in Chadds Ford, PA

Routine wellness exams are the cornerstone of your pet’s health and well-being. Dogs and cats often try to hide signs of illness, making it difficult to tell when your pet is feeling sick until the disease is much further progressed. With regular cat and dog exams, we’re able to detect underlying illness before physical symptoms are present and treat it before it gets worse.

Keep your pet in the best of health with annual exams.

Why Annual Cat & Dog Exams Are Important

Cats and dogs age several years for every one of ours. This means that a lot can change for them in a year’s time. Illness, age-related problems, allergies, and many other issues can develop quite quickly and without yearly exams, can potentially go unnoticed. With annual vet visits, we’re able to give your pet a thorough and thoughtful exam that assesses their health and uncovers any underlying problems.

A Regional Health Problem for Pets: Lyme Disease

In Chadds Ford and greater New England, Lyme disease, a tick-borne illness, is a common concern for our pets. Dogs are most vulnerable to the disease because they are more likely to be outdoors than cats, and they often accompany us in areas where ticks are prevalent. Lyme disease is transmitted during the period of time while the tick is engorging themselves on their host’s blood. Due to the prevalence of ticks infected with Lyme disease in our area, we highly recommend the Lyme disease vaccine for dogs as well as tick preventatives for dogs and cats all year long.
