Keeping Pets Well

Here at Hazel Dell Animal Hospital, we want your pet to be healthy, just as much as you do. That’s why we recommend preventive wellness care in the form of pet vaccinations and wellness exams here in Carmel. We offer complete wellness care for pets of all ages, with consideration to their unique needs.

About the Wellness Visit

To give your pet the best chance at a good long life, we recommend annual exams at least once a year. These visits allow us to examine your pet from nose to tail and check for any health problems. Some of the things we look for include body condition, skin problems, heart disease, dental health, and arthritis. If necessary, we can also perform additional screening, such as blood work and X-rays, for an internal examination. If you have any questions about your pet’s diet, activity level, parasite control, or anything else, please feel free to discuss them with us. We want to educate you as much as possible so you can be equipped to best care for your companion from home.

Pet Vaccinations in Carmel

Pet vaccines should be included in your pet’s overall health plan because they provide protection against serious and even potentially fatal diseases. We can customize a vaccination schedule, based on your pet’s age, breed, lifestyle, and risk of exposure. This can include strictly core (essential) vaccines or a combination of core and non-core (non-essential) vaccines. Ideally, we recommend that your pet’s vaccines be updated on a regular basis. This can be annually or every three years, depending on the vaccine.
