Pet Wellness Program

Chowan Animal Hospital offers a progressive new approach to veterinary care. Our Wellness Program embraces a focus on preventative medicine based on the specific life-stage of your pet. Each patient is assessed individually based on factors such as species, breed, age, and environmental challenges. Next we offer recommendations for prevention, nutrition, and diagnostic work-ups appropriate for your pet.

Our role is to educate you on those procedures and medications especially beneficial for your pet. This allows us to be more flexible with our recommendations, and gives you more control of your pets' healthcare.

The key our Wellness Program is an emphasis on the biannual or annual health examination. Each time when your pet comes in he or she will receive a comprehensive physical exam and age appropriate ancillary diagnostics (such as heartworm tests, parasite tests and blood work) to screen for early signs of disease.

Vaccines that are due at the time of the annual exam will be determined based on the current risk assessment of the patient. Patients with health-related concerns will be recommended more advanced diagnostics when needed. More frequent re-evaluations will most-likely become necessary for those pets with ongoing illnesses.
