip: Lost dogs are 2.5 times more likely to be reunited with their owners if they are microchipped and lost cats are 20 times more likely to be returned to their owners.
Spay/Neuter Surgery: Spaying greatly reduces the chance of mammary cancer, especially if your pet is spayed before her first estrous cycle and also eliminates the possibility of uterine or ovarian cancer. Neutering will decrease the possibility of prostate disease and also eliminates the possibility of testicular cancer. Spaying/Neutering can also be beneficial to avoid unwanted behavioral issues. Our spay/neuter package includes pre-anesthetic blood work that is run the morning of the procedure to ensure your pet is healthy enough to have their surgery, anesthesia, IV fluids, the spay/neuter surgery itself, as well as injectable pain medication to ensure your pet’s comfort in recovery.
Dental Prophylaxis: Poor dental health affects not only your pets’ breath, but contributes to heart, liver, and kidney disease. In addition, dental disease can cause a significant amount of pain, though cats and dogs are very good at masking this pain until advanced disease occurs. Our dental package includes pre-anesthetic blood work that is run the morning of the procedure to ensure your pet is healthy enough to go under anesthesia and also includes the anesthesia, IV fluids, and dental scaling with polishing.
Annual Total Health Blood Work/Urinalysis/Radiographs: Total health blood work, urinalysis and radiographs help to identify and monitor changes in your pet’s health enabling earlier diagnosis and treatment options for a variety of conditions.
