Preventive and Wellness Care

Every pet deserves an annual wellness exam. During the exam, you have time to discuss concerns and questions you have regarding your pet and receive advice from the veterinarian. These visits are a time for the vet to xamine your pet and determine the best preventive care plan for them. At SVH, we recommend yearly fecal examinations, heartworm tests for dogs, and vaccines. Once your pet has reached 8 years or older, we strongly recommend annual blood work as this completes the picture of your pet's health from the inside out. Many common diseases of senior pets (8 years or older) may be detected on blood work before showing signs of illness.
