Wellness & Vaccinations

If you’re like most of us, you want to see your cherished pet live as many happy, healthy years as possible. The best way to achieve this goal is to make a lifelong commitment to wellness care. These regular check ups allow us to both monitor your pet’s current health and manage that health over time.

The truth is, even animals that appear to be perfectly healthy may actually be harboring a dangerous secret. Many diseases and serious medical conditions show few outward signs and symptoms and subsequently can go undetected until it’s too late. By examining your pet at least once a year, our doctors are able to identify the signs of illness and disease right away so it can be addressed before it has a chance to develop further. This early detection can add years to your companion’s life!

Oakridge Animal Hospital offers comprehensive wellness care for animals of all ages and breeds. During a wellness visit, we’ll examine your pet, check to make sure that everything is functioning properly and take a number of preventative measures, such as vaccinations and parasite control, to keep your pet safe from many of the dangers and risks that may harm them. We’ll also discuss and provide recommendations for such important topics as nutrition and weight management, microchip identification, behavior, spay/neuter procedures and anything else deemed necessary for keeping your pet happy and healthy.

Wellness visits also provide our team with the opportunity to get to know you and your pet, and allow your animal companion to become comfortable with us and with visiting the vet. The better we understand your pet’s unique needs, and the more at ease he or she feels with us, the better we’ll be able to deliver the most customized, effective care possible throughout his or her lifetime.

We recommend that healthy adult animals visit us for a wellness check at least once a year. Puppies, kittens, senior animals, and pets with existing health issues or illnesses need more frequent checkups.

We’re also happy to work with you to create an individualized wellness program, including a vaccination and prevention protocol customized specifically to your pet. Call us today to schedule your pet’s wellness exam. Let us help your cherished animal friend enjoy a lifetime of good health!
