At Swanbourne Veterinary Centre, we believe that early detection and prevention are the most important components to ensure that your pet lives a long, happy life.
While annual vaccination boosters are not required in every case, the most important component of the annual health check is the thorough examination your best friend receives. The other important component is you – take note of any changes in weight, water intake, new lumps or anything else different you may notice. A simple observation from you may help in an early diagnosis or prevention of illness.
6 Monthly Wellness Check
6 months after your annual check, we offer a health check, nail clip and hydrobath carried out by one of our qualified veterinary nurses. We will send you a reminder when this is due. The primary emphasis will be on checking teeth, skin, weight, lumps or any other issues you may have noticed. If one of our nurses indicates that something may be amiss then you will be given the option of a consultation with the vet at that time.
The Wellness Check is an attempt to capture anything unforeseen that may have arisen since the annual health check 6 months prior, however it is also a great opportunity to catch up on deworming, heartworm and flea control, or a growing waist line!
