Wellness Care

Pet Wellness Protocols in Kane County, McHenry County, Cook County, Dupage County and Lake County.

Our time with our pets is always far too short, but we can help you make that time count! Further improvements in veterinary medicine and education enable our pets to live longer than they ever have before, and we’d like to continue this trend. Pet wellness protocols are vital to your pet’s health and longevity, because they allow us to proactively prevent disease and other issues. Working collaboratively with pet owners and maintaining a consistent schedule will go a long way towards helping them spend more quality time with their beloved companions.

Canine Wellness

Wellness programs have various components, from the comprehensive dog exam to laboratory diagnostics. During the physical, your veterinarian will check your pet’s weight, temperature, respiratory rate and heart rate, ears, eyes, mouth, skin and coat, joints/limbs, etc. If you have a new puppy, we'll need to discuss parasite prevention, housebreaking and training, vaccinations, spay and neuter, behavior, nutrition and more to start them off right.

We recommend fecal tests to check for intestinal parasites, which many puppies are born with. We will need to test them again following treatment, to ensure that they’re parasite-free.

Feline Wellness

Your veterinarian will want to see your cat once a year for their physical exam and any additional treatments. During new kitten appointments, we will discuss a variety of topics including litter box training, diet, exercise, microchipping, parasite prevention, and spaying or neutering. Cats also require annual fecal testing, and can be safely treated with medication to eradicate parasites.

Parasite Prevention

Both cats and dogs can fall victim to parasites, but there are many ways to treat and prevent the problems they may cause. We offer various high-quality flea, tick and heartworm preventatives to keep pets protected, and recommend that they be given regularly for maximum effect. Even strictly indoor pets can be vulnerable to parasites; therefore it is better to be safe than sorry.

Let's Get Started!

For the best care, pet need to come in for annual cat & dog exams. Senior pets should see us every six months for a full evaluation and to check for acute or chronic issues. We love seeing our pet patients thriving and greeting us with wagging tails or head rubs! Our goal is always to improve their quality of life and give them many more years to spend with you.
