Wellness Exams Keep Your Family’s Dog Healthy!

Dogs make wonderful family members!  We have many years of experience in helping you care for your family dog.  The best way to keep them healthy is through wellness exams. Wellness exams play a critical role in the early detection of any future health issues and are critical for disease prevention.

At Happy Tails Pet Hospital, we recommend that all dogs receive a complete physical examination by Dr. Dan at least once a year; some pets should receive more frequent exams.  Our annual comprehensive preventative medicine exam includes:

  • Thorough “nose-to-tail” physical examination.
  • An examination of your pet’s dental health.
  • Annual heartworm testing and prevention.
  • Recommendations for parasite prevention and control (i.e., fleas, ticks, intestinal worms and the deadly heartworm).
  • Vaccinations as necessary in accordance with your pet’s vaccination schedule.
  • An analysis of your pet’s nutrition, behaviors, and daily activity and exercise habits.
  • Recommendations for possible additional diagnostic testing as needed.

Your dog’s wellness exams help us understand your expectations as a pet owner and establish a long relationship with you and your furry family member.  Dental care, arthritis, nutrition, immunizations and lifestyle changes are important topics to discuss with Dr. Dan during your dog’s wellness exam.

Hands down the most amazing vet clinic there is! Dr. Dan, Dr. Jessica and the rest of the staff are the most caring and compassionate individuals you want caring for your pets. They empathize with you and deeply care for our four-legged children! I will never go anywhere else but Happy Tails!

We love Dr. Jess and staff! As a breeder it is very important to have a good connection with the vet you work with on a regular basis. Dr. Jess always makes it a priority to have a great connection with you and your pet, she gets down on their level and interacts with them making the visit a very positive experience for both the owner and pet. She is very knowledgeable and I fully trust the advice she gives is what's best for my pets. Dr. Jess really has a passion for what she does and it shows every time we are in the office.

No other place better to take your dogs. We’ve taken all of our 24 dogs over the years there! Never had a problem. Vets are compassionate and the techs show nothing but love to your animals, as if they were taking care of their own.

I have nothing but great things to say about HT. We first started to bring our new dog out there after being referred to them by a friend. They have helped our dog through many issues (that were/are caused by overbreeding). And they even saved her life when she fell deathly ill and had to have emergency surgery.
