Wellness

When it comes to keeping your pet happy and healthy, routine wellness care provides the perfect foundation. These annual or semi-annual visits allow our doctors to gather a complete health profile for your pet and use that information to monitor any changes that may occur along the way. Early detection of disease can significantly improve the outcome for your pet and can reduce the costs of veterinary care for you over time.

During each wellness visit, our friendly, knowledgeable veterinarians perform a complete head to tail physical exam which includes a thorough assessment of all body systems. We provide your pet with the core vaccinations needed to maintain good health, as well as tailor additional vaccinations to the lifestyle of you and your pet. We will also discuss your pet’s nutritional needs, behavioral concerns, parasite control and wellness testing.

At Heartland Animal Hospital, we take pride in our comprehensive wellness and preventative medicine programs, which have been specifically designed to meet the unique care needs of each life stage, from puppies and kittens to adult cats and dogs to those pets that have reached their senior years. Most importantly, wellness visits allow us to get to know you and your pet better and to develop a solid bond that will last throughout your animal companion’s lifetime.

We want your pet to enjoy a long, happy and healthy life, and it starts with quality wellness care.

Preventing and Treating Hot Spots

Acute moist dermatitis, more commonly known as hot spots, occurs due to a bacterial infection on your pet’s skin. Your dog or cat will naturally bite, chew, lick or scratch his skin in response to an irritant. Unfortunately for your pet, this tends to increase rather than decrease his discomfort. Anal gland disease, allergies to fleas or food ingredients, mange, tick bites, and inadequate grooming are the primary causes of hot spots in companion animals.
