Wellness Care for Dogs
The canine wellness care programs at Randhurst Animal Hospital are designed to keep your dog healthy through quality preventative veterinary care. Preventative care is an essential part of your pet’s health and wellness, and our comprehensive wellness exams are designed to meet your pet’s specific needs and lifestyle.
Comprehensive Canine Wellness Exams
During the wellness exam we will review your dog’s medical history and perform a thorough physical examination. Our veterinarians will examine your pet for signs of pain or illness to screen for any underlying conditions. In addition to our wellness exams, we find annual blood work to be a very useful tool in disease prevention and early detection.
Vaccinations are a vital part of keeping your dog healthy and prevent potentially serious diseases. Every dog has a different lifestyle and needs to be given individual attention and consideration at vaccination time. At Randhurst Animal Hospital, our canine vaccination programs are specially tailored for every dog based on their age, health, and lifestyle.
Regular preventive dental care keeps your dog’s teeth and gums healthy and free of oral disease. We recommend regular professional dental cleanings, as well as frequent at-home care to keep your dog’s teeth and gums healthy. We will inspect your dog’s teeth and gums for tartar, plaque, tooth decay, infections, and signs of tooth weakness.
Nutrition & Weight Management
Your dog’s diet and weight are an important component of maintaining good health. During the exam, our veterinarians will review your dog’s diet to make sure they are getting the right amount of vitamins and nutrients. We will also review your pet’s play and exercise routine to ensure that your dog is getting an adequate amount of physical activity.
Preparing for the Exam
On the day of your pet’s appointment, we ask that you arrive with your dog on a leash or in a secure carrier, along with a recent stool sample (ideally less than 12 hours old).
