Your pet is part of your family and naturally, you want them to stay healthy and full of life. The saying "an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" holds true in veterinary medicine and ensuring that your pet receives regular pet wellness exams is critical to their overall health. At Kindred Care Pet Hospital, we provide pet wellness exams in Richmond that aim to ensure your pet is as healthy as possible.
Richmond Pet Wellness Exams
A large part of our practice involves conducting Richmond pet wellness exams for pets who live in the area. A wellness exam is aimed at evaluating the overall health of your pet and identifying any potentially problematic conditions. We recommend pet check-ups in Richmond annually for most pets but may recommend every six months for senior animals or animals with certain health conditions. Our wellness exams include taking a complete medical history of your pet, a full body physical examination, and may include diagnostic testing such as blood work or fecal/urine analysis. Wellness exams may also involve the giving of routine vaccinations or testing and treatment for common intestinal parasites.
Kindred Care Pet Hospital offers a progressive new approach to veterinary care. Our Wellness Program embraces a focus on preventative medicine based on the specific life-stage of your pet. Each patient is assessed individually based on factors such as species, breed, age, and environmental challenges. Next we offer recommendations for prevention, nutrition, and diagnostic work-ups appropriate for your pet. Our role is to educate you on those procedures and medications especially beneficial for your pet. This allows us to be more flexible with our recommendations, and gives you more control of your pets' healthcare. The key to Kindred Care Pet Hospital Wellness Program is an emphasis on the annual health examination. Each year when your pet comes in he or she will receive a comprehensive physical exam and age appropriate ancillary diagnostics (such as blood pressure screening, parasite tests and blood work) to screen for early signs of disease. For participants in the Kindred Care Pet Hospital Wellness Program, any vaccinations due at the time of the annual exam will be given at current participant rates. Patients with health-related concerns will be recommended more advanced diagnostics when needed. More frequent re-evaluations will most-likely become necessary for those pets with ongoing illnesses.

Waiting too long in between checkups or only visiting the vet when your pet exhibits signs of illness can mean that your pet's disease or medical problem isn't discovered until it is too late.
