Preventive Pet Care in Hamden

Whether your best friend is a fancy feline or a carefree canine, you want him to live a long, happy, healthy life. We want the exact same thing for your companion. That’s why we advocate preventive care in the form of wellness exams, parasite control, and pet vaccinations in Hamden. Another important aspect of prevention is client education, which is why we offer the option of counseling at each wellness visit. With these services, our goal is to make and keep all of your pets well through every life stage.

  • Wellness Exams: Wellness exams allow us to evaluate your pet comprehensively and make note of anything out of the ordinary, whether it’s a lump, a bump, or red spots. We also record your pet’s Body Condition Score (BCS) to determine if he’s at a healthy weight. If necessary, we can schedule an appointment for advanced diagnostics.
  • Pet Vaccinations: Vaccines can protect your pet from conditions like Bordetella (in dogs) and feline leukemia, so we recommend that you keep your pet vaccinated as recommended. We can develop a schedule that’s tailored to your pet’s needs, with consideration to age, breed, and lifestyle.
  • Parasite Prevention: Keeping your pet on a year-round parasite preventive helps to protect your dog or cat from parasitic diseases, such as heartworm (mosquito-borne), Lyme (tick-borne), and flea allergy dermatitis. We can give you our recommendations for preventives during your pet’s wellness visits.
  • Counseling: We offer dietary, behavioral, and pet-family bond counseling for all of our clients. This is especially important for puppies and kittens. We can provide recommendations on the best foods as well as training tips so your companion can be a happier and more pleasant member of the family.
