Want to know the secret to keeping your pet around for a long time?
Surely you’d love to see your pet live as long and happy a life as possible. At Northbrook Animal Hospital, we share that very same goal. That’s why we’ve invested a lot of time and effort into creating comprehensive wellness care. With each and every checkup, we will improve the chances of helping your loved one enjoy many fulfilling years.
What, exactly, is wellness care?
Wellness care involves bringing your pet in to be examined on a regular basis – usually twice a year. During this appointment, the doctor will check your pet, nose to tail, to make sure everything is functioning as it should be. Certain routine diagnostic tests, such as blood work, urinalysis, or fecal analysis, may also be recommended. All of these things help us to identify potential health concerns early. The sooner we can diagnose a problem, the quicker and more effectively we can treat it. This can vastly improve the prognosis for your loved one.
Another important component of wellness care is prevention. In order to keep your four-legged friend happy and healthy, we must take proactive measures to protect against common illnesses. Our team will develop a customized vaccination plan that is tailor-made for your pet based on his or her lifestyle and risk factors. We will also offer advice and recommendations on things like parasite control, diet and exercise, behavior and anything else we deem relevant.
Lastly, although equally important, wellness care helps us to develop an invaluable relationship with you and your pet. When we see and interact with your loved one on a regular basis, we will earn his or her trust. Not only does this make vet visits a more positive experience, but it allows us to create a more precise, individualized healthcare plan for your pet.
You adore your pet and want to enjoy many more years of healthy, happy companionship. Let’s work together to give him or her the greatest gift of all – a lifetime of good health!
