Pet Wellness Care
To ensure that your pet is in the best health possible, we break down our pet wellness plans and services into life stage categories, making sure that your best friend receives the care they need for their age and condition.
Pet Wellness Care at North Seattle Veterinary Clinic
Every pet needs to enjoy lifelong health depends on their own unique condition, lifestyle, and temperament. Starting with your pet’s very first visit and pet wellness exam, we’ll create a detailed medical history that acts as a roadmap for future care. While every pet is different, there are several essentials for a healthy life:
- Yearly physical exams
- A balanced diet (we carry a variety of prescription diet foods for pets)
- Routine lab work that includes blood, urine, and fecal testing to screen for parasites and other problems
- Routine vaccinations to protect your pet from harmful viruses like rabies and parvovirus
- Monthly doses of parasite preventive
Puppy and Kitten Care
Adult Dogs and Cats
When your dog or cat reaches adulthood, our veterinary team can tailor your pet’s care to their individual needs as each adult pet is unique. During this stage of your pet’s life, we recommend annual wellness exams to help us keep track of the progression of your pet’s health and needs. We conduct nose-to-tail wellness exams, perform diagnostics to check for heartworm, and administer vaccinations that have been deemed necessary for your pet’s needs. We will determine your pet’s vaccination needs through a discussion about your pet’s lifestyle.
Senior Dogs and Cats
During this stage of your pet’s life, we recommend a wellness exam every 6 months. Senior pets are the most diverse life stage, with each one being unique, having their own set of needs and health concerns. The recommendations we may make for your pet’s treatments will be based on assessments of their physical condition, as well as discussions with you about their lifestyle. After all, you know your pet best, and we depend on your partnership to give your companion the best life.
Our goal is to provide the best possible care and education so that your furry loved ones may enjoy a long happy life with you.
We consider you and your pets family and look forward to meeting you.
