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!

      We LOVE this place! And are so glad we decided to switch and come here ! My puppy, Ted, can be a handful! Dr. Schmitt and the staff are so patient with him. From the minute we walk in he is greeted with smile and a treat! Even when he is being a little anxious and barking away! We had a couple issues with our Ted and Dr. Schmitt has been great with any questions or concerns we have. We would not take him anywhere else!

      Dr. Schmitt saved my dogs life with a very intense difficult surgery. She never wavered in her determination to save her. The entire staff was caring and concerned. No one can ask for anything else from such a great place!!!!!

      I have now used Animal Hospital of McHenry 3 times now, with each visit being extremely satisfying. It is always nerve-wracking trying a new vet especially for a fur-mom like myself. This vets office has been nothing but worry-free since the first phone call. Every time I bring my dog in they greet her by name with treats. They do a great job or making it a positive experience for both canine and owner. I have always been treated with the utmost respect, kindness, compassion and empathy. My dog had her surgery on her tooth performed at this location and they called me through out the day to let me know how she was doing. My border collie can be a bit of a handful when she is stressed but they handled her so well. They allowed her to roam the back or be in a play pen because she is frightened by crates/cages. They let my dog be herself and allowed her to feel comfortable at her own pace.

      Again, I would highly recommend them and I thank them for the kindness and compassion they have shown myself as well as my most beloved furry friend. I will continue to be a loyal client and trust The Animal Hospital of McHenry with my babies.
