Pet Exams At New Shackle Island Veterinary Hospital

If you are a proud cat or dog owner, caring for your pet is of the utmost importance so they stay in the best of health. Part of the caring process is bringing your pet to see our veterinarian when necessary. New Shackle Island Veterinary Hospital is available to provide several services when it comes to caring for pets. Here is a summary of the importance of making appointments for your pet to obtain care for specific instances.

Senior Pet Wellness Checks

When a pet ages, its requirements in care increases. It is important to bring your dog or cat to our veterinarian for routine senior checks to ensure your pet is as healthy as possible. Our vet will discuss dietary needs for your pet's stage of life and will conduct a complete exam to rule out any medical conditions that require intervention. Blood work, X-rays, and inspections of the eyes are also conducted to ensure your pet is not suffering from a hidden ailment. Our veterinarian may recommend bringing your aging dog or cat to our facility more than once a year for optimal health.

Treating Illness As Needed

As your pet ages, their immune system is not as strong, making them more susceptible to illnesses. For this reason, it is best to keep an eye on your pet for symptoms of sickness on a regular basis. If your pet is having trouble with their digestive system, often shown by vomiting or elimination problems, make an appointment for a checkup right away. Respiratory problems, eye infections, and lethargy also necessitate a visit to our vet to obtain proper treatment.

Preventative Care During Pet Exams

Our veterinarian offers preventative care procedures during routine Pet Exams. This includes the administering of immunizations to help thwart the contracting of a disease as well as steps taken to keep parasites from inflicting your pet. If necessary, dietary changes are discussed to help keep your pet's nutritional needs met during their elder years.
