Wellness Exams & Vaccinations

Wellness Exams & Vaccinations

Your pet’s health is our number one priority, which is why for most pets, we recommend annual wellness exams to ensure your animal companion remains in good health. If your pet is a senior–over seven for dogs, over nine for cats–we strongly suggest twice-yearly exams and blood screenings. That’s because pets age more rapidly than humans, meaning disease and illness develop faster as well.

New Smyrna Beach Animal Medical Center’s veterinarian-performed physical exams comprehensively assess every aspect of your pet’s health. Wellness exams typically include:

  • Ear exam
  • Eye exam
  • Rectal exam
  • Dental exam
  • Skeletal exam
  • Reproductive system exam
  • Internal health evaluation
  • Neurological evaluation
  • Cardiovascular evaluation
  • Nutrition consultation
  • Behavior counseling

Vaccinations

Vaccinating your pet is a relatively inexpensive but essential way to protect his or her health. In addition to preventing many life-threatening illnesses, vaccinations can prevent diseases prevalent in wildlife and those that can be passed to humans. It’s important to administer vaccinations when pets are puppies and kittens because their young immune systems are still developing and need protection to stay healthy. 

While any medical treatment involves some degree of risk, in the case of vaccinations, the benefits far outweigh any potential side effects. Adverse reactions are rare and usually mild and short-term when they do occur. 

Taking care of your precious pet’s health starts with a thorough veterinary exam. To schedule an appointment for your pet, call us at 386-427-3431.
