Pet Wellness Care
Preventative wellness care is designed to keep pets safe and healthy as they grow. At Greystone Animal Hospital in Burnaby, BC, we offer comprehensive wellness care services for pets of all ages. Routine care enables your Burnaby veterinarian to stay on top of your pet’s health by catching diseases in their early stages or preventing them altogether. Here’s how ongoing wellness care can benefit your pet.
Annual Wellness Exams
At Greystone Animal Hospital, we encourage pet owners to schedule annual wellness exams for their pets. These exams consist of a thorough nose to tail checkup of your pet, including joints, heart and lungs, signs of abnormalities, infections, or diseases. Depending on the results of your pet’s checkup, our veterinarian may order blood, skin, urine, or fecal tests to confirm prospective health issues or internal problems.
During this visit, we’ll inquire about your pet’s lifestyle and dietary habits and make recommendations, if needed, for improvement. If you have questions concerning your pet’s health or behavior, we’re more than happy to get these answered to alleviate any concerns you may have or give you valuable tips on pet care.
Vaccinations and Parasite Control
During a wellness exam, we’ll review your pet’s vaccination schedule to ensure it’s up to date. Vaccines are extremely important to your pet’s health. We’ll also test your pet for parasites and heartworms, ensuring that he has year-round protection against these pests.
Dental services are an important aspect of ongoing wellness care as your pet’s oral health will affect his overall health. Annual dental checkups and cleanings, along with proper home care can prevent plaque and tartar buildup on your pet’s teeth. This buildup is responsible for causing dental issues like tooth infections, abscesses, discolored teeth, and gum disease. Routine pet dental care is the key to healthier teeth in your pet.
Spay and Neuter Surgeries
If you don’t plan to breed your pet, we offer spay and neuter procedures to prevent unwanted pregnancies. These surgeries are safe and effective in sterilizing your pet.
Senior Pet Care
We recommend semi-annual wellness exams for senior pets to monitor their delicate health. As your pet ages, he’s more prone to health issues that affect his appetite, mobility, vision, hearing, and other body functions. Quality vet care can help improve your pet’s quality of life in his senior years.
Puppy and Kitten Care
We also offer puppy and kitten care for younger pets. This includes routine checkups for growth and development, heartworm treatment, and vaccines for baby pets.
