Pet Wellness Care
At The Pets I Love, we recommend scheduling yearly annual wellness visits for your dogs and cats.
Pet Wellness Care in Monroe, NY
During these visits, we perform comprehensive physical examinations, administer vaccinations, and perform yearly testing for heartworm disease, tick-borne diseases, and intestinal parasites. Our focus is on preventative medicine, dental care, and nutrition, and we’re always available to address any questions or concerns you have about your pet.
We try to make your pet’s visit as easy as possible!
We prioritize low-stress handling of our patients and strive to make each visit as easy as possible. Our team creates a quiet environment, takes their time, minimizes the amount of restraint, and rewards our patients with delicious treats and praise.
Our appointment process begins with one of our veterinary technicians taking a full history of your pet’s health and any concerns you may have. Your pet will have a chance to relax and get comfortable in the new surroundings.
Our veterinarians perform a thorough physical examination to detect any conditions that may impact your pet’s health before they become unmanageable or more costly to treat. In some cases, we may recommend blood and/or urine tests to assess overall organ function and internal health. Our goal is to detect any issues early on, so that we can provide the best possible care for your beloved pet.
The Importance of Wellness Visits for Our Feline Friends
We understand that taking your feline friend to the vet can be a challenge, especially given their inclination to hide, protest, and sometimes even urinate out of stress. Nevertheless, it is critical to prioritize these visits, even if your cat appears to be in good health. Cats are masters at concealing signs of sickness or discomfort, so routine check- ups can aid veterinarians in monitoring your cat’s diet, appetite, urinary habits, and any changes in behavior.
The Importance of Vaccinating Your Pet
Ensuring your pet receives vaccinations is a critical part of their overall health and well-being. Not only can vaccinations prevent many life-threatening illnesses, but they can also safeguard against diseases prevalent in wildlife and those transmissible to humans. It’s crucial to begin administering vaccinations when your pets are young, as their developing immune systems require protection to stay healthy. Even pets who live indoors should receive vaccinations, as they can still be exposed to diseases.
To determine which vaccinations are necessary or recommended for your pet based on their age, health, and lifestyle, consult with a veterinarian at Pets I Love.
