The staff at Inver Grove Heights Animal Hospital is committed to providing quality veterinary medicine and surgery for your pet in a caring environment so that you can enjoy a long, happy life together. As medical professionals, we recognize preventive medicine is the best way to keep your pet healthy and limit the lifetime cost of care. It’s our goal to work closely with you in developing the best health care plan for your beloved companion.
The basis of such a plan begins with regular wellness examinations that include thorough screenings for common diseases that could affect your pet’s overall health. We strongly encourage annual wellness examinations and vaccinations to ensure your pet remains healthy and happy.
Wellness examinations are the same for your pet as the yearly physical you receive from your doctor. It’s a chance for us to assess your pet’s overall health, discuss any changes we see, educate and update you on advancements in veterinary care, and is also an opportunity for you to discuss any of your concerns or ask questions.
As your pet enters his senior years, these screenings become even more important, which is why we offer semi-annual geriatric exams and discounted geriatric blood work packages.
Our comprehensive examination covers the following 12 body systems:
Due to the many recent discoveries and innovations in veterinary medicine, your pet can be protected against most major infectious diseases and bacteria. Many immunizations and preventative treatments are available that did not exist just a few decades ago.
Up-to-date vaccinations play a large part in keeping your pet healthy and free from disease. However, not every pet requires the same series or frequency of vaccines. Our veterinarians tailor a vaccine protocol to your pet based on his or her lifestyle and recommendations from the American Veterinary Medical Association.
Vaccine schedules are balanced to provide needed protection while not over-vaccinating your companion. Please contact us for more information about your pet’s vaccinations.
