At Falls Church Animal Hospital our goal is not just to be there when you need us for your injured or sick pet. Our primary goal is centered around the core belief that being proactive can help to drastically reduce the chance of your pet needing to visit our veterinary hospital for illness or injuries. We focus on preventative medicine and work to keep your pet happy and healthy from their youth through their senior years.
Regular visits and exams allow our veterinarians to care for your pet’s current health needs and help you plan for and manage their future health as well. These visits are opportunities to detect potential problems well before they become a major health risk for your pet. Should problems arise for your pet, through our constant care your pet will have a greatly increased chance for a positive outcome. Early detection and prevention of diseases has the potential to add many happy years to your pet’s life. Prevention also helps save money in the long run as preventing disease is much less costly than treating it once it has developed, and overcoming the damage it has caused to your pet’s health.
Our wellness visits are designed to include everything your pet needs to live a long, healthy and happy life. With regular physical exams, vaccination plans designed specifically for your pet, timely parasite prevention, nutrition counseling and management, behavioral counseling, and any of our many other available diagnostic tests that your pet may need, our veterinarians work with you to ensure the health and wellness of your pet.
It is important for us to understand your pet’s lifestyle as well as their current physical state so we can accurately assess them for risks associated with their lifestyle. To do so we will ask questions about how they spend their time at home, and the activities they enjoy and participate in with you. The more familiar we are with your pet, the better we are able to personalize their care.
Through our wellness visits our team will become more familiar with you and your pet, developing a bond and friendship which is important to all of us. We’re animal lovers too and we believe having a personal bond with your pet helps us to provide them with better, more compassionate care. If you have questions, please ask! Tell us about any concerns you might have for your pet’s health and well-being. We are your life-long partners for your pet’s health care. We are happy to discuss any aspect of your pet’s health with you, so that together we can provide your pet with the best care possible through every stage of their life.
