Yearly Wellness Exam
At Woodland Animal Hospital, we feel that yearly wellness exams are the cornerstone of your pets' preventative care. Your pet will receive a thorough physical examination, and we will discuss how he or she has done over the past year. For our senior pets, we recommend annual bloodwork as a tool for early screening for a variety of diseases. This may include a chemistry panel, complete blood count and/or a thyroid panel. All routine bloodwork is done in-house in about 15 minutes, so you'll have the results before you leave your appointment.
We believe that every dog and cat has individual health care needs, which is why we tailor his or her yearly vaccinations to best suit his or her needs. Vaccinations boost your pets immunity to help prevent many diseases, including distemper virus, parvo virus, adenovirus (hepatitis), parainfluenza, Leptosporosis, Bordetella (Kennel Cough), and rabies in dogs, and upper respiratory diseases, feline leukemia and rabies in cats. We only use cat-specific vaccines with our feline patients.
A microchip is a small metal pellet placed just under the skin by the shoulders. It contains a unique code that when read by a scanning device that can help return a lost pet home. Because of the large needle used to place a microchip, we recommend placement be done during anesthesia, such as during a spay or neuter, if possible.
