Bloomfield Wellness Care
Help Your Pet Thrive with Regular Wellness Care
One of the best things that you can do for your pet’s overall health and wellbeing is to make sure that you bring your pet in to see us at Essex Animal Hospital regularly. Most pets should come see us at least once a year - our Bloomfield veterinary team will let you know what is best for your pet. By staying on top of your pet’s healthcare, you’ll be able to enjoy many more happy, healthy years with your pet.
At Essex Animal Hospital, we know that no two pets are alike, so we take care to customize your pet’s treatments to ensure that their unique needs are being met. We’ll ask you plenty of questions about your pet’s health, habits, and behavior so that we can make informed choices about your pet’s medical care. We also encourage you to ask questions; we’re happy to answer them! Informed pet parents make for healthy, happy pets.
Wellness & Prevention: What to Know
Wellness care for your pet goes hand in hand with preventative care. As the old saying goes, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” At Essex Animal Hospital, we understand that part of protecting your pet’s long term health and wellbeing includes preventative measures. Our Bloomfield veterinary team will get to know you and your pet before we make recommendations about what kind of preventative measures will work best for your pet.
Preventative care can include:
- Parasite prevention
- Dental care
- Flea and tick control
- Regular blood work
- Behavioral assistance
- Nutritional counseling
Prevention looks different for different pets. Even if you have two pets from the same litter, their preventative and wellness needs might be entirely different from their sister or brother. This is why our Bloomfield veterinary team takes the time to get to know you and your pet, so that we can be sure that your pet is getting the right care at the right time.
A wellness exam at Essex Animal Hospital involves a physical exam performed by one of our highly trained veterinarians. We’ll examine your pet from nose to tail. This includes palpating their body and checking inside their mouth and ears. We’ll ask you questions, like if you have noticed any changes in your pet’s behavior or if you have any concerns we should know about.
No matter what your pet needs, our Bloomfield veterinary team is here for you and your pet. We understand that your pet is an important part of your family. They deserve the best care that we can offer. You can rely on the team at Essex Animal Hospital to care for your pet like we would care for our own.
