Physical Examination

Your dog will be examined by our veterinarian from nose to tail for tumors and signs of pain or arthritis. We will assess her overall appearance. Your dog’s heart and lungs will be listened to for abnormalities. Her eyes, ears, nose, and mouth will be evaluated as well.

Consultation

You’ll discuss medical history, behavior changes, lifestyle, and nutrition with our veterinarian. You will have an opportunity to ask questions and address any of your concerns.

Vaccinations

Vaccinations prevent several common bacterial and viral infections. For dogs, we vaccinate to prevent distemper, parvovirus, hepatitis, and rabies. Depending on your dog’s lifestyle, vaccines protecting against leptospirosis and bordetella may be indicated and are included in our Plans.

Proactive Wellness Profile

The wellness profile includes a heartworm screen, tick disease screen, intestinal parasite screen, and an age-based blood screen. Additional screening tests are included on the Advanced and Optimum Plans for Dogs.

Heartworm Screen

A heartworm screen is included in our Plans. Heartworm disease is a serious disease in dogs. Heartworms can cause severe lung disease, heart failure, and damage to other organs in the body. They are spread by the bite of an infected mosquito. It’s important to screen for heartworm disease and eliminate heartworm larvae with a monthly preventative. Learn more about heartworm disease from the American Heartworm Society.

Tick Disease Screen

A tick disease screen is included in our Plans. This test screens for Lyme Disease, Ehrlichia, and Anaplasma. These diseases are transmitted from the bite of an infected tick. Lyme Disease and Anaplasma do not have high prevalence in our area.

However, in Taney County, nearly 25% of dogs screened for Ehrlichia have a positive result. Dogs can become infected within hours of a tick’s initial attachment. Symptoms of Ehrlichiosis include anemia, bleeding episodes, lameness, neurological problems, and swollen limbs. Learn more about ehrlichia.

Intestinal Parasite Screen

An intestinal parasite screen is included in our Plans. Intestinal parasites are common in dogs. They can cause a wide range of symptoms, including diarrhea, vomiting, weight loss, and anemia. Some types of parasites, including roundworms and hookworms, can be transmitted from dogs to humans. Routine testing and monthly treatment protects your dog, as well as you and your family!

Proactive Blood Screen

The proactive blood screen is a preventive testing method that provides a comprehensive assessment of their overall health. By analyzing various blood parameters, we can detect underlying medical conditions early, allowing for timely intervention and management. Conducting the screen when the dog is healthy establishes baseline values, which serve as reference points for future comparisons. Regular annual screenings enable us to track changes in your dog’s health over time, facilitating proactive care and ensuring optimal well-being.
