One of the best things you can do for your pet is to bring them to the vet for regular exams and vaccinations. Wellness visits allow us to diagnose diseases and conditions early when they’re easier to treat or manage. 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.
At BrownDog Lodge Veterinary Clinic, we provide the highest quality veterinary care to ensure your pet lives a long and healthy life. Often, we can help prevent diseases entirely, just by ensuring that your pet has received appropriate vaccinations and preventives.
We are available if you have questions or concerns about your pet’s health or development. Book a pet wellness exam with one of our veterinarians today!
Our puppy wellness schedule is designed to help get your puppy started on the right path to a long and healthy life. The first few months are a critical period in your puppy’s development, and we can give you the support and tools necessary to them grow into a well-mannered, healthy dog, including information and advice on nutrition, training, behavior, and socialization.
Schedule your puppy for their first exam as soon as possible. Until your puppy has received a series of vaccines, they are susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases. We will make sure your new dog is protected against Rabies, Distemper, and Parvovirus, among other diseases. Your puppy will also need to be tested and treated for parasites, which are extremely common in young dogs. We will get your puppy started on heartworm and flea prevention and discuss our recommendations for diet.
Our kitten wellness program is designed to help get your kitten started on the right path to a long and healthy life. The first few months are a critical period in your kitten’s development, and we can give you the support and tools necessary to help them grow into a well-mannered, healthy cat, including information and advice on nutrition, litterbox training, and behavior.
Schedule your kitten for their first exam as soon as possible. Until your kitten has received a series of vaccines, he or she is susceptible to many serious but preventable diseases. We will make sure your new kitten is protected against Rabies and FVR-CP, and Leukemia. We recommend testing for certain diseases, like FIV & Feline Leukemia around 12 weeks of age. In addition, your kitten will need to be tested and treated for parasites, which are common in young cats.
Bringing your pet in for an annual diagnostic and wellness checkup can help reassure you that your dog or cat is healthy or help us detect hidden diseases or conditions early. Early detection can improve the prognosis of many diseases, keep medical costs down, and help your pet live longer.
During your pet’s wellness exam, we will perform a physical assessment, checking your dog or cat from nose to tail. We will also make sure your pet receives appropriate vaccinations and preventives. We will perform a diagnostic workup, which may include blood, fecal, and urine tests to check for parasites and underlying diseases. We may also recommend that your pet receive dental care. When your pet is nearing his or her senior years, we will recommend a baseline exam and diagnostic workup, so we’ll know what’s normal for your pet. This will enable us to keep track of any changes.
Because you spend the most time with your pet, you are your pet’s expert, as well as his or her greatest advocate. Please let us know if you’ve noticed any physical or behavioral changes in your pet, as well as any other concerns you might have.
As dogs and cats get older, they need more attention and special care. Senior status varies depending on your pet’s breed and size. Smaller dogs tend to live longer than larger dogs, and cats generally live longer than dogs. We can help you determine what life stage your pet is in.
Diagnosing diseases and certain conditions early is important throughout a pet’s life, but it becomes even more critical when your dog or cat enters his or her senior years. The risks of arthritis, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, hormone disorders, and kidney and liver problems all increase with age. In addition, dogs and cats may not show any signs of even serious diseases until they are quite advanced.
We can treat many symptoms that are commonly attributed to age, including those associated with cognitive dysfunction syndrome (similar to Alzheimer’s in humans). We can also improve your pet’s quality of life in many ways: by identifying and preventing or reducing pain, recommending an appropriate nutrition and exercise plan, and suggesting environmental modifications to keep your pet comfortable.
We absolutely love the staff and our experiences here. They are very attentive and friendly. They answer all of our questions and we don’t feel rushed during our appointments. I highly recommend the BrownDog Lodge Veterinary Clinic!
We would be happy to answer all of your questions.
