At Colony Animal Clinic, our Fairhope veterinarian is committed to providing your pet with the highest standard of wellness care throughout all stages of life. Our very own Dr. Dixon provides compassionate, skilled care to dogs and cats alike. Meanwhile, our veterinary and office staff works to ensure that you and your pet are as comfortable as possible by creating a welcoming, friendly atmosphere throughout our clinic.
When it comes to protecting your pet's health, wellness care from our veterinarian in Fairhope is one of the most important aspects. Specifically, wellness care allows our staff to stay on top of any changes in your pet's health and be proactive about them, rather than waiting until your pet begins to show signs or symptoms of a problem. As a result, we can more quickly and accurately diagnose health problems, diseases, and other conditions. This proactive approach, in return, may increase our ability to be able to successfully treat or manage health problems.
Of course, pet wellness care also focuses on making sure your pet leads the happiest and healthiest life possible. If you're not already bringing your pet in to see our veterinarian in Fairhope at least once a year for wellness care, now is the time to start.
We offer a wide range of pet wellness services right here in our office, beginning with our comprehensive health and wellness exams for cats and dogs alike. Generally, we recommend these once a year as a means of checking up on your pet's health and performing an overall assessment. However, if you have a senior pet or a pet with a history of certain medical issues, we may recommend that you bring your pet in more frequently (such as twice a year). These exams are a great way to enjoy added peace of mind when it comes to your pet's health.
As part of our wellness care, we also offer vaccinations, which we can administer at the time of your pet's exam as needed. Not sure which vaccines your pet needs? Simply bring in any existing veterinary paperwork you have for your pet and we'll determine which vaccines are needed, as well as provide you with an updated vaccination schedule so you can plan accordingly for future appointments.
Our veterinary team is also happy to assist with nutritional counseling; if you have questions about your pet's diet or are looking for help in getting your pet to a healthy weight, we have the experience and resources to assist you.
Wellness care is undoubtedly important to your pet's health and quality of life, so if your pet is due for any wellness services, contact our Daphne veterinarian at Colony Animal Clinic to schedule an appointment. You can reach us by calling (251) 928-7728.
