Importance of Wellness Exams
At West U Veterinary, we are strong proponents of proactive wellness care for your dog. Keeping your dog in good health means giving them a healthy quality of life through wellness exams, nutrition, dental care and proper exercise so that you and your dog keep a long-lasting connection.
Annual wellness exams allow us to create a wellness care plan for your dog. Having a plan will keep your pet healthy through vaccines, heartworm testing, parasite protection, and nutritional counseling. More importantly, because many pets do not show signs of illness or pain, annual wellness exams are critical in detecting any health problem early, when treatment is most effective. Your observations and wishes are a large part of the custom wellness plan best suited for your dog based on their unique needs, including breed, age, lifestyle, medical history, and current medical health.

- Complete Physical Exam and Consultation
