Wellness & Vaccinations

 

Do you want to know the secret to helping your pet enjoy a long, happy and healthy life?

As loving pet parents, we want our animal companions by our side for as many years as possible. At Animal Hospital of McHenry, we believe the best way to ensure this happens is by making a commitment to their ongoing wellness. By bringing your pet in for regular checkups, you’ll help protect him or her from many of the common ailments that can affect companion animals. You’ll also give us the opportunity to identify and address potential health problems early, before they have chance to develop and worsen. These simple things can add years to your four-legged family member’s life.

 

An Ounce of Prevention

Our wellness services are comprehensive and extremely thorough, because we want to do everything in our power to keep your furry friend healthy. At each visit, the doctor will examine your pet from nose to tail, looking for anything out of the ordinary. We’ll also develop and implement a customized preventative care plan tailored to your pet’s unique needs, lifestyle and risk factors. This will include vaccines, parasite control, nutrition and weight management and anything else we deem relevant to your loved one.

 

Ongoing Health Management

Wellness visits also provide us with regular snapshots of your companion’s health status at each appointment. We can then compare this information against previous exams to identify any changes. This allows us to detect the signs of illness early and develop an effective treatment plan in a timely manner. With many ailments, an early diagnosis can vastly improve the outcome for your pet. The more we stay on top of these things, the better chance we’ll have of extending and improving the quality of your best friend’s life.

 

Getting to Know You

Finally, annual visits give all of us at Animal Hospital of McHenry the chance to truly get to know you and your pet. Developing a relationship with you and forging a bond with your animal friend is an integral part of the care we provide. This allows us to partner with you in managing your loved one’s health, and also makes visiting the vet a more positive experience. The more we understand your companion’s needs, the more precisely and effectively we can develop a health care plan.

You want to see that special little guy or gal enjoy many wonderful years. At Animal Hospital of McHenry, we’d love to help you achieve that goal. Call today to get started!

      Dr. Tammy is very thorough and very thoughtful. She's patient and kind to her clients and their pets. Our dogs and cats showed no fear towards her or her staff. We'll never take our pets to anyone else. So very glad we found her!

      My cat Boots is being treated there for diabetes. He is on insulin. Daily shoots. They have been so amazing with him. They have showed us how to maintain care for our cat. Showing us how to give him his shots and take his level reading. Not only Dr. Mary Bishop, but the assistants they have working with them. Very on hands. Just recently we had to bring my bosses dog in as an emergency visit. We called ahead to let them know we where coming. They had a room waiting and the Doctor was right in to check her out. I highly recommend McHenry Animal Hospital.
