Supporting your pet’s healthy, active lifestyle is an important part of their wellness regimen. Pet wellness care involves setting a health baseline for your pet and maintaining that level throughout their life. We understand, however, that pets can become sick or injured just like we can. That’s why routine wellness visits are necessary—they enable us to create a comprehensive health history for your pet, and detect any hidden problems they might have. By conducting a thorough physical exam and performing routine blood screenings, we can make a record of your pet’s health status and compare it with past visits.

Wellness care has many parts, including vaccines, diagnostics, parasite prevention, and dentistry. Furthermore, Temperance Animal Hospital's primary goal is to preserve your pet’s good health by preventing disease and parasite infestations, and treating acute conditions before they become more serious.

What to Expect During Your Pet’s Wellness Visit

When you bring your pet in to see us, we will first check their weight, temperature and heart rate. This is followed by a full physical exam which includes checking their ears, eyes, nose, teeth, and limbs. We will also check their coat and inspect the skin for lumps, bumps and other abnormalities. If your pet is healthy, we can proceed with their vaccinations and any additional testing they might need.

Puppy and Kitten Exams

If you have a new puppy or kitten, you should bring a fresh fecal sample that we can test for parasites, along with any paperwork you were given during the adoption process. Many puppies and kittens are born with intestinal parasites, which they can acquire while in the womb or while nursing. “Worms” can be treated with proper medication and monitoring.

During this initial visit, we will want to discuss vaccines and learn more about your pet’s lifestyle to gauge possible future treatments. We will be glad to answer whatever questions you might have during this time, as raising a puppy or kitten takes a considerable amount of work and dedication. Furthermore, we can provide you with valuable information concerning diet, behavior, exercise, socialization, training, parasite prevention and much more.

Caring for Senior Pets

We recommend seeing our senior patients every six months for a full health evaluation and discussion of any problems that may have arisen between visits. To promote and encourage senior wellness, we have established a program called the Golden Paws Society. Enrolling in this program includes a membership fee along with discounts on diagnostic tests, two exams during the year, and dental care. To find out more about this program, call Temperance Animal Hospital at (734) 847-6751.

I just came from needing to put to sleep my Furst baby. These were the most caring, compassionate doctors and tech I've ever encountered. They turned this heartbreaking event into a positive, heartwarming memory that I will never forget.
