Pet Wellness Care: Preventing Illness & Maintaining Health
Our four-legged family members grow very rapidly from one life stage to the next, which is why pet wellness care is so important for their continued good health. To keep the pets of White House and surrounding areas in peak condition, we provide treatments selected and measured according to their specific needs.
The purpose of pet wellness care is to prevent illnesses from developing and maintain a routine that promotes well-being and longevity. At Orchard Park Animal Hospital, we recommend annual wellness visits to best support our patients' health and vitality.
Starting Puppies & Kittens Off Right
Within the first 6-8 weeks of life, your puppy or kitten should be brought in to see us for their first wellness exam. This involves a nose-to-tail evaluation and a fecal test to check for any sign of intestinal parasites, which are common in pets at this age. Furthermore, your veterinarian will want to cover a variety of topics with you, including:
Keeping Your Adult Pet Healthy
Adult dogs and cats require yearly maintenance to stay in the best possible shape. During annual visits we include blood work to assess blood chemistries and organ function, and screen for diseases such as heartworm and Lyme.

Core and lifestyle vaccines recommended for their care will also be administered at each visit. Furthermore, you can request a refill on your pet's parasite preventives, which should be given year-round--be sure to let us know if you need to stock up.
Caring for Your Senior Pet
Senior pets need additional care and attention from their veterinarian. Like us, they can develop various physical ailments and be vulnerable to disease in their later years. Along with yearly exams, we include blood work to assess their bones, blood chemistry and organ function. Detecting and diagnosing diseases in their early stages is vital to keeping your senior pet comfortable and healthy.
