As your pet’s best friend, companion, and guardian, you know what’s best for them. However, there are times when you have to remember that your pet can’t tell you when something is wrong. This is where preventative measures come in, so you can make sure your pet stays happy and healthy. Our comprehensive physical exams are the best choice for us to prevent, diagnose and treat potential disease in its early stages before more noticeable symptoms develop.
At West Hills Veterinary Centre, we recommend annual wellness exams for young to middle-aged pets. For senior animals, we recommend twice-yearly exams. Our comprehensive exams assess every aspect of your pet’s health. These exams include checking:
- Reproductive and urinary system
- Lymphatic system
- Nose and throat
- Lung and pulmonary
- Nutrition consultations
- Internal health screenings
- Behavior counseling
Vaccinations are very important for pet prevention and wellness. Not every pet needs every vaccination, and not all vaccinations are the same. Over the years, vaccines against deadly diseases have helped save millions of pets and virtually eliminated certain fatal illnesses. However, many infectious diseases are still out there that pose a threat to unvaccinated pets.
At West Hills Veterinary Centre, we will tailor a vaccination schedule based on your pet’s specific needs. We evaluate each pet and determine their exposure risks and will recommend vaccines that benefit their lifestyle. Please keep in mind also that vaccine recommendations may change as your pet gets older or their lifestyle changes. We will consider all of these factors when updating your pet’s vaccination schedule.
Our veterinarians and staff understand that your pet is unique, and our goal is to always give you the best advice for keeping your pet healthy.
