Prevention is the gold standard in pet health care. The veterinary professionals at South Wilton Veterinary Group make every effort to prevent problems before they start through the use of regular exams, routine blood work and testing, and vaccinations tailored to the needs of each pet.
We recommend that your pet receive wellness examinations by one of our veterinarians every six months:
Our diagnostic services are enhanced through the use of the latest in veterinary technology, including radiology, endoscopy, and ultrasound, all available at South Wilton Veterinary Group.
A twice-annual physical exam is essential to keep your pet healthy. These exams can help prevent medical problems before they become life-threatening and can also give your veterinarian a clearer picture of your pet's health. Senior pets may require more frequent check-ups, as one dog or cat year equals 7 human years.
If your pet is exhibiting any unusual behaviors or symptoms between your regularly scheduled visits, we recommend scheduling an appointment with your veterinarian immediately.
Vaccinations are a critical component in preventive pet health care. We tailor our vaccine recommendations to risk situations specific to each pet; we realize that each pet is different, and we determine your animal's vaccine requirements on an individual basis.
Puppies and kittens should complete the initial series of core vaccines within their first 6 months, with a booster shot at 1 year of age. At your new pet's first wellness exam, our veterinarians will determine what vaccines are necessary for your young companion.
Each year, millions of pets wander from home and many are never found again. If your pet is lost, you can increase the chances of finding your animal companion with a microchip.
Microchipping is a simple and painless procedure that implants a small microchip under your pet's skin. The microchip is small and unobtrusive, about the size of a grain of rice. Your pet's information is then registered in a national database, increasing the chance that your pet will return home if lost.
South Wilton Veterinary Group recommends the use of HomeAgain microchip services. Contact Tara Block at our office for all your microchip questions, email email@example.com, or call 203.762.2002.
