Wellness & Vaccinations

Do you know what it takes to keep your pet happy and healthy for life?

Helping your pet achieve a lifetime of health and vitality begins with a commitment to wellness care. Routine checkups and preventative medicine allow us to keep illnesses at bay and catch problems when they’re still easily treatable.

At South Shore Veterinary Hospital, we believe that wellness care should be the foundation of every pet’s health regimen. Our services are designed to support all of your companion’s needs and adapt accordingly over the years. We offer puppy and kitten wellness as well as adult and senior health care. Let’s work together to help your loved one thrive!

What is wellness care?

In short, wellness visits are just like the annual checkups you have with your own doctor. At each appointment, the vet will examine your pet thoroughly to make sure his or her body is working properly. This allows us to develop a health profile for your pet that we can use to identify changes during subsequent visits. Early detection of disease can mean a much better prognosis for your loved one. It can also save you money since managing illness in its early stages is much less expensive than treating it once it has progressed.

An ounce of prevention…

Not only can wellness care help us to catch health problems early, but it also provides the opportunity to prevent illness whenever possible. During a visit, the doctor will ask you questions about your pet’s lifestyle, including behavior, appetite and exercise. This allows us to identify your companion’s risk factors, which we can then use to develop a preventative care plan. We’ll include such important things as vaccinations, parasite control, nutrition and more. All of this can protect your pet against many common ailments that can affect companion animals.

Getting to know you…

Lastly, although just as important, wellness visits provide the ideal chance to get to know you and your pet better. At South Shore Veterinary Hospital, we firmly believe that the foundation of good veterinary care is the relationship we share with our clients and patients. We encourage you to ask questions and bring up any concerns you may have so that we can discuss them with you. The more we come to understand your pet’s unique needs, the more precise and effective the care we can deliver.

Give us a call and let’s design the perfect plan to bring out the very best in your animal friend.
