Disease Prevention Paves the Way for a Long Life for Your Pet!
any vaccination package at any of our clinics.
While some of us may avoid routine care for ourselves, it’s not something you should practice with your pet. Pet Wellness Month is a great time to review some important points of care that all pets need throughout their life. Here are some reminders:
Vaccinations are an important part of preventing disease in your pet – Our clinic veterinarians and staff are ready to answer your questions and can help you determine the best vaccines for your pet’s lifestyle.
Heartworm, flea and tick preventative medication – Regular parasite protection is an important part of your pet’s health and comfort. Heartworm disease is easily and affordably prevented through the regular use of a heartworm prescription.
Every pet should have a yearly physical examination by a veterinarian – Some pets (eg. older pets) should be seen even more frequently. Bringing your pet to on of our veterinarians once a year helps us keep track of any changes in your pet’s individual values, and may help detect some disease processes before they become a problem.
Fecal testing and parasite control diagnose and prevent potential risks – Every pet deserves an annual fecal exam and monthly parasite prevention. With a fecal sample, we test for multiple intestinal parasites that could be affecting your pet’s current or future health.
Microchipping gives your pet a form of permanent identification – Microchipping*, available at VIP Petcare clinics, is an important step in keeping your pet safe. Even indoor-only pets can sometimes escape specially during the holidays. All shelters and veterinarians can easily scan the microchip and reunite you with your pet.
We offer nail trimming at select locations.

Anal Gland Expression
Not many pet owners have put thought into the health of their dog’s anal glands, but it actually is an important thing to keep an eye on. Healthy glands will empty the fluid your dog produces when they have a bowel movement. But not all anal glands work as they should.
Our Wellness Package, recommended for pets up to 6 years of age, includes a complete physical exam, blood work to check for vital organ function, plus half off any vaccine package if done on the same visit.
Wellness Package PLUS
The Wellness Package Plus, recommended for pets 6 years of age and older, includes a complete physical exam, blood work to check for vital organ function, urine analysis, thyroid check, and a fecal test, plus half off any vaccine package if done in the same visit.
Our Physical Exam, recommended once as a puppy/kitten and then annually, includes a comprehensive check of vital signs and discussion about nutrition. The veterinarian will also answer any questions you may have about your pet’s health. We compare this to a human’s “annual check-up” at the doctor’s office.
Do you hear your dog tap dancing on the floor? Is your cat leaving scratch marks on your furniture? Bring your pet into any of our Wellness Centers for a nail trim.
Do you think your pet may have a skin condition, needs a prescription/specialty diet, needs extra dental care, or diagnosis of a non-emergency issue? Our Wellness Center Veterinarians can help!

Win an Ultimate Fitness Vacation with your pet!
Lifestyle choices you make for your pets are important in maintaining their overall health. As with their people, pets need to stay up to date on their vaccinations, have regular diagnostic testing to ensure their health, stay on a preventative flea/tick/heartworm medication to keep them healthy and happy.
Of course, following a proper diet, getting enough sleep (as if that’s a problem – right?!), and exercising are also critically important.
In celebration of Pet Wellness Month, we are offering you promotions to help make this care easy and affordable…including a chance to win a trip to the Ultimate Fitness Vacation in Napa, CA June 18-22, 2018 – and you can bring your pet!
It’s easy to enter – from 10/2/17 to 10/30/17, just click to submit a brief video showing us how you exercise with your pet.
