Preventive Pet Care You Can Depend On

pet wellness

A full wellness exam is conducted with the administration of every vaccine, including evaluation of the:

  • Eyes
  • Mouth
  • Teeth
  • Ears
  • Skin
  • Hair coat
  • Heart
  • Lungs
  • Abdomen and internal organs
  • Joints and hips

The veterinarian will also feel the body for lumps or bumps, check for fleas, and perform a rectal exam when necessary. To optimize pet health, we recommend annual preventive wellness care exams for every pet. Once your companion animal reaches a senior status, it is best to visit us at least twice per year to catch the early onset of common senior problems.

Puppy and Kitten Wellness Care and Vaccines

pet wellness

If you are the proud owner of a new puppy or kitten in Battle Creek, Union City, Marshall, or other surrounding Michigan communities, Log Cabin Animal Hospital wellness exams and vaccines play an especially important role in preventing your young and particularly vulnerable pet from infection. The companies we purchase our vaccines from have a guarantee that will generally pay for treatment if your pet contracts a disease that the vaccine should have shielded. Most will also pay for treatment if your pet should become ill from the vaccine.

Along with the vaccine guarantee, more added benefits from getting pet vaccinations through our animal hospital include:

  • Complete physical exams prior to vaccine administration to determine if your pet is healthy enough to receive the vaccine.
  • All vaccines are handled and administered with proper, standardized methods; vaccines purchased elsewhere may not correctly adhere to handling specifications (such as refrigeration), producing ineffective vaccines.
  • Presence of a professional veterinarian can be lifesaving if your pet should suffer from an immediate allergic reaction such as anaphylaxis.

Commonly Recommended Pet Vaccines

  • For cats:
    • RCP (rhinotracheitis, calicivirus, panleukopenia), commonly called “distemper”
    • Rabies
    • Feline leukemia
  • For dogs:
    • DHLPP (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis, parvovirus, and parainfluenza)
    • Rabies
    • Bordetella
    • Lyme

As our baby gift to your new puppy or kitten, you’ll receive a free educational booklet, a free dose of parasite preventive, and a complimentary nail trim. This gift is valued at approximately $40.
