Wellness Care for Dogs

Smiling Beagle MixDogs are the paragons of enthusiasm, unconditional love, and boundless energy. To keep your four-legged friend at his best, South Auburn Veterinary Hospital offers complete wellness care tailored to the needs of your one-of-a-kind companion.

Canine wellness is an essential element in your pet’s health throughout his active adult years. Because our dog companions are often out in public and in natural areas with us, there are many risks to health and safety that are best addressed through consistent preventive care.

Included in your canine’s wellness appointment:

  • Complete Physical Examination
  • Vaccinations
  • Heartworm Testing
  • Tick-borne Disease Testing (as needed)
  • Fecal Screening
  • Blood Profile Analysis
  • Urinalysis
  • Parasite Prevention
  • Dietary and Behavioral Recommendations

If changes are found to your dog’s health or suspicious symptoms are present, additional diagnostics may be ordered.

Core Canine Vaccines

For the health of your canine companion, we recommend the following vaccinations:

  • Rabies
  • DHPP (distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza, and parvovirus)
  • Leptospirosis
  • Rattlesnake
  • Bordetella (kennel cough) for high exposure

Because we are seeing a rise in vector-borne illnesses like heartworm, Lyme disease, and ehrlichiosis, we encourage you to keep your pet on a year-round preventive.
