Adult Pet Care 

As your furry companion ages, his or her health needs will change over time. The veterinarians at Companion Animal Clinic & Pet Resort will work with you at your first preventative wellness plan in order to establish a lifetime of good pet health. 

Annual Wellness Exam

We highly recommend a proactive approach to your pet's health care. During this appointment, our doctors will examine your pet's health by evaluating the eyes, ears, mouth, coat & skin, weight and urogenital area - looking for any potentially troubling health signs. Additionally, we will listen to your pets heart and lungs, palpate the abdomen and more.  Our veterinarians will also want to talk with you about any changes you may have noticed such as appetite, drinking habits and general behavior. Our doctors will take into consideration your pet's breed, age and lifestyle factors. They may possibly perform selected lab tests in order to establish baseline numbers. This will allow them to monitor your pet for years to come. 

During your pet's annual Wellness Exam, we will also discuss your pet's health with regards to :

Pet Vaccinations

Pet Dental Care

Nutritional / Weight Management

Parasite Screening

Pet Vaccinations

Why take a chance with your pets' health? Pet vaccines are the safest and most effective way to prevent contracting a preventable disease.  Please visit the Vaccination page of our website to learn which vaccines we recommend for your adult pet. 

Pet Dental Care

Most people are very aware of their own teeth and understand plaque control, cavity prevention and the social evils of bad breath. While most people visit their dentist regularly, many pet owners do not realize their animals are subject to the same problems.

Annual dental exams are highly recommended as part of a good wellness routine. At your pet's annual exam, we will assess whether a dental cleaning is necessary. We will work with you to schedule an appointment for a professional cleaning at our clinic.

Pet Nutritional Counseling

We will also monitor your pet's weight and physical condition at their annual exam. Our veterinarians will evaluate your pet's specifics like his or her species, breed, age activity level and other health factors and they would be happy to provide nutritional counseling. 

Parasite Screening

Many parasites are transmittable to humans - therefore it is vital your pet have an annual fecal test. In order to nearly eliminate heartworm risk, you pet needs to be on heartworm preventative year round - as recommended by Centers for Disease Control and the Companion Animal Parasite Council. Our doctors will also discuss your pet's risk of fleas depending on his or hers lifestyle and exposure risk. 

Does Your Pet Need A Yearly Exam?

We highly recommend a yearly wellness checkup for your pet which will allow us to take a proactive approach to your pet's health care. 

A large part of your pet’s veterinary care stems from the prevention aspect. This not only spares them from harmful illnesses but contributes to their long healthy life, too!
