Our veterinary clinic recommends that all pets receive an exam a minimum of once a year. This will allow us to establish baseline levels of your pet’s health and gives us a chance to look for early signs of disease. Annual parasite screenings include testing for potentially deadly heartworm disease and intestinal parasites, some of which are transmissible to humans.
New Puppies & Kittens
Puppies and Kittens receive their first set of immunizations at 6 to 8 weeks of age. We will see your pet every 2 to 4 weeks until they are 16 weeks old. During these visits, we will discuss heartworm and flea prevention as well as nutrition, behavior and house training.
Life Stage Exam
Pets age faster than people and can be considered “seniors” at just the age of 7. Veterinarians at the Animal Hospital of Northwood are well equipped with the knowledge and diagnostic tools to identify age related problems and formulate strategies to allow our pets to live longer and healthier lives. We recommend that our senior pets are examined twice a year. A number of diseases common to the aging process can be treated more effectively when diagnosed early.
Pets have different life styles and risks of exposure. Vaccine schedules are tailored to your individual pet. We will ask questions about their life and recommend an appropriate program accordingly.
