Wellness & Preventive Care
The core of our practice lies in ensuring your pets live long, healthy, and happy lives. Our wellness and preventive care services provide the proactive approach your pet needs to maintain their well-being. We believe in establishing a solid foundation of health and addressing potential concerns before they become serious issues. From the first meow or bark to their seasoned years, we are here to offer personalized, compassionate care every step of the way.
Here at FCAH, our team takes great pride in supporting the families of Falls Church. If you have a pet, then it’s important to have a vet you can trust to come up with a custom pet wellness program that you can follow to ensure your pet leads a happy and healthy life. Pet wellness and preventative care are just a couple of the many services we can provide in our office.
The most basic component of pet wellness care is the comprehensive wellness exam, which we highly recommend for pets at least once a year. We recommend exams more frequently, such as twice a year for older pets. These exams allow us to stay on top of any changes in your pet’s health and spot any possible red flags of disease or other medical conditions before they progress too far.
In addition to regular wellness exams, we also recommend preventative care services to protect your pets from disease, illness, viruses, and pests. For example, as part of each wellness exam we provide in our office, we will also take the time to review your pet’s records and make any recommendations for vaccinations that are overdue or near overdue. We can then administer any necessary vaccines to your pet in just a few minutes.
Furthermore, if your pet isn’t already on a flea, tick, and parasite prevention medication, we recommend speaking with our veterinary team about this. Even if you have a strictly indoor pet (such as a cat), these medications can provide you with the additional peace of mind and protection you need.
We highly recommend scheduling an appointment if your pet is overdue for an exam. Our Falls Church Animal Hospital team is here to provide the wellness and preventative care your pet needs for a healthier life. Call us today at (703) 532-6121.
