Pet Wellness Care for Companions in Auburn
Every pet deserves to have their own unique pet wellness care to treat their individual needs. At PetVet Animal Health Center, we strive to do just that. Whether you have a newborn, adult, or senior pet, their needs are vastly different and discovering their unique care plan is our priority.
Factors beyond their age such as lifestyle, breed, and temperament all play a role in determining the best care plan for them. When you bring your pet to PetVet, our skilled doctors will assess their health and decide the best way to promote their wellness and keep them healthy longer.
Care for Every Stage of Your Pet's Life
Puppy and Kitten Care
Puppies and kittens need a lot of extra TLC: they grow so quickly that problems can develop in a flash, especially due to their immature immune systems. Routine pet exams help us catch issues early so we can treat them before they become a serious problem.
At puppy and kitten pet exams we’ll assess:
- Dental health
- Eyes, ears, and nose
- Fur and skin
- Heart and lungs
- Abdomen, particularly for any lumps or bumps
- Joints to make sure everything is growing properly
Other considerations for your puppy or kitten include the timing for a spay and neuter surgery, vaccinations to prevent infection from contagious diseases, as well as parasite prevention and a head start on a good diet.
Adult Pet Wellness Care
As your pet reaches adulthood, their needs change considerably, and a pet’s lifestyle plays a role in their care. We offer lifestyle vaccines including Lyme, Bordetella, and Flue for dogs who are often boarded or spend significant time outdoors. For cats, especially those who go outdoors, we also highly recommend the feline leukemia vaccine. However, there are also a few overarching concerns that every pet, regardless of lifestyle, requires:
- Dental care – your adult pet’s dental health is a vital part of their pet wellness care plan. Good overall health begins and ends with a healthy mouth.
- Consistent vaccinations and parasite prevention – this keeps them happy and healthy throughout their adult years.
- Nutrition – proper nutrition based on life stage and current health status helps keep them at a healthy weight. Our team is here to advise you on a healthy diet for your pet.
Senior animals have a separate set of needs that tend to focus more on maintaining quality of life. Pet wellness care plans for senior pets often include medications and treatments to help with the aches and pangs of growing older such as:
- Dental disease
- Failing vision and hearing loss
- Kidney disease
