Wellness Care

Comprehensive Care for Your Companions

At West Orange Veterinary Hospital, we are committed to your pet’s health, recognizing them as a cherished member of your family.

That’s why we strongly advocate for annual wellness examinations to safeguard your furry friend’s well-being


Staying Up-To-Date With Annual Exams

Just like regular health checkups for humans, wellness exams are vital for maintaining your pet’s overall health.

We recommend scheduling these appointments at least once a year, with additional visits planned as necessary based on factors like age, medical conditions, and ongoing monitoring. 

During these thorough examinations, we ensure your pet is up-to-date on essential vaccinations, screen for heartworms, assess dental health, and meticulously examine for any concerning developments.


Nose to Tail Examination

At wellness appointments we perform a thorough examination of your pet, including their eyes, ears, mouth, skin, heart, lungs, digestive system, and musculoskeletal system. 

We also monitor your pet’s weight, which is a particularly important clue about their underlying health.

In patients predisposed to obesity we work with you to formulate a practical weight-loss plan. In patients who may have experienced unintended weight loss we help look possible causes.

We aim to identify any irregularities early in the course of the disease so that we can intervene to prevent more serious outcomes. 


Prevention Is Key

Prevention is the cornerstone of our approach to pet care. We offer a range of preventive measures during wellness exams, including vaccinations to shield against infectious diseases and parasite prevention to combat fleas, ticks, mites, and worms. 

We recommend annual bloodwork for pets of all ages to help identify silent diseases before they cause more obvious problems.
