At Charlotte Animal Hospital, we believe in a preventative approach to maintaining your pet’s health and well-being. It is much easier to prevent disease than to treat it once your pet becomes ill. Regular pet wellness exams are a vital component to keeping your cat or dog healthy and will help your veterinarian monitor changes in your pet’s health from year to year. Many pets hide signs of illness well, with some of the more subtle symptoms being hard to detect. Some pets do not show symptoms at all, so keeping up with regular wellness exams is the key to preventative and diagnostic treatment.
Proper vaccinations ensure your pet is receiving all of the protective benefits they can from disease. Puppies and kittens in particular, are susceptible to serious but preventable diseases. Scheduling your new puppy or kitten’s first exam as soon as possible to receive a series of vaccines is very important. Your new kitten or puppy will also be tested and treated for parasites, which can be common in young pets.
Senior wellness packages include additional liver, kidney, and thyroid panels which make it easier for your vet to diagnose any hidden signs of illness.
Pets age much more quickly than humans, so an annual checkup for your cat or dog is equivalent to a person visiting their doctor about every four years. Early detection may improve the prognosis of many diseases, keep long-term health costs down and help give your pet a longer life.
Your pet’s health is important to us. Below are the wellness packages available at Charlotte Animal Hospital designed to give your cat or dog the preventative care they need to live healthy and happy.
*Please be advised that prices for packages will vary depending on whether your pet is spayed or neutered due to county licensing requirements.
