Wellness and Preventative Care
Every pet is special and unique. For that reason, Adamstown Veterinary Hospital delivers wellness care that is matched to the needs and lifestyles of you and your pet. At a routine well-care visit, we discuss your pet’s health, behavior and nutritional needs, and address any questions or concerns you may have.
Preventative care is the basis of good health and we encourage you to participate in your pet’s wellness planning. There are many things you can do to improve the health of your pet. Our doctors will consult with you in the following areas:
- Dental health
- Exercise and nutrition
- Parasite prevention
- Weight management
We can implant a small microchip quickly and painlessly under your pet’s skin to help identify him or her if lost. A number that matches your contact information is embedded in the chip and can be easily read with a hand-held scanner. This is important in cats as well as dogs, since most indoor cats do not wear identification and can easily sneak outside. Microchipping can also serve as a lifetime license for dogs.
