Wellness Care for Dogs

Wellness Care for Dogs

Just like you, we want your dog to live the longest, healthiest life possible. That starts with the basics:  quality food, enough exercise, good grooming, and, yes, regular check-ups.

Annual exams are your pet’s first line of defense. Redwood Animal Hospital’s comprehensive exams check the health of their coat, lung and cardiac function, internal health, oral hygiene, eyes, and ears.

Vaccinations: Keeping your canine up to date on immunizations and booster shots is a highly effective way to prevent many common diseases and infections. Beyond core vaccines, your pet’s age, lifestyle, and likely exposure to certain diseases will be evaluated before we recommend additional inoculations.

Dental Care: Imagine what your teeth would be like if you never cleaned them. Well, the same thing is happening to your dog’s teeth without good oral care.

Parasite Control: Fleas, ticks, worms – preventing them in the first place is much easier and ultimately less expensive than getting rid of them after they’ve infested your pet. We recommend monitoring your pet and having them screened for internal parasites regularly, and we offer a variety of alternatives for flea, tick, and heartworm prevention.

Proper Nutrition: There’s so much confusion about what to feed dogs. Grain-free kibble? Home-cooked meals? Raw food diet? Proper nutrition is so important to your pet’s good health, and we can help you figure out what is best for your pet and your lifestyle.

Senior Animals: At Redwood Animal Hospital, we love elder pets! We also know that preventative care is even more significant for them. Dogs age much more rapidly than humans, so diseases and illnesses progress faster as well. We recommend annual exams and screenings for seniors to help prolong and improve the quality of their life.
