Offering Wellness Care, Vaccinations, & More for Pet Owners in Charlotte, NC

There are many benefits of bringing in your pet into our animal hospital for a yearly wellness examination or checkup. These visits are an excellent opportunity for our friendly staff to conduct a thorough physical examination and develop a health profile for your pet. This information helps us identify current medical problems and any other issues that can affect your pet’s health and their quality of life later on.

During a wellness checkup, our experienced veterinarian will examine fifteen parameters and evaluates your pet’s weight and body condition. Our animal clinic staff will ask you questions about your pet’s behavior, appetite, exercise habits, and regular activities at home. This is also an excellent time for us to discuss any routine diagnostic testing that may benefit your pet or to recommend any vaccinations that may be due. If your pet seems healthy, a wellness examination acts a baseline from which our team will be able to note any changes, such as weight gain or loss or other subtle changes that may not be evident at home.

Wellness visits are also valuable opportunities for early detection of illnesses and allow us to address health issues before they progress. Our team cares about your pet's well-being as so this visit is also a great opportunity for you to ask any questions or concerns you may have about your pet’s health, diet, or behavior.
