Maintaining your pet’s overall health and well-being is no easy task. Fortunately, the team at Arlington Dog and Cat Hospital can provide the necessary care to help ensure your canine or feline companion remains happy and healthy so they can spend more time making memories by your side. We provide wellness exams for pets of all ages to ensure your dog or cat lives a long and healthy life.
Adult Dog and Cat Wellness Exams
Here at Arlington Dog & Cat we recommend regular pet wellness exams to allow our team to evaluate your dog or cat and provide a clean bill of health. Our team can:
- Administer any required vaccinations to help protect your pet from serious illness or disease
- Recommend year-round parasite control protocols to keep your pet safe from fleas, ticks, heartworms, and offer yearly fecal exams for adult dogs to check for intestinal parasites
- Perform blood tests for adult cats to assess for any underlying issues that may otherwise go unnoticed
Caring for Pets at Every Age
The care your pet receives at our animal hospital is tailored to their specific needs, including their age group. Puppies and kittens require thorough care to set them up for a long and healthy life, whereas geriatric pets require closer monitoring to detect any diseases they may become vulnerable to as they age.
Puppy and Kitten Care
If you just welcomed a new puppy or kitten into your home, congratulations! Arlington Dog and Cat Hospital can offer proper guidance and care to make certain your puppy and kitten has the best possible start to their new life with you. Your veterinarian will perform a complete physical examination before providing the initial set of puppy and kitten shots between six to eight weeks of age. We can also perform parasite screenings and administer deworming medication as a preventative measure.
Caring for Geriatric Pets
As your beloved companion ages, their health may change as well. That is why scheduling senior pet wellness exams each year is vital to your geriatric pet’s well-being. Pets become more susceptible to certain illnesses as they grow older, and the team at Arlington Dog and Cat Hospital can help your pet ease into their golden years by regularly evaluating their health to check for any signs of illness or disease and provide swift and effective treatment.
Providing Behavioral Counseling
Is your pet exhibiting unwanted behavior such as excessive barking, chewing, scratching, or digging? Our veterinarians can offer guidance on how to correct negative behaviors including spraying, house soiling, aggression and more. We can help assess and manage your pet’s behavior and restore order to your household.
Discerning the Best Diet for Your Pet
Our dogs and cats rely on us for many of their individual needs, including proper diet and nutrition. With so many options for pet food out there, it can be difficult to decide what is best for your pet. The team at Arlington Dog and Cat Hospital can offer advice on meeting your companion’s nutritional needs throughout every stage of life by considering their dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance, performance, and the senior years.
