At West Greenwich Animal Hospital, we truly believe that when it comes to keeping our animal companions happy and healthy, prevention is always the best medicine. That’s why we place such a strong emphasis on wellness care. Rather than only treating a pet when it has become ill, we want to work with you on a regular basis to help monitor and maintain your pet’s good health and prevent illness from occurring in the first place, whenever possible. Quality wellness care can add years to your pet’s life and vastly improve the quality of those years.

The wellness and preventive care services available at West Greenwich Animal Hospital are designed to meet the unique needs of each patient in every life stage that they experience. This includes routine exams, personalized vaccination and parasite prevention plans, pet spay and neuter services, nutritional, behavioral and weight management and anything else necessary to help keep your pet as happy and healthy as possible.

During a wellness exam, we’ll check your pet’s overall health and ask you questions about their eating, sleeping and exercise habits. This will help our doctors to gather a complete and accurate health profile for your pet. We can then use this information to monitor your pet’s health over time so that any changes can quickly be identified and addressed. Often, wellness visits provide our veterinarians with the ability to identify potential concerns before they have the chance to develop into a more serious and costly problem.

Finally, although perhaps most importantly, routine wellness visits give us the opportunity to get to know you and your pet better. We believe that quality veterinary care should be based on a solid foundation of trust and that developing a strong bond with our patients plays a critical role in our ability to deliver the individualized care and attention each one deserves. We encourage you to use wellness visits to ask any questions or bring up any concerns that you may have about your pet so that we can discuss them and put your mind at ease.

Keeping your pet happy and healthy is a goal that we both share, and it starts with a commitment to wellness and preventative care. Together we will do whatever it takes to help your animal companion enjoy a lifetime of good health.
