Pet Wellness Care

Preventive services to maintain your pet’s well-being

Pet wellness care keeps pets healthy and prevents diseases and health problems before they occur. Many types of preventive care are available for pets, including regular veterinary check-ups, pet vaccinations, parasite prevention, dental care, and nutritional counseling.

At Hixson Pet Wellness Center, we believe pet wellness care is the cornerstone of your pet’s well-being. Rather than waiting for your pet to become sick and treating the symptoms, preventive treatments stop the potential for diseases before they happen.

Pet Wellness Exam

Regular pet wellness exams with a veterinarian are necessary for detecting and addressing health problems early. During these check-ups, the veterinarian will perform a physical exam, take the pet’s medical history, and guide you on proper pet nutrition, exercise, and other important aspects of pet care.

In addition to performing a physical exam, our team will perform preventive laboratory tests to examine your pet’s health. These tests help us analyze your pet’s internal health for signs of conditions needing treatment.

Parasite Prevention and Control

Parasite prevention and control keep your pet safe from potentially harmful parasites. Fleas, ticks, heartworm, and intestinal parasites can all cause serious health problems in pets, and some can also affect humans. Medications such as flea and tick prevention and heartworm preventatives can keep your pet parasite-free.

We also perform regular heartworm testing during all canine pet wellness exams to ensure your dog is safe from this potentially life-threatening condition. If we detect heartworms during testing, Dr. Jones will inform you about available treatment options.

Vaccinations to Boost Your Pet’s Immune System

Vaccinations are also essential to preventive care. They improve your pet’s immune system and protect them from potentially serious diseases such as rabies, distemper, and parvovirus. Visit our pet vaccinations page to learn more about the vaccines we provide.
