A thorough exam starts at the tip of the nose and ends at the point of the tail. During examinations our doctors examine the eyes, nose, mouth, ears, lymph nodes, skin, temperature, and abdomen through palpation of internal structures. They will discuss all findings and create an individual plan of action. Our doctors will take the time needed to be sure you have all your questions answered and are able to leave knowing what the next step is for keeping your fur baby healthy.
Vaccinations or Vaccination Titers:
When your pet is coming in for their annual wellness exam we will discuss if continuing to vaccinate with standard vaccines is appropriate. Here at Pawsitive Wellness Veterinary Care our doctors believe in tailoring your pet’s lifestyle needs to the wellness care they receive. While there are some medically necessary and/or required by law vaccinations, we want to be sure your pet’s specific needs are considered so they can have fun rain or shine.
A complete dental cleaning is one of the most important wellness practices we can do for your fur baby. Keeping your best friends mouth free from infection, loose teeth, gingival recession or growths will directly positively impact their ability to stay healthy long term. Our doctors will be assessing the need for and/or urgency of dental care at your friend’s annual wellness examination. We will also, at that time, be able to formulate a care plan with the recommendations from the examination findings.
In House Lab Testing
Some dog and cat parasites can infect people, this is called a zoonotic disease. Young animals, such as puppies and kittens, are more likely to be infected with roundworms and hookworms. Regular veterinary care will protect your pet and your family. There are simple steps we can take to protect yourself and your family from these zoonotic diseases. Here at Pawsitive Wellness Veterinary Care we recommend using monthly parasite control for internal parasites and external parasites. Using these broad-spectrum products helps prevent your fur baby and yourself from contracting one of these nasty creatures.
In today’s day and age technology can help keep our pets safe and bring them home. Having a microchip implanted is a great way to help ensure that, should your best friend have a mis-adventure, they have a way to get in touch with you. It is imperative that the most current contact information be kept up to date with the microchip company. All found, adopted or stray pets that come in to our facility are scanned for a microchip. If the pet has a microchip number, we then can look up the owner’s information and get them back home quickly. If the pet has been adopted from a shelter and comes with adoption paperwork they will have already established that there is no current owner searching for the pet in question.
Implanting a microchip is something that can be done at a regular wellness exam by our doctors or a licensed veterinary technician.
