Annual visits to the family physician or general practitioner are fundamental to our health. Regular “well” exams present opportunities for guidance on diet, exercise, and other interventions to prevent diseases or stop or slow disease progression. They are also a cornerstone of early detection. Conditions detected earlier in the disease process are easier to resolve successfully and promptly than diseases diagnosed at a later stage (and have spread). Many of these same notions apply to preventive veterinary care. Wellness visits should be scheduled at least annually at San Marco Animal Hospital in Jacksonville, Florida.
These visits are comprehensive and involve a “nose-to-tail” assessment of your dog’s or cat’s health and well-being. This all-encompassing assessment presents a critical opportunity for our veterinarians to detect abnormalities promptly. Also, we have invested in cutting-edge technologies to support accurate and efficient diagnoses. The information that we glean from such diagnostic tools and know-how is then applied to develop a treatment plan that effectively resolves the symptoms your pet has been experiencing or the underlying condition responsible for concerning clinical signs.
Our veterinarians have developed a particular interest in preventive services. So, our clients can trust that any recommendations are based on what is in the best interest of their pets and that their pet is receiving quality care from competent, passionate, and dedicated doctors. No discussion about preventative veterinary services would be complete without also highlighting the following types of care:
Like us, our canine and feline friends are heavily influenced by their lifestyle and environment. So, we are consistently accounting for these factors and adjusting the likes of non-core vaccine recommendations, food products, exercise, and grooming to promote a healthy body condition, strong cognition, robust energy, and happiness (of course!).
