The Benefits of Pet Wellness Care

The Benefits of Pet Wellness Care

The Animal Hospital at Lake Brandt offers our Summerfield area clients all the great benefits of wellness care for their pets. It's a good idea to have your pet checked out regularly, in the same way you'd get a checkup at your doctor's office. Why? Because pet wellness care has a lot of value, for both you and your pet. Here are some of the biggest and most important benefits to consider, when you're deciding whether to schedule a wellness care exam.

Your Pet Can Live Longer with Preventive Care

When you bring your pet to our animal hospital for wellness checkups on a regular schedule, you give our veterinarian the chance to catch problems early. Your pet may get a clean bill of health. But if something's wrong, treating it early can mean a much better outcome. Small issues that are handled right away generally don't turn into bigger issues. Your pet will have the chance of a better, longer life when they have frequent wellness checkups on a regular schedule.

Your Wallet Could Thank You, Too

While your pet's health should be the most important thing, preventive care like wellness checks are also often less expensive than treating issues that are more advanced. When your pet is checked out regularly, the cost of treating a small problem that's found is typically much less than treating a bigger problem that was left untreated for a long time. Wellness checks are a great way to protect your pet's health, but they're also a good way to save yourself some money.

Feedback from our clients

  • "I have been taking my 16 year old lab, Oscar, to this vet since he came to me in 2004, and I wouldn't take any of my dogs anywhere else! They are so wonderful with both pets and people. I would recommend any of the doctors and staff to anyone."

  • "We have been going to another vet for years. We wanted to have our year old Wheaten Terrier, Rylee spayed by laparoscopy so she would have less pain and be back to her usual activity in 2-3 days instead of 10-14 days. Our vet does the traditional spay. We had a consult meet and greet with Dr. Courtney Pierce. She answered all our questions and so friendly and professional. They have a state of the art OR suite. Rylee did great. On post op day three she spotted a squirrel and did an all out chase with no ill effects! All the staff were great."

  • "I love Dr. Jernigan at AHLB and would never take my dog anywhere else! The staff is excellent with animals and always professional, courteous and respectful to owners. I have trusted this animal hospital for all of my dog's care, including check ups, surgeries (she's had three!) and for boarding when we have to go out of town. Every experience I have had here has been wonderful and I highly recommend their services to anyone looking for a veterinary office for their furry children!."
