Wellness Exams & Preventative Care in Randolph, NJ
Protecting Your Pet’s Overall Health
At American Animal Hospital, your pet’s health and comfort are of utmost importance. We believe preventive care is essential for a long and happy life. We recommend annual wellness exams which focus on prevention. By seeing your pet at least once a year, we can detect disease or illness before it becomes a serious health concern. We work hard to develop a comprehensive health profile which helps us to look at trending issues such as weight or blood work results.
During your one on one time with the doctor, you will have plenty of time to ask, and have answered, any questions you may have. We truly value the time that you and your pet spend with us.
A comprehensive exam at American Animal Hospital includes a full snout to tail physical exam. We screen yearly for internal parasites and common diseases such as Lyme and Heartworm. Our vaccine protocol is customized to your pet’s lifestyle. We promote vaccine titers versus just automatically administering vaccines every 3 years. We believe that checking antibody levels before routinely vaccinating, decrease vaccine reactions and other possible complications.
The cost to titer is about the same as the vaccine. Don’t worry, should your pet’s titer come back low, the vaccine is no charge!
A comprehensive physical exam includes:
- Heart and Lung Evaluation
- Ear Examination
- Eye examination
- Dental Evaluation
- Neurologic evaluation
- Abdominal Organ Palpation
- Musculoskeletal Evaluation
- Coat and Skin Analysis
- Weight Assessment and Nutritional Counseling
- Heartworm, Tick-Borne Disease Testing (additional fee)
- Fecal Analysis (additional fee)
- Blood titers and vaccines if needed (additional fee)
Nutritional Information Resources
We want to make sure your pet’s needs are being met in every aspect. Just like you, nutrition is of the utmost importance. Our veterinarians will discuss what type of food is most beneficial for your dog or cat. As pets get older, their nutritional requirements change from when they were a growing furball.
Obesity is a large problem these days as 53.8% of dogs are considered overweight. When diets aren’t well balanced, not only can it lead to obesity, but it can lead to GI issues as well as skin ailments as well.
We can provide you with recommendations on the right food and supplements to keep your pet in tip-top shape inside and out. We know what our doctors tell us about being overweight, so we shouldn’t allow it to be acceptable for our pets. Our veterinarians can create a customized meal plan to shed those extra pounds and get your pet back to healthy!
