We Count In Dog Years.
Though we are a full-service animal hospital, preventative medicine and dog and cat wellness care are our favorite parts of our job, because we get to form lasting bonds with our patients, watch them grow up, and care for them at every age and every stage of life.
During dog and cat wellness care visits, we like to spend time with your pet, providing expert, hands-on animal care. But we also like to spend time with you—you are the key to your pet’s well-being, so we use this time to help you better understand home health care for your pet and to offer tips and advice about how to care for your particular type and breed of animal. It’s also a great chance for you to ask us any questions you have about your pet’s health or behavior.
We serve Greenville, Taylors, and the surrounding areas. Bringing your pet to our animal hospital in Greenville for cat and dog annual check-ups, vaccinations, heartworm care, and other preventative medicine can save you a lot of money in the long-run. More importantly, dog and cat wellness care is the best way to ensure that your pet lives a long and healthy life. Not only are our pets unable to tell us how they really feel, animals are also better at hiding and handling pain than humans, making routine visits even more critical.
There are four main dog and cat wellness care services that we recommend you schedule at our Greenville animal hospital at least once a year to keep your pet happy and healthy, though more frequent visits are encouraged. Typically, all four of these services can be completed within the same annual check-up:
Remember, pets age much faster than us; a good physical exam is the most important part of your pet’s health. We recommend annual exams for pets under 7 years and an exam every 6 months for senior age pets. For pets with chronic conditions, we recommend semi-annual health exams for better monitoring.
Our vets highly recommend annual blood, urine and fecal testing for all of our patients less than 7 years old. Pets older than 7 are considered senior and require more monitoring. For them we recommend annual chest x-rays, and abdominal ultrasound, in addition to blood, urine, and fecal analysis, at our animal hospital in Greenville.
Our highly trained veterinarians tailor vaccination protocols for dogs and cats based on their needs and environment.
Internal and external parasites are a big problem in the southeast, where the weather stays warmer for longer, and where the ground stays soft and damp through much of the year due to heavy rains. At minimum, we recommend keeping your pet up-to-date on monthly heartworm / intestinal parasite prevention year round. Flea and tick prevention is also extremely important and usually recommended 10-12 months a year.
Many diseases begin in the mouth, making good oral hygiene essential. We recommend a yearly cleaning at our animal hospital in Greenville in addition to at-home dental care.
Our laser can effectively treat pets with arthritis, reducing both pain and inflammation. It can also speed healing for wounds, tendon injuries, and soft tissue injuries.
Our veterinarians are trained to handle routine behavioral issues as well as help with regular training goals. We also work with external behavioral experts if we feel your pet’s particular issue is beyond our expertise.
We carry a full line of Purina Veterinary Diets for all stages of life, as well as prescription diets formulated to treat specific medical conditions.
Our microchips also include free life-long registration.
Did you know that you can protect your pet from heartworms and intestinal parasites for less than $10 a month? Our Greenville animal hospital includes an online pharmacy that makes parasite prevention, allergy prevention, and other medications affordable.
