Tailored Wellness Plans from Great Falls Animal Hospital
Preventative Care in Northern Virginia & Washington, D.C.
When it comes to long term health care for your pet, the team at Great Falls Animal hospital believes it’s crucial that your pets get seen by a veterinarian on a routine basis. Annual wellness exams allow our team to get to know your pet’s health information and monitor any changes that may occur. By doing so, we can identify problems in their early stages and potentially prevent or treat them before they become more severe. Your pet ages much faster than you do, which is why they need to be seen more frequently. Our wellness plan can be customized to your pet’s needs depending on their breed, age, and current health.
We have three specially designed wellness programs:
- Puppy and Kitten Wellness (The First Year of Life): Your young dogs and cats deserve extra attention and care, and our Puppy and Kitten Wellness Programs provide the advice you need. Our veterinarians not only check your puppy or kitten to make sure he or she is growing right, but we share our best practices for raising healthy pets that live long, healthful lives.
- Junior Wellness (1 to 7 years of age): For dogs and cats that are less than seven years of age, Junior Wellness provides our veterinarians with an important baseline set of results from key diagnostic tests. As time goes on, we compare new results with the old to uncover hidden changes in your pet’s health.
- Senior Wellness (greater than pet's years of age): Older pets need special tests and exams to catch age-related diseases such as diabetes, cancer, kidney disease, Cushing’s, and others. In addition to the detailed physical exam and diagnostic blood work and urine testing, our veterinarians may also recommend an ultrasound, electrocardiograph (ECG), or radiographs (x-rays).
