What to Expect with Pet Exams

Pet exams are the perfect opportunity to fully assess your pet’s well-being and for you to discuss any changes in their health, behavior, or lifestyle. Your pet's needs will change as they age, so we tailor every visit to meet those needs. At your wellness appointment, you can expect the following:

Providing Intestinal Parasite, Flea, Tick, & Heartworm Prevention

Another essential part of pet wellness care involves parasite prevention. We highly recommend year-long protection because many of these critters can be active all year long. Ticks can be active at temperatures just above freezing, while fleas will often take refuge in your warm home for the winter, putting your pets and family at risk. Mosquitoes, which transmit heartworm disease, do die off in the cold, but they can be active any time of year in North Carolina due to our warm climate and mild winters. Fleas, ticks, and heartworms all pose serious dangers to your pet, including disease transmission. In addition, intestinal worm larvae are invisible in the environment but can be ingested by dogs and even indoor cats. Some of these parasites can even be transmitted to people. With year-long parasite prevention, you can keep your pet safe. Ask your veterinarian about our options for flea, tick, and heartworm prevention at your next appointment.
