What Does Health & Wellness  Really Mean?
Preventative health & wellness pet care consists of a combination of practices you can implement at home and services your FAH veterinarian can provide to help prevent disease and increase the life of your beloved pet.
During the wellness visit, our veterinary team will discuss a wide variety of topics with you to help you understand your pets needs and why routine wellness visits are necessary for keeping them healthy.

We’ll also explain the importance of vaccinations for, heartworm, flea, and tick prevention, annual heart screening tests, wellness profiles, dental health, and much more.
If you have questions about food options, how much to feed your pet, or if your pet is at a healthy weight don’t please consult with our veterinarian.

Specialized Care For Aging Patients

Most of us remember being told that 1 year of a dog’s life is equal to 7 years of a human.  While this averages out, we must also take into account the size of the animal.

Example; An eight year old Great Dane is a senior citizen while an eight year old Miniature Poodle is only middle aged.

As our pets age there are a number of diseases and conditions that can impact them and shorten their lives and decrease their quality of life.

Early detection allows for early intervention thus helping to prevent serious harm and/or slow the progression of any disease.

While most clients understand that an annual pet physical exam is important throughout our pet’s lives, it is also important to begin screening our pets as they reach “middle age” with an “internal exam” consisting of lab work and other diagnostics tests.

We can diagnose conditions such as diabetes, heart and liver disease, arthritis, hypothyroidism, as well as different types of cancer.

We encourage all owners of middle aged and senior pets to get them on a regular plan of preventive health care to keep them happy and healthy for as many years as possible.
