As your pet’s caretaker, you are charged with the duty of keeping them happy and healthy for as many years as possible. Fortunately, this is a goal you don’t have to strive toward on your own. The team at Janesville Veterinary Clinic is ready to partner with you in providing your pet with a lifetime of ongoing care. Our comprehensive wellness services are designed to both extend the number of years you get to share with your loved one, and improve the quality of those years exponentially.

We’re not just here when your pet is sick!

Many otherwise responsible pet parents make the mistake of thinking vet visits are only necessary when sickness or injury strikes. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. Through a commitment to wellness care, we can work together to help prevent illness and protect your loved one against injury before it occurs. This means a happier, healthier life overall, which is always our ultimate goal.

What are wellness visits like?

Wellness visits for your pet are very similar to the annual checkups that your own doctor recommends. During a visit, the vet will conduct a thorough physical exam of your pet, making sure everything is functioning just as it should be. To further analyze your companion’s health status, we may also recommend running a few routine diagnostic tests, such as blood work or urinalysis. This helps us obtain the clearest, most accurate picture of your pet’s condition.

Another important part of wellness exams is the preventative measures we take to protect your loved one against many of the dangers he or she will encounter during everyday life. We will determine precisely what your pet’s unique risk factors are, and then use this information to develop a customized plan that includes such important things as vaccinations, parasite control, nutrition and more. The more proactive we are about your pet’s health, the more we will be able to extend that health over time.

Routine wellness visits are also an important tool in identifying the signs of medical problems early. When we are able to examine your pet at least once a year, we are better able to recognize the subtle signs of illness and address it quickly, before it has a chance to progress and worsen. This can vastly improve the outcome for your pet. It’s also a much more cost effective approach for you, since managing disease in its earliest stages is typically much less expensive than treating it once it’s developed.

Our commitment to wellness…

At Janesville Veterinary Clinic, we are committed to working with you in helping your loved one enjoy many years of health and happiness. Our wellness care is designed to adapt with your pet throughout each stage of life – whether it’s a first round of vaccines for your new puppy, ongoing health screening for your adult cat, or specialized care for your senior pet. By addressing your companion’s exact needs, we are able to ensure that he or she always receives the most precise, effective care with each and every visit.

Lastly, although just as important, routine wellness visits provide the ideal opportunity for all of us to get to know one another better. You will have the chance to ask questions, discuss your concerns, and understand all of your options so that you can always be confident in the health care decisions you make for your pet. Likewise, your loved one will feel more comfortable visiting with us, which will make the quality of care that much better with each appointment.

Your best friend deserves the very best. It starts with a solid foundation of wellness and preventative medicine. Let’s work together as a team to help your loved one enjoy a long, fulfilling life. Call to schedule your pet’s next wellness visit today. You’ll both be glad you did!
