Keeping your pet healthy is our primary goal at the Veterinary Clinic of Lubbock. After all, a healthy pet leads a longer, happier life!
In order to ensure that your pet is in the best health possible, we break down our wellness services into life stage categories, making sure that your best friend receives the care they need for their age and condition. We also take care to individualize care to suit your particular pet’s needs, as well as your financial situation.
Puppies and Kittens
When your new puppy or kitten is first welcomed into your home, we like to see them right away so that he or she receives any necessary treatments. We perform nose-to-tail physicals and any diagnostics that are recommended as a means of checking for underlying health conditions. We will discuss your pet’s health needs, from proper nutrition to preventive care. We will get your pet started on a series of core vaccines that are recommended for all pets. Core vaccines we recommend include:
- Bordetella or Kennel cough
- Rattlesnake (optional)
- Canine Influenza (optional)
When your dog or cat reaches adulthood, our veterinary team can begin tailoring your pet’s care to their individual needs as each adult pet is unique. During this stage of your pet’s life, we will continue to recommend veterinary appointments every 6 months to help us keep track of the progression of your pet’s health and needs. We conduct nose-to-tail exams, perform diagnostics to check for heartworm, and administer vaccines that have been deemed necessary for your pet’s needs. We will determine your pet’s vaccination needs through a discussion about your pet’s lifestyle.
Senior pets are the most diverse life stage, with each one being unique, having their own set of needs and health concerns. The recommendations we may make for your pet’s treatments will be based on assessments of their physical condition, as well as discussions with you about their lifestyle. After all, you know your pet best and we depend on your partnership to give your companion the best life.
