At Cottage Animal Clinic of Carmel we believe that prevention is always the best medicine. That’s why it’s so important to bring your pet in for yearly exams. Routine wellness care is not only essential in keeping your pet healthy and happy, but these visits also allow us the opportunity to identify and address any potential medical concerns before they become a problem. Our comprehensive wellness plans have been specially developed to provide our patients with all of the necessary care and support they need to enjoy long, healthy and happy lives.

Since animals age at a more accelerated rate than humans, it is recommended that your pet be brought in for an exam at least once a year, and every 6 months as they get older. Our regular wellness care visits include a complete physical examination, during which time we will give your pet a thorough “nose to tail” checkup. We’ll also develop and implement personalized vaccinations and parasite prevention plans that are tailored to your pet’s lifestyle, as well as monitor your pet’s weight and nutrition to ensure a proper diet.

Finally, routine wellness visits provide us with a chance to get to know you and your pet better. We encourage our clients to discuss any concerns they might have and ask questions. Together we will form a team that will work hard to ensure a lifetime of health for your beloved pet!
