Wellness Exams & Preventative Medicine
Otherwise known as an "annual" exam, yearly exams are very important for protecting your furry family member's wellness and longevity. The goal of these exams is to catch diseases or problems early, to screen serious disease including lyme and heartworm disease, to discuss diet, flea & tick preventatives, and to vaccinate your pet against serious preventable diseases. Vaccines are, of course, a core part of keeping your pet safe and healthy, and we build our vaccine protocols around you and your family's needs and risks.
Is your pet itchy, vomiting, or just not right? We have a wide range of cutting edge diagnostic capabilities at Townsend Veterinary Hospital, which allows us to get an in-depth picture of your pet. Our extensive in-house laboratory allows us to perform a wide range of blood, urine and cytology tests in a short amount of time. We are also equipped with top of the line digital radiography (x-ray) and ultrasound (for abdominal and heart examination), which can be performed, if needed, during your exam. Dental radiography, endoscopy, and tonometry are also available as needed.
