Wellness and Vaccination Programs

Help us keep your pet healthy by bringing him or her in for regular exams and vaccinations. Dogs and cats (and other pets) age far faster than people, so significant changes in your pet’s health can happen in a short time. Wellness programs allow us to diagnose diseases and conditions early, when they’re easier to treat or manage. Often, we can help prevent diseases entirely, just by ensuring that your pet has received appropriate vaccinations and preventives. We recommend that healthy adult dogs and cats visit us once a year. Puppies, kittens, senior pets, and pets with health issues or illnesses need more frequent checkups. We’ll work with you to create a wellness program, including a vaccination and prevention protocol, for your pet. Call us today to schedule your pet’s wellness exam.

During our visits, we provide helpful information and support materials on nutrition, behaviour and general care. We will also set up a health program including a series of examinations, vaccinations and parasite control for your pet’s needs. We will inform you of all the services Britannia Animal Hospital has to offer your pet and welcome you to tour our animal hospital.

Adult Pet Wellness

The annual detailed physical examination is crucial to proper preventative care of adult dogs and cats. Because these creatures age more rapidly than humans do, a yearly examination combined with blood and fecal tests allows us to monitor their health and to detect any underlying concerns, to allow intervention early. As well, vaccinations, parasite control, nutrition and dental care are discussed at these appointments.

Senior Pet Wellness

By |

Most dogs and cats are considered to be seniors by the time they are 7 years old. After this age, we schedule preventative examinations on a biannual basis. We also offer some additional testing for these pets including urinalysis, chest X-rays, ECG’s, blood pressure monitoring and tonometry. We can also discuss any behavioural changes which may occur with age, and options to deal with them.
