Comprehensive Wellness Examination
At Good Shepherd Pet Hospital, the care and well-being of your pet is our number one priority.
A wellness exam is an overall general health assessment that may include blood tests, urinalysis, and parasite screening. In many cases, a wellness examination can help detect the early stages of disease. Wellness exams are recommended for most pets at least annually, but often at least every 6 months for senior pets and pets with chronic health issues. A wellness exam can help ensure your pet’s health and detect early stages of disease.

Sick Pet Exam:
Sometimes our pet(s) become acutely sick or chronically ill outside of regularly scheduled annual visits. At any time, pet owners can make an appointment with their family veterinarian at Good Shepherd Pet Hospital if your cat or dog seems to be feeling malaise, not eating or drinking, vomiting, diarrhea, having trouble urinating, experiencing troublesome itching or scratching, or having difficulty with breathing. If you are concerned about your pet’s health, we recommend that you call us immediately and we will work your pet in to be seen on the same day.
Rescue/Shelter Pet Wellness Exam:
Do you have a newly-adopted pet or rescue that you would like for us to care for at Good Shepherd Pet Hospital? We understand that inviting a new pet into your family household is a very big decision and commitment. We would like to help your family integrate your new, four-legged family member with our Rescue/Shelter Pet Wellness Exam. In addition to receiving our comprehensive exam, we will discuss how to introduce your pet into their new environment, any concerns you may have for multi-pet households, feeding schedules, behavioral issues, and more. Helping pet owners with such a joyous occasion as a newly-adopted pet is important to our team so that your new pet can adjust properly with optimal health.
