Preventative Care and Wellness

Preventative Care and Wellness

Annual Examinations

     All pets should be examined at least annually by your veterinarian. Pets age about seven times as fast as we do, so older pets should be examined even more often. Examinations are critical to help veterinarians find disease early—the best time for them to be treated. Depending upon the age of your pet, blood tests or other diagnostics may be recommended as part of regular wellness care and disease prevention. Examinations also give you an opportunity to ask questions about your pet’s health.


Vaccinations

     Vaccinating your dog or cat protects him or her against a wide variety of infectious diseases. Your veterinarian will discuss with you a vaccination program that is appropriate for your particular pet. We understand that your pet is unique and needs a vaccination program specific to him or her.


Puppy and Kitten Plans

     Who doesn’t love to see healthy, happy puppies and kittens romping and rolling as they explore this whole new world before them? Aina Hou provides a package of services specially created to get puppies and kittens off on the right paw. The services include examinations, vaccinations, dewormings, and special nutrition consultations—all for one basic discounted fee.


Senior Care

     When your pet has been with you for many years—not only do they become irreplaceable members of the family, they also need a little extra care. As your pet grows older we recommend that “wellness visits” become more frequent and that we see your pet at least twice a year (every 6 months) for senior bloodwork and senior care. Bloodwork for seniors may include urinalysis, kidney and liver functions, complete blood cell counts, and thyroid functioning. It is important to have this bloodwork performed as it can uncover systemic abnormalities that a physical examination may not detect.
    Many older dogs suffer from osteoarthritis. Safe and effective pain medications can make these dogs comfortable and help live longer, happier lives with your family.


Heartworm and Parasite Prevention

All dogs in this area should be on an effective heartworm preventive year round. Administration is easier than ever and our online pharmacy offers auto ship as well as rebates and free shipping. Cats, too, should be treated for parasites on a regular basis.


Nutrition Counseling

    It has been our experience that certain physical problems with our pets stem from the types of foods they eat.
 We offer the following:
Obesity management
Diabetic management
GI Distress management
Allergy management
Organ insufficiency management
Urinary tract management


      As a member of your family, you want your dog or cat to remain a vital, loving part of your life for as long as possible. Wellness care and our dedicated client care technicians will contribute to maintaining the health of your four legged family member.
