Immunizations and Wellness Care

The professionals at Pontchartrain Animal Hospital think of wellness as more than an annual exam — wellness is an attitude of compassion and respect for the animal and a supportive approach that concerns every area and every stage of your pet’s life. From youthful vigor to a comfortable senior pet, areas such as nutrition, exercise, attitude, behavior, mental acuity, physical condition, and lifestyle are all considered in the overall wellness plan. This approach is designed to support the pet owner in developing and nurturing the human-animal bond over all the stages of the pet’s life. We believe this wellness attitude results in a more positive experience for both pets and their owners.

The first step is the wellness exam — a hands-on, head-to-toe assessment performed by our veterinarian, designed to identify potential or existing problems. Should we identify an existing or developing problem, we are aggressive in our approach to treatment with the goal of returning your pet to a vigorously healthy state as soon as possible.

In addition to this comprehensive physical examination, our wellness program includes internal parasite testing and prevention, external parasite control, routine immunizations, life-stage blood testing, and diagnostics or monitoring related to your pet’s individualized care.
