Pets need annual check-ups just like their owners. Our veterinarians do a comprehensive exam of your pets, head to tail. Exams include checking the temperature, listening to the heart and lungs, checking the patient’s eyes, ears, nose, and throat, palpating the abdomen, and checking the skin. Each exam comes with a complimentary nail trim and ear cleaning. During these exams the veterinarian will talk with you about fleas, ticks, heartworms, diet, and vaccination protocols. Your pet’s health is top priority at our clinic. We want you to have a long, healthy life together!

Heartworms are very prevalent in Alabama, leaving your pet untreated can lead to a host of health problems. They are spread by mosquitoes from one dog to another.
One intestinal worm produces more than 100,000 eggs in a day, one flea can lay up to 1000 eggs a day and can cause intestinal parasites also. Prevention is the main goal for the treatment of your pets and is important to you and your family
Your pet should have a Wellness Exam at least every six to twelve months. Testing for heartworm disease needs to be done annually. A fecal examination should be done two times a year to make sure your pet hasn’t picked up any unwanted parasites.
