Wellness Exams and Preventive Care

Here at Hope Animal Hospital, we recommend that your pet visits the veterinarian every 6 months for a wellness exam to stay healthy.  Listed below are a few examples of wellness and preventive care we recommend.

For cats and dogs:

Fecal testing for intestinal parasites and a general dewormer every 6 months (For more information on intestinal worms, click here)

Flea, tick, and heartworm prevention all year round (Revolution for cats, Vectra and Heartgard for Dogs; for more information on Heartworm disease, click here).  If your pet hasn't been on prevention, they must be tested before beginning it.

Rabies vaccinations (For more information on Rabies, click here)

Maintaining good oral health (for more information on Dental Health, click here)

Maintaining a healthy weight (For more information on Obesity, click here)
For older pets, we do recommend checking their bloodwork on a regular basis to monitor their internal organ functions.

For Dogs:

There are several vaccines to consider for your dog.  There are two types - vaccines that are considered "core" vaccines (Distemper/Parvo and Rabies) and "non-core" vaccines (Leptospirosis, Lyme, Bordetella, and Canine Flu).  For more information on each of the following vaccines, just click the name.
