Importance of Pet Wellness Care/Checkup

Regular pet wellness checkups are essential for maintaining your pet’s overall health and well-being. These routine visits allow our experienced veterinarians to assess your pet’s current health status, detect any potential issues early on, and provide preventive care to ensure a long and fulfilling life for your beloved companion.

Comprehensive Health Evaluation

During a pet wellness checkup at Grand Avenue Veterinary Hospital, our dedicated team will conduct a thorough physical examination of your pet, assessing their weight, body condition, dental health, and more. We’ll also take the time to discuss your pet’s diet, exercise routine, and any changes in behavior or lifestyle.

Preventive Parasite Control

One crucial aspect of our pet wellness care/checkup services is parasite prevention. Parasites such as fleas, ticks, and intestinal worms can pose serious health risks to your pet and even to your family members. That’s why we offer effective parasite control measures to keep these pesky invaders at bay.

Benefits of Parasite Prevention

By implementing a regular parasite prevention plan for your pet, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing that they are protected from harmful parasites. Our veterinarians will recommend the most suitable preventive products based on your pet’s individual needs and lifestyle, ensuring maximum effectiveness and safety.

When to Schedule a Pet Wellness Checkup

We recommend scheduling a pet wellness checkup at least once a year for adult pets and more frequently for puppies, kittens, senior pets, and those with chronic health conditions. These regular visits allow us to monitor your pet’s health status over time and make any necessary adjustments to their preventive care plan.
