Wellness & Vaccinations

Have you ever fallen into the trap of thinking that because your pet seems healthy enough, there’s really no reason to bring them to the vet? Maybe you should just cancel that upcoming appointment and just reschedule when your pet is sick or injured. It’s really no big deal, right?

To the contrary, the single most important thing you, as a caring and responsible pet owner, can do for your animal companion is to make a commitment to ongoing wellness care. In fact, wellness care is the most effective way to help your pet enjoy many happy, healthy years, which is the ultimate goal of every loving pet parent.

Because companion animals age at a much faster rate than humans do, it’s critical that they receive a thorough check up at least once a year, regardless of whether they appear to be perfectly healthy or not.

Wellness checks allow us to manage your pet’s current health, and to monitor that health over time so that any changes that occur can be addressed right away, before they become a problem. Oftentimes a pet that appears to be in good health may actually be suffering from the beginning stages of an illness or disease. When we are able to catch that condition early, your pet will have a much better chance at a positive outcome. We cannot do this without adequate wellness care.

Alpine at Noah’s Ark Animal Hospital offers customized wellness services for pets of all ages. This care is designed to meet your pet’s precise health care needs each and every time they visit. As animals age, their needs, lifestyles and risk factors change. The wellness care at Alpine at Noah’s Ark is designed to adapt right along with these changes so that every time your pet comes in for a check up, he or she will receive the exact care needed at that very moment, whether it’s a first round of vaccinations for your new puppy or kitten, advanced health care for your adult cat or dog, or specialized geriatric care for your senior pet.

Our wellness services are extremely thorough, allowing us to provide the best available care to each patient we serve. Your pet will receive a comprehensive physical exam, through which we’ll evaluate them from nose to tail to ensure that everything is functioning just as it should be. We’ll check your pet’s weight and discuss with you his or her lifestyle and habits at home so that we can get a more complete picture of your pet’s needs and risk factors. We’ll also cover such important matters as vaccinations, parasite control, nutrition and fitness, behavior and anything else deemed important in keeping your companion happy and healthy.

Finally, although perhaps most importantly, routine wellness visits allow us to get to know you and your pet on a more personal level. We’re happy to answer all of your questions and discuss your concerns, because we feel that as your pet’s caretaker, you are an important part of their health care team. What’s more, the better we know and understand your pet, the better we’ll be able to provide the most customized, effective care possible throughout his or her lifetime.

Don’t fall into the trap of thinking your pet only needs to see the vet when he or she is sick or injured. Make a commitment to ongoing wellness care and give your cherished companion the best chance at enjoying a long, happy and healthy life!
