Pet Wellness Care for Longer Fuller Lives
At Roswell Veterinary Associates, we believe prevention and early screening are the keys to keeping your pet healthy. While pets do have shorter lifespans, modern veterinary care has been known to help lengthen them and improve pet wellness. Care through preventative measures helps your pet live a longer, happier life so that you have more time together. At our animal hospital, we focus on regular wellness exams and screenings, which are all a part of our preventative care plans.
We structure our preventative care plans on the specific life-stage of your pet. Each patient is assessed individually on factors such as species, breed, age, and environmental challenges. Learn more on our Preventative Care Plans page.
We place a strong emphasis on an annual health examination. Each year when your pet comes in, he or she will receive a comprehensive physical exam and age appropriate ancillary diagnostics (such as blood pressure screening, parasite tests, and bloodwork) to screen for early signs of disease.
Parasite and Infectious Disease Screening
The best way to treat a problem is to catch it early. We perform routine screenings on your pet in order to detect the signs of any issues as soon as they appear.
Screenings we perform:
This test allows us to screen for intestinal worms that may be present in your cat or dog. Intestinal parasites may cause diarrhea, weight loss, changes in hair coat, or vomiting.
With only a few drops of your pet's blood, this test allows us to check for heartworm disease and three major infectious diseases that are spread by ticks and mosquitoes.
A small sample of blood is all it takes! This test allows us to check for these immuno-suppressing diseases that create lifelong health issues and can even be fatal to our cats.
Vaccinations are a key element of protecting your pets from serious, potentially fatal diseases. At Roswell Veterinary Associates, we follow the American Animal Hospital Association and the American Association of Feline Practitioners pet vaccinations guidelines. From there, we customize a vaccine plan that best fits your pet’s lifestyle. For convenience and safety, we offer 3-year vaccines when appropriate.
Core vaccines for dogs include:
- DAPP (distemper, adenovirus, parvovirus, and parainfluenza)
- Bordetella (kennel cough)
Lifestyle vaccines for dogs include:
- Canine Influenza
Core vaccines for cats include:
- FVRCP (feline viral rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, and panleukopenia)
Lifestyle vaccines for cats include:
- FeLV (feline leukemia virus)
In-House Diagnostic Bloodwork
Our laboratory has all the bells and whistles to do almost any diagnostic in house. For pet wellness care, we typically perform bloodwork annually to assess any internal changes that could go unnoticed otherwise.
