Pet Wellness Care Through the Years
Wellness care begins at day one and lasts throughout your pet’s life. At Fayetteville Veterinary Hospital, your pet’s health and well-being is our primary concern. Our goal is to keep them healthy and active throughout youth and into their golden years.
Things to Keep in Mind
We believe the best, most comprehensive care results from open communication with you, the owner. If you are new to our practice, we ask that you bring in your pet’s vaccination and medical records or ask your former veterinarian to email them to us at Fayettevillevet@gmail.com. Knowing your pet’s vaccine schedule and medical history helps with continuity of care.
Additionally, please bring a fresh stool sample for us to test for intestinal parasites or worms. Parasites pose many health dangers to your pet, so we highly recommend keeping your pet on lifelong flea, tick, and heartworm prevention. At your appointment, we will gather more information about your pet’s health while also taking the time to answer any questions you may have throughout our exam.
Our wellness exam addresses the following:
- Body condition score
- Temperature, pulse, and respiration rate
- Oral health
- Heart and lung function
- Eyes, ears, and nose
- Skin and coat condition
- Musculoskeletal condition
- Lymph nodes
- Neurologic system
- Abdominal organs
My dog is VERY energetic!! The staff and doctors are understanding, friendly and caring. They take time to explain everything throughly. My dog is happy to go for appointments.
Following Up with Your Pet's Care
If any problems are identified during a wellness exam, we may order additional diagnostic tests to discover the root of the problem. Our in-house lab and imaging equipment yield results the same day. This allows us to start treatments right away. After this, we may recommend a re-check exam to be sure your pet is improving. We will also reach out to you by phone to follow up as well.
We aim to keep pets healthy at every life stage, and we look forward to helping you care for them throughout their lives.
