Wellness care focuses on prevention and intervention. Wellness exams and laboratory profiles are designed to promote health and catch issues before they become major health problems. It is generally more economical and definitely better for your pet to be proactive with yearly exams. Abnormal behavior issues can be caused from underlying health problems that go undetected. By thoroughly assessing your pet, the veterinarians and staff at Encanto Pet Clinic can make recommendations prior to the onset of illness or disease.
A wellness exam includes a thorough examination of all body systems, and may include lab work such as fecal exams, urinalysis, diet and nutritional consultation, parasite screening and prevention, heartworm and other blood tests. Recommendations are individualized and re-evaluated at each visit.
