Wellness Services

templeton pet wellness exam

We believe good veterinary wellness care must be unique to each pet at their particular life stage. For example, a Golden Retriever puppy has completely different wellness needs than a 12 year old Pug. Rather than using a cookie cutter formula for wellness, we want to identify your pets' unique needs and build a plan specifically for them.

To that end, we take the time to get to know you and your pet. We ask open-ended questions and practice active listening. We give you the time to explain what you have seen at home and any concerns you have about your pet. Then, we perform a full physical exam to assess their overall health. Finally, we share our findings with you and our recommendations to keep your pet as healthy as possible.

In general, we believe preventative medicine is the best medicine. Therefore, we recommend either core vaccines or vaccine titers to prevent infectious disease. We also typically recommend medications to prevent parasites such as fleas, ticks, heartworms, and intestinal parasites. As your pet ages, we believe in screening lab work to identify any problems early so they can be effectively managed. Throughout your pet's life, we believe in the importance of diet and judicious use of supplements. We also believe in behavior counseling, when needed, to curb any negative behaviors your pet is developing throughout life.
