Canine Preventative Care

Wellness exams keep your dog as healthy as possible!

A regular wellness exam by one of our veterinarians, combined with a thorough history, can often detect potential health problems before they become apparent to a dog’s family. Identifying conditions early enables us to minimize suffering and prolong a healthy life.  To protect your dog you need to be proactive and take specific actions to prevent disease and to detect it early.

The Value of Regular Wellness Exams

Wellness exams twice a year [or more often, depending upon your pet’s medical needs] are the best step to keeping your dog as healthy as possible – along with your vigilant observations at home. Bringing your dog in for regular wellness exams is the very best you can do to assure longer life and the highest quality of life for your dog.

The wellness exam is an opportunity for you to discuss any concerns you have about your dog’s health with one of our veterinary professionals. Topics ranging from nutrition, allergies, and bad breath, to mobility issues, risk of infections and any lifestyle and age related changes, are all important for your dog’s health, and our veterinarians’ expertise is at your disposal.

We Tailor Vaccines to the Needs of Each Dog

Vaccinating your dog keeps your dog healthy by preventing serious diseases.  At Portsmouth Veterinary Clinic, vaccines are individually tailored for each dog.  Dogs  have different lifestyles and needs and each dog is given individual attention and consideration at vaccination time.  We will take into consideration your pet’s age and lifestyle, such as exposure to the outdoors, travel plans, boarding plans, breed, health status and immune competence. These factors may change over time, so we will review your dog’s vaccination plan with you at each wellness exam.  Discuss with us what you have planned for your dog’s life in the months ahead and what has happened in the past. Information about vaccination reactions in the past is of critical importance for your dog’s safety during future vaccinations, so be sure to discuss your dog’s vaccination history with us. Rabies vaccine is required by state law for all dogs. For more information about rabies, please see these articles:

Please call us today to schedule a visit with one of our veterinarians so that together we may assess and discuss your pet’s health in detail.
