Our Preventative Healthcare Plans allow our attending veterinarians to offer a reward program, based on professional services, for preventative screening. Your veterinary team will evaluate your pet’s predominant breed, age, medical history, lifestyle, and condition to create a Health Risk Assessment (HRA)—identifying your pet’s risk for potential disease. During this evaluation, we can have a family discussion, creating actionable items and a vaccination plan. Our goal? To guard your pet against infectious diseases, and allow us to manage other non-infectious diseases or conditions should they occur.

  2. 4Dx Heartworm Screen (also checks for tick borne disease)

  3. Microscopic Fecal Flotation Exam

  4. An In-House Urinalysis

  5. A Mid-Age Metabolic Panel

  6. Annual Healthcare Planning (Based on Medical History, or Lifestyle)
