We believe that the relationship established between our veterinarians and your pet is just as valuable for your pet’s health as any vaccine or medication.
Having familiarity with an animal’s health allows for subtle variations to be noted and addressed. A good veterinarian will always consider the owner’s perspective on their pet’s physical health. They are, after all, the person who sees that animal day-in, day-out. In turn, the more familiar your veterinarian is with your pet, the more likely we can pick up on trends in their health and wellness.
We at WPVC, encourage and support routine wellness exams, in addition to maintaining up-to-date vaccination or vaccine titres. Other areas that we like to evaluate to ensure your pet’s wellness include examinations for fecal parasites, annual heartworm testing, and monitoring of body condition scores.
Congratulations on your newest addition to your family!
Getting a new puppy or kitten is very exciting. We know that you have a lot to look forward to, including years of great companionship. We also know that to raise a wonderful and well-behaved adult pet, they are a lot of work and responsibility. For this reason, we are here to help you achieve this goal!
We always recommend a full nose-to-tail examination of your newest addition. We want to make sure that your pet is as healthy as possible. We also want him or her to get used to visiting our hospital. We don’t want it to be a stressful for your pet.
Our staff at Wild Peach Veterinary Clinic is here to help you raise your new puppy or kitten. We are well prepared to discuss many topics with you including vaccinations, house-training, nutrition, behavior, socialization, spaying/neutering, and much more! Be sure to bring a list of any additional questions that you may have to your appointments so that they get answered.
We can’t wait to meet your newest family member!
We want to ensure that your best friend is the best that they can be!
To do this, we recommend routine examinations, even when your pet appears to be a healthy adult. It is very important to keep an eye on your pet’s weight. Too many pets are obese and that can cause some serious problems!
At the same time, our veterinarians will look for any potential problems that need to be dealt with. We are hoping to catch any problems before they become quite serious. The sooner that we diagnose a problem, the easier it is to fix!
Routine visits are also a time to catch up with you. We like to know how things are going at home and if you are having any problems. We will also make sure that your pet’s vaccinations are up-to-date It is also a good time to discuss preventative medicine, which is so important to keep your pet healthy. We can get you more flea and tick medications, heartworm medication, or anything else that you may need while you are in the office.
Cat’s are considered seniors around the 7-8 year mark as well.
The most common diseases we see that affects our older pets health include internal organ failure (heart, kidneys, liver), arthritis, obesity and dental disease.
Some of these disease processes can be caught early via routine blood screening conducted during your pet’s annual vaccination exam. Other’s may present more subtly and can be picked up during the exam itself.
Unfortunately, many of these disease processes cannot be cured, only managed. As such, we believe that together we can discuss what methods can be incorporated to slow down or manage the disease so your pet can continue to live a full and happy life.
