Wellness & Vaccinations

Many otherwise caring, responsible pet owners make the mistake of believing that they only need to bring their pet in to see the veterinarian when there is an illness or injury present. To the contrary, the most important benefit of veterinary care is that it allows us to be proactive about preventing illnesses or injuries from occurring in the first place. This is best accomplished through routine wellness care.

The fact is, our pets are only with us for a precious amount of time. That’s why it’s so important that they receive regular checkups to ensure that they are healthy, and to identify the signs of a potential health concern right away so it can be addressed as swiftly and effectively as possible. Disease prevention and early detection can add years to your companion’s life, and improve the quality of those years immeasurably.

Perimeter Veterinary Center offers comprehensive wellness care for pets of all ages. Our wellness services are designed to adapt with your pet’s changing health care needs as they occur over time. For instance, your puppy and kitten will receive care that is focused on things like socialization, vaccinations and nutrition. However, that care will shift more toward healthy screenings and weight management as your pet ages. Likewise, senior animals will receive care that targets disease management and ways to make your companion’s later years as comfortable as possible.

Because pets age and change more quickly than people, wellness visits are recommended every six months. These visits are extremely comprehensive so that we can provide your pet with the best possible chance at a long, healthy life. We begin with a thorough physical exam, as well as appropriate diagnostic tests to further assess your pet’s health. We’ll also develop a customized vaccination plan as well as discuss and provide recommendations on such important matters as parasite control, nutrition and weight management, behavior and more.

Wellness visits also allow us to develop a strong, trusting relationship with you and your pet. At Perimeter Veterinary Center, we consider you to be an integral part of your pet’s health care team. When we see you both on a regular basis, we are able to answer your questions, discuss your concerns and explain all of your options when it comes to keeping your pet happy and healthy. Our goal is to forge a lifelong partnership with the shared goal of providing your pet with the best available care throughout his or her lifetime.

Your pet is a part of your family, and you always want the very best for them. It starts with a commitment to ongoing wellness care. Don’t wait until your companion is sick or hurt to make an appointment with us! Let us help your cherished four-legged friend achieve a lifetime of good health through our comprehensive wellness and preventative care services.
