Pet Wellness Care
Pets age much faster than we do, which is why it’s so important for them to have a comprehensive wellness exam at least once a year. Here at Bienville Animal Medical Center, we believe regular preventive care is the best way to help a pet live a long, healthy life. There are many benefits to annual pet wellness exams, including:
- Early diagnosis of pet health problems
- Opportunity to discuss concerns or ask questions
- Encourage a good relationship between your pet and the veterinary staff
- Improved quality of life for your pet
During your pet’s wellness exam, we will perform a nose-to-tail assessment and administer any necessary vaccinations. We’ll also address any questions you have regarding your pet’s diet, behavior, and other at-home activities. The information gathered at your pet’s wellness exam is critical in helping us identify any issues that may affect your pet’s health and quality of life. If necessary, we can recommend advanced diagnostic testing in the form of X-rays or lab testing to examine your pet internally.
Parasite prevention is another critical component of pet wellness care. Mosquitoes, ticks, and fleas can all cause health problems for your pet, including heartworm, Lyme disease, and flea allergy dermatitis. Even indoor pets can be at risk for certain parasitic diseases, since fleas and mosquitoes can easily make their way into your home. That’s why we recommend that you keep your pet on an ongoing monthly preventive medication regimen. During your pet’s appointment, we will assess your pet’s needs and tailor a preventive care plan just for them.
