Pet Wellness Care
Pet wellness care is one of the most important things you can do for your pet’s health. It is recommended that your pet receives a full wellness exam at least once yearly at Abel Pet Clinic. Our vet will provide a full-body examination to evaluate your pet’s health and address any concerns you may have.

Prevention is vital to ensure your pet stays healthy for years to come. Pet wellness checkups enable us to spot any concerns before they become illnesses or problems. As with many diseases and conditions, the earlier they are caught, the better the overall outcome. That’s why it is so essential for your pet to bring your pet in yearly for a general exam.
During a wellness visit, your veterinarian may recommend any or all of the following procedures:
- A complete physical exam – We’ll discuss your pet’s diet, exercise, and healthy body weight. Additionally, we’ll assess their body condition.
- Routine screening and lab testing – Our screening helps to detect early signs of disease, which leads to better treatment outcomes if any illnesses/conditions are present.
- Dental exam and cleaning – Pets with routine dental care live longer, so regular dental exams are important. We’ll address any disease and discuss home dental care options with you.
Pet vaccinations – We will administer them if your pet requires any vaccinations.
Parasite prevention – Heartworm disease, fleas, ticks, and intestinal worms are all potential risks to your pet’s health. We’ll discuss keeping your pet free of parasites through routine screening and preventive measures.
Every pet is different, so pet wellness exams are designed to establish a baseline for your pet’s health. This way, we can find out what is normal for your pet and keep track of any changes.
Annual wellness exams are critical to maintaining your pet’s good health and provide a way for our staff to establish and expand our relationship with you and your pet.
The staff at Abel Pet Clinic appreciates you choosing us – you and your pet are valued members of our family. If you have any specific concerns or questions during or between exams, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
