wellness_careFew things are harder for pet owners than watching their beloved companions struggle with an illness. But while some health events can’t be helped, many of them can. Preventative wellness is the smartest, simplest and most efficient way to keep your pets feeling good and enjoying optimal health while minimizing the risk of future major health crises or chronic problems. That’s why our veterinarians at Snow Animal Health Care are proud to provide wellness care for your pets.

Our pet wellness services include:

  • Wellness Exams – Regular wellness exams are the first line of defense for protecting your pet’s health. Your veterinarian can examine your friend from snout to tail for any signs of skin diseases, eye/ear problems, obesity, behavioral abnormalities and other issues that might require earliest possible treatment.
  • Laboratory – In-house laboratory facilities provide for serum chemistry, hematology, serology, urinalysis and parasite testing. We also utilize commercial veterinary laboratories for specialized diagnostics and consultations. Blood tests allow us to screen for a variety of diseases and disorders, from systemic illnesses and organ failure to parasitic infestations. The sooner we identify any lurking problems, the sooner we can prescribe the correct treatment to get them under control.
  • Flea And Tick Prevention – Your pet should have round-the-clock protection against fleas and ticks, which not only irritate the skin but can also spread serious diseases. We can provide that protection through a program of monthly medication.
  • Heartworm Testing And Prevention – Heartworm, a parasitic invasion of the heart and lungs, can be fatal to your pet. We test for heartworm so we can provide the appropriate treatment as early as possible. But treatment is a complex affair for dogs and a risky one for cats, so Our veterinarian also provides medications to prevent infestations from occurring.
  • Microchipping – ID tags can be lost or torn off of collars, but a microchip always remains under your pet’s skin. This tiny transmitter shares your pet’s unique ID information when scanned, allowing whoever finds him to contact you.
  • Nutritional Counseling And Weight Control – Pets need a precise mix of nutrients to maintain optimal health; we can advise you on how and what to feed your special pal. If your pet is overweight, we can recommend a customized dietary and exercise plan to help him avoid the dangers of obesity.
  • Vaccinations – Vaccinations against specific disease threats such as distemper and rabies can spur your pet’s body to develop critical, possibly lifesaving immunity. But vaccinations need to be updated from time to time so the protection doesn’t wear off. That’s why your veterinarian also provides vaccination update reminders so you’ll always know when it’s time for that next booster shot.
