Prioritizing Pet Wellness Exams in Texarkana, TX
It’s never too early to think about your pet’s health needs. From puppyhood or kittenhood, to adulthood, to their senior years, your pet’s well-being depends on routine wellness care tailored to their specific lifestyle. At Wisdom Animal Clinic in Texarkana, pet wellness care is a lifelong program in which your pet’s health is evaluated on a routine basis. As their needs change, their wellness program will change, too. The key is starting them on the road to excellent health as early as possible.
Puppy and Kitten Wellness Exams
Puppies and kittens are quite vulnerable to external and internal parasites, and other illnesses caused by pathogens in their environment. We recommend bringing them in to see their veterinarian at approximately 8 weeks of age to start them on their wellness regimen. This includes a thorough exam, fecal testing, blood testing, and their initial series of distemper boosters. If need be, we can also administer deworming medication to treat intestinal parasites.
Routine Pet Wellness Exams
We recommend annual wellness exams for both cats and dogs. The wellness exam typically starts with a nose-to-tail physical examination, along with checking temperature, weight, and heart rate. Your veterinarian will talk to you about what they’ve observed from their examination of your pet, and discuss any questions or concerns you may have about their current health. Parasite screenings will be performed as needed, along with their scheduled vaccinations.
