A Foundation for Optimal Health

Annual wellness visits help to build your pet's preventive healthcare history and establish a strong foundation for a healthy life. For many pets, an annual checkup with routine lab work is an excellent way to manage overall health. However, for older pets and those with pre-existing conditions, scheduling appointments every six months is more effective.

When you visit, our team can help you address considerations like preventive care, dental care, pain management, and other overall health issues. It’s never too late to start building a foundation of good health, so call us today to book your first wellness visit. If you have a nervous pet, here’s some information to help you prepare for your appointment ahead of time.

Complete Wellness Care for Overall Health

Each wellness visit begins with a comprehensive understanding of the patient’s lifestyle and health history. This can include evaluating your pet’s medical records, age, diet, and where they reside throughout the year.

Your veterinarian will perform a nose-to-tail physical exam at every wellness and preventive visit. You know your pet best and a wellness visit is a perfect time to discuss any physical or emotional changes you have noticed with our veterinary team. This is another step toward understanding the overall health of your pet. An exam can help our team catch minor issues so we can address them sooner and potentially prevent larger health concerns.

Comprehensive Care

We believe diagnostic based, comprehensive care should be accessible to all pets. Our wellness plans allow us to make excellent comprehensive care more accessible and more affordable for our clients and their pets.

Wellness Plans

Our in-house lab provides bloodwork and diagnostics results to provide a more thorough understanding of your pet’s health. These tests are vital as a method to screen for underlying health conditions and infectious diseases. With the insight these results provide, our veterinary team can create a treatment plan quickly when health concerns are detected.

With an understanding of your pet’s health, our team can provide your pet with great healthcare for years. Your veterinary team is also knowledgeable about pet health concerns in our area. The tropical climate of Kaua’i is one of the many reasons we all love it here. However, one thing many pet owners don’t realize is that this climate comes with a year-round flea, tick, and mosquito season. That’s why it’s so important to stay current with parasite prevention and recommended vaccines to help prevent disease and keep your pet healthy.

Wellness and preventive appointments are also a great time to discuss concerns you might have about your pet’s overall health:

  • Dermatology: Because of our tropical location and mosquito population, we see many pets with skin problems. We can help you find the best treatment for your pet to keep their skin healthy.
  • Microchipping: A microchip is placed in your pet’s skin as simply as administering a vaccine. Having your pets microchipped can significantly improve your chances of being reunited with them if they’re ever lost.
  • Behavioral concerns: If your pet is struggling with issues like excessive barking or isn’t adjusting to changes in the home, talk to our team for advice.
  • Specialty diets: We carry a variety of prescription pet foods to address health concerns like kidney disease and obesity.
  • Geriatric care: As your pets grow older, they have different health needs. A checkup appointment is a good time to ask about special diets and lifestyle modifications as your pet ages.
