Preventative Wellness Exams for Pets in Bellevue
Keeping the pets of Snohomish and King Country healthy is a priority for us at Kraft Mobile Veterinary Services. Schedule a comprehensive wellness exam at least once a year to make sure your pet is healthy and developing properly. Puppies, kittens, and senior pets should receive more frequent care to accommodate any age-related concerns. During pet wellness exams, we examine our patients from nose-to-tail to determine if there are any health concerns, such as obesity, arthritis, or dental problems, and make treatment recommendations.
The First Year of Your Pet’s Life
During the first year of your puppy or kitten’s life, they require preventative care to address their specific needs. To start, we vaccinate against diseases and treat for any intestinal parasites. Worms in puppies and kittens are common and they’re growing bodies are susceptible to contagions. A series of cat and dog vaccines administered during this first year strengthens immunities and starts your pet on the right paw.
The majority of pets should also be spayed or neutered during their first year of life. In general, females are ready for this essential surgery slightly before male pets and can undergo the procedure around six months old. For many male pets, neuter surgery depends on their breed and lifestyle. During puppy or kitten pet wellness exams, we discuss when your individual pet can be scheduled.
Behavioral and Dietary Advice During the Wellness Exam
Sadly, some of the pets awaiting homes once had homes. According to an article published by AAHA, about 10% of pets in animal shelters are given up because of behavioral problems. At Kraft Mobile Veterinary Services, we consider it our duty to educate our clients on how to remedy any pet problems. In turn, we hope to see less animal overcrowding our shelters in Snohomish and North King County. Do you have a puppy or kitten who may benefit from obedience training? An adult pet who needs a little help being housebroken? Our knowledgeable team can answer your questions and more.
Through proper diet, we’re able to manage and prevent many common health issues. Along with behavioral advice, our comprehensive wellness exams include dietary recommendations. For your convenience, we have an online pharmacy for diets, prescriptions, and non-prescription products.
