Wellness Care: Planning Health for Your Pet
If your pets could communicate to you what hurts and when they are sick or injured, being a pet owner would be much easier. Since they cannot, you must search for other signs that your pet is ill, and if you aren’t an expert, it can be hard to know what to look for. That’s where our job begins. When you bring your pet to Madison Veterinary Hospital, we are glad to communicate on behalf of your pet and it starts with the most important step: coming in for the physical exam.
What’s Best for Your Pet
We believe the most valuable thing you can do for your pet is to keep him or her on a schedule of routine exams. We want to see your pet and to diagnose and treat problems before they become serious issues. Full-body exams provide us with the information we need to make a plan for your pet’s health. We tailor these plans to align with what your pet needs depending on lifestyle and age. Parts of your pet’s plan could include:
- Physical evaluation
- Dental assessment
- Blood work-ups
- Digital X-rays
- Nutritional counseling
- Take-home treatments
We have consistently found these regular evaluations prevent problems in the future and will often keep your costs down.
What’s Best for Your Budget
The information you will learn through the course of your pet’s wellness plan will not only make you a smarter pet owner but also a more cost-effective one. Our plans are our reward to you for striving to be the best pet owner you can be. By partnering with our vendors and bundling the services we recommend for your pet, these health plans make your visits to us more budget friendly. You can stop feeling guilty for skipping your pet’s exams to save money and start feeling the relief that comes with using better veterinary services for less.
At Madison Veterinary Hospital, we consider vaccinations a key to keeping your pet healthy.
If you have a new puppy in your family, we start our young patients on a booster series of vaccines. As they grow into adults, we transition their vaccine schedule into two- and three-year immunization series. Current information shows that many vaccinations provide coverage for more than a year, which makes protection from those conditions easier to maintain. To make it convenient and affordable, we bundle our vaccines into our health plans and vaccinate our patients on a case-by-case basis.
The core group of vaccines we administer for canines include:
- Distemper (also for felines)
- Bordetella pertussis (kennel cough)
For felines, the vaccines we administer include:
- Feline rhinotracheitis and calicivirus
There are additional vaccines necessary for your feline family member, depending on his or her lifestyle, against the following conditions:
- Feline leukemia
Our three-year schedules combined with our customized vaccine programs protect your pet from overvaccination and the dangers of these serious illnesses. Contact us to discuss your pet’s vaccines today!
