At Lee’s Veterinary Hospital, we offer wellness care with a focus on preventative medicine. We believe that the best way to reduce the development of serious illnesses in our pets and to minimize related health care costs, is to provide regular wellness checkups, and preventative care.
Although it is best to start annual wellness checkups when pets are young in order to protect immune systems that may not be fully developed, our veterinarians recommend regular wellness visits for all ages. Our wellness exam includes a thorough physical examination from nose to tail, checking vital signs, looking for abnormalities, testing for heartworms and other parasites. After assessing your pet’s risk of exposure to diseases, we will develop a vaccine schedule based on your pet’s species, breed, age, and physical environment. Wellness blood profiles and urinalysis may be recommended for your pet at certain ages or if they fit certain risk categories.
Our doctors will develop preventive protocols for your pet regarding the best ways to control fleas and ticks in your house, your yard, and on your pet. We will provide guidance for your pet’s nutritional needs for each life stage as well as dietary requirements for growth, weight maintenance, and performance. We also can spay or neuter your pet at the appropriate age, not just to prevent unwanted litters, but to lessen the development of cancer in both genders of dogs and cats.
The compassionate team of doctors and staff at Lee’s Veterinary Hospital is here to provide complete health care for your pet. We are dedicated to partnering with you in the health care of your pet from the first examinations and vaccinations of your young, healthy puppies and kittens, through early detection and treatment of disease as your pet ages.
Whether your pet is a puppy or a kitten, young adult, or senior, come see us at Lee’s Veterinary Hospital for your pet health care needs. If you live in the vicinity of Cullman, Vinemont, Fairview, or West Point, Alabama, stop by! We would love to get to know you and your pets and start them on a journey of healthy and happy living.
